What does a blue wedding dress mean?

The color blue symbolizes love, peace, and loyalty. It’s also a universally loved color — it’s the shade of the sky and the ocean, and we can’t help but feel calm when we look at it. Sounds pretty perfect for your wedding day, if you ask us!

While there’s no specific meaning behind wearing blue wedding dresses, there is meaning behind rocking the shade (in some way or another) on your big day. You may have heard of a little tradition called “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” (And “a sixpence in your shoe,” but that part is usually left off!)

Thought to bring good luck to brides on their wedding days, this age-old rhyme dates back to Victorian England and describes four things you should wear on your big day.

Back then, wearing “something blue” as you tied the knot was believed to ward off the evil eye, as well as symbolize love, loyalty, purity, and fertility. Today, it’s a fun way to incorporate some color into your look! And blue wedding dresses take that idea to the next level.

How to Style and Accessorize Blue Wedding Dresses

Since blue is such a versatile color, how you style blue wedding dresses will depend on the season, your wedding style, and the shade of blue you choose!

Lighter blue hues look so dreamy with classic white details (like traditional bridal veils or timeless white pumps) and silver jewelry. Darker blues, like navy or sapphire, really shine with neutral blacks (such as a black bow tie sash or faux fur wrap) and hints of gold.

And because of the color’s fairytale vibes, ALL shades of blue wedding dresses go great with a bit of whimsy and sparkle — so don’t be afraid to rock a dazzling statement necklace, a blossoming flower crown, or some glittery shoes!

What color shoes go best with blue wedding dresses?

Speaking of wedding shoes…if you’re a shoe fanatic like us, you may be wondering what pair will look best with a blue bridal gown. And while there’s no right answer to finding “the one,” there are a few colors of shoes that go best with blue wedding dresses!

If you’re afraid of clashing, you can’t go wrong with a blue on blue ensemble. We’re big fans of blue wedding shoes all the time (they make the cutest “something blue”), and especially with blue gowns! Just be sure to look for a shade similar to your dress — they don’t have to match perfectly, but navy blue shoes probably won’t complement a light blue dress.

If you want some contrast, we also love the look of both black and white shoes with blue wedding dresses. Black is great for formal or winter weddings, while white brings in some of those classic wedding vibes.

And for a dose of glam, sparkly kicks are always a good idea. Some rhinestones, glitter, or shimmer on your shoes will brighten up your look and give you major dazzle for your big day. Yes, please!
