7 Romantic Ways to Wear "Something Blue" on your Wedding Day
There are so many ways you can incorporate "something blue" into your wedding day. But, one special way is with a sapphire gemstone {the traditional symbol of nobility, truth, and romance} that can be worn again and again after your big day. This month, there's something extra special about blue. Not only is sapphire the birthstone for September, but today happens to be my little girl's 3rd birthday {who tends to answer blue nearly every time you ask her "what color is this?"}. I think she realizes how pretty blue is.

Today, I have teamed up with Blue Nile and I'm sharing with you my 7 romantic ways to have pretty Sapphire Gemstones be the "something blue" on your wedding day. PS: simply use the coupon code BRENDA when shopping at Blue Nile to save 10% online or via phone.

How to Pair Your Summer Wedding Fashions with Your Jewelry

When it comes to weddings {whether you are a guest or the bride} - the parties before the wedding or the special day itself deserve to have pretty jewelry that matches the dress. Today, I've teamed up with Blue Nile to bring you a fun post where I'm pairing pretty jewelry {with pricing from under $100 to under $500} along with a cute coordinating dress that's perfect for any of your summer festivities.

Summer Weddings : Fashion Styling in Nautical Stripes for Under $100

For under $100 - you could pair this Petite Anchor Pendant with the Line and Dine Dress from ModCloth. Instead of finding a dress that has even more anchors on it {I came across many like this in my searches}, pair this delicate necklace with a complimentary dress. One with navy blue stripes and a red bow at the waist is the perfect way make a nautical statement without going overboard {pardon the pun}.

PS: This Petite Anchor Pendant in Sterling Silver could be yours for FREE

Summer Weddings : Fashion Styling in Vibrant Amethyst for Under $200

For under $200 - I've paired the vibrant Amethyst Cushion Pendant (on sale for $108) with the jersey knit Callback Confidence Dress in sassy purple from ModCloth. The neckline of this dress is perfect for the two amethyst gemstones to fit between.

Summer Weddings : Fashion Styling in Lapis Bright Blue for Under $300

For under $300 - I've paired the Lapis Statement Necklace ($220) with the Beguiling Beauty Dress from ModCloth. The striking neckline on this dress is perfect for a statement necklace with the lapis gemstones. I also love the cummerbund-like pleating above the waistline.

Summer Weddings : Fashion Styling in Colorful Peridot Green for Under $400

For under $400 - I've paired the colorful Peridot and White Topaz Dangle Pendant ($315) with the handmade summer floral sundress from Lovely Melody Clothing. Love how this necklace brings out the pretty green in the dress and contrasts beautifully with the bright pink flowers.

Summer Weddings : Fashion Styling in Pretty Blue Topaz for Under $500

For under $500 - I've paired the Blue Topaz Halo Ring ($425) with the Baby Blue Vintage Style Sundress from Lovely Melody Clothing. Just as a classic round gemstone ring is timeless - so is a pretty little dress with a bow at the waist. Neither type of design will ever go out of style.
