If you would rather incorporate your Something Blue into your reception instead of your attire, blue signature drinks are an awesome way to do this. Not only are they super fun and pretty, but they will add that little extra something special to your reception! There are different variations of blue drinks that already exist. Most bartenders know how to make these but if you want something all your own, talk to your bartender or venue about creating a drink that reflects your taste.

Blue nail polish will provide you with a great photo op and it will draw more attention to your hands and your shiny new wedding band! Two of our favorite colors are Barbados Blue by essie & Yoga-ta Get This Blue! by OPI but there are many shades of blue to chose from.

Experiment with colors before your wedding.   If you think the blue is too much for your nails then consider it as an option for your toes. Whatever you decide have fun!
