We Ask Wednesday: Real Brides Share Their 'Something Blue'

If there's one centuries-old tradition that isn't going away any time soon, it's brides having a "something blue." After all, this color represents loyalty and love's purity so why not make it part of your wedding day? It can be tough to find that perfect blue detail, so as part of our weekly "We Ask Wednesday" series, we asked real brides to share what they chose. From details that held sentimental value to details that were lighthearted and fun, these brides are sure to inspire you. See the rest of the responses on Facebook and Instagram.
