When it came to deciding what I would have with me on my wedding day as my “something blue,” I was initially a little stumped. Granted, many brides choose to have some kind of undergarment represent their “something blue,” like a garter:

But, I kind of already have an idea for my garter, so I knew I didn’t want to go the semi-traditional blue route. That ended up leaving me, well, nowhere.
But then—oh, then!—super-amazing, awesomely fantastic Mama Dillo had the most wonderful idea EVER for my something blue! During my most recent birthday, I opened up these gorgeous beauties

They’re a pair of aquamarine drop earrings set in sterling silver and surrounded by tiny white sapphires. They’re somewhat dainty with a definite vintage feel to them, which is sort of what I’m trying to implement in my wedding-day ensemble. The aqua blue color of the stones is very faint and subtle, which I only think adds to the gorgeousness of them. They’re especially sentimental since aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March, which, of course, is the month the mister and I are getting married!

I am so, so, SO SUPER DUPER EXCITED to wear these earrings on my wedding day, and I think they’ll look completely perfect with the ensemble I’ve dreamed up in my mind. It’s kind of ironic that I’ve settled on practically every aspect of my wedding-day attire EXCEPT for my dress, so I guess I’ll just have to end up picking a gown that goes with all my accessories!
Did you end up picking out other items of your wedding-day ensemble before you settled on a wedding dress? What are you using as your “something blue”?
