As traditions go, this is one we all know very well. Whether you’ve dreamed of your wedding day since you were a child or just started planning when you met your one and only, “something blue” has or sill unavoidably pop into your mind.
As many people have undoubtedly gotten engaged recently or will come February 14th, I thought I’d help out with your planning with some fun ideas!! Just pin them and save them for later if you’re waiting on your honey to pop the question.
Some of you are “traditional thinkers” and some are “out of the box” thinkers but whatever your mode, these ideas might just be what you never knew you always wanted.
First, let me start with the obvious. Well obvious for me anyway being a makeup artist. What if you forgo the traditional soft browns and blacks and went with a more electrifying and captivating eyeliner? Makeup Forever has an amazing waterproof formula that will make your eyes the focus of your day. Windows to the soul and all, this isn’t exactly a bad idea!!
If that’s too much for you, maybe mixing your black/brown traditional liners with a blue mascara?! MAC makes an intense blue that will fringe your eyes in a unique way.
Need your black liner, black mascara and lashes? I’m with ya sister, cuz i can’t live without them either. What if you added a smidge of YOWZA to that bridal look? YOWZA in the form of Makeup Forever’s electric blue eye shadow that is!!! This creamy powder glides on, crease free, leaving a trail of pigmented yumminess that begs you to make it a staple in your makeup bag. We’re not going for 80’s here, we’re going for edgy so don’t get all crazy with the hot pink cupie doll blush and frost pink lipstick on me now.
Leading into other fun options, maybe your jewelry can have a pop of color a midst the diamonds and pearls! Just look at these earrings! Can you just imagine these (or something like these, I’m just giving ideas here) dangling from your lobes?!
What about this amazing necklace draped around your neck adding to the elegance you’re already radiating? Again, we’re going with the idea not necessarily the exact piece. Though this one is kind of amazing and I think the makers are Nagota Creations.
Here’s another idea I saw as so our darling since it adds just enough subtle color without distracting from say, your dress. These hair pins fit sweetly and snuggly into your curls, waves & buns, kind of like the frosting on a cake!
One little detail that people don’t really think of are the shoes! Sure you can wear a garter with something blue, a bra with a blue flower or whatever else hidden so you an just get the tradition “handled” but what about a delicate feminine detail that would only be seen if you so decided. If for example you say wrote your vow of “I Do” on the bottoms of your shoes, how cool would that be for your guests to see it as you kneel in church? I just love that idea.
My last little brainstorming idea was to buy clip on earrings, in blue (duh) and clip them to the backs of your shoes. This gives them a bit of bling without going over the top! I’d love to see what ideas you guys have!!
