Garter

Another wedding tradition that many brides will take part in. There are a couple of different stories behind brides wearing a garter but one thing is for certain; it presents a perfect opportunity for them to include something blue in their wedding day attire. It's a symbolic accessory and also hidden from view (most of the time) so it won't clash with whatever colour scheme you've chosen for your wedding day.

Sash

Finish off your dress with a blue sash around your waist. It will add a wonderful touch of colour and detail to your outfit and keep you adhering to tradition nicely.
