1. Wear blue wedding shoes.

Why not look at blue wedding shoes if you’re looking to incorporate the tone? Either can have an accent of color, or they can be a fully blue pair of shoes.

2. Add sapphire-colored charms to your wedding veil or hair.

You can buy metal charms that will sit on the base of the comb on your veil. Additionally, these elegant charms can be a great way to add a lovely and subtle hint of color to your veil.

Have the groom, the bride’s father, or even the whole bridal party wear blue bow ties. As a result, doing so will give your wedding tradition something everyone can participate in.
