Is Blue the New Blush?

by Azure

For a while there, it was all about blush pink wedding gowns as unique bridal alternatives to traditional white dresses. And the introduction of blush by most all of our favorite designers opened up the door for more dreamy colors to make their marks on white aisles everywhere. My prediction? That wedding dresses in shades of powder and sky blue, pale aqua, and pastel turquoise will give blush a run for its money in 2013! I mean... just look at the divine confection by Claire La...

Something Blue to Fit Your Budget

by Azure

If I could choose any Something Blue under the sun, it would be the Christian Dior Haute Couture stunner above.

Turquoise for Your Something Blue

by Azure

After complimenting my sweet grandmother on her turquoise earrings a few times, I became the proud new owner of these vintage gems. The earrings have been passed down for generations, and were given to my grandma by her mother. I started thinking about how gorgeous these would be for a bride's something blue, and since they're vintage, they'd count for her something old, too! I've always been a fan of turquoise. The stone, the color, you name it. If you're like me, then turquoise...
