We all know the rhyme…but as with so many wedding traditions, we’ve got questions. Who gives the bride something blue, for a start? Does she have to wear something blue all day? Should it be a part of her all-day wedding lingerie set?

Whether you’re a friend, lover, bridesmaid or family member, we’ve curated our perfect ‘something blue for the bride’ edit. You’ll find something to delight her, and make those getting-ready-with-the-girls moments extra special.

Read on for the best and brightest ‘something blue’ ideas, including not only the lushest lingerie pieces, but swimwear and accessories too!


We’re starting off bold and beautiful, with the Eladie balconette lingerie set. An unpadded balconette style, featuring delicate 3D floral embroidery and in a stunning pale blue, we adore how the extra knicker strapping brings something cheeky to an otherwise time honoured treasure. 

Okay, the bride’s main dress may call for smoother underwear. So she can hang this super set up for later, ready for the bridal suite after party with her bae! The Eladie suspender and Blue plain top hold ups simply can’t be left out of this marriage, either - they’re the perfect match to this sweet set.

If bridey likes her lingerie sets simpler, the Gracey balconette lingerie set makes for a super cute ‘something blue’. Sheer floral lace, keyhole and satin bow elements will ensure she stays in her element, whether that’s as centre of the day’s attention or deep in the dancefloor shenanigans later on! This one’s a total keeper - meaning it’s a set not just for her wedding soirée, but one she’ll wear again and again. 

The bride’s ‘something blue’ has to be totally blue, said no one, ever. Give the gift of graceful little touches, à la Eloisa longline lingerie set. Boned for a structured feel, we’ve a feeling she’ll say ‘I do’ to this one and its subtle touches: Contrasting pale blue bows and corset-style strapping? Yes please.

We all know her. The bride-to-be who has the day planned out to the minute. Every last detail is covered, which - we know - leaves very little room for traditional ‘something blue’ gift giving. We’ve got you though, ladies. 

Help out for her honeymoon with a little bikini or beachwear inspo. The Vienna triangle bikini set is slick yet sexy, sporting high shine fabric and gold hardware rings. Frill edging brings the right amount of feminine energy and whether she’s headed to sunnier climes or staying closer to home, this two piece will be sure to turn up the heat!

The same goes for the Amalfi balconette bikini set. Bright turquoise brings the ‘something blue’ tradition right on trend for summer '23' - wide straps and ruched adjustable cups will see that she slays all through her honeymoon holidaying! If she’s got a tan, the turquoise blue will help it pop to the max, but as turquoise looks good on everyone (yep, it’s a mix of cool blue tones and warmer yellows), paler princesses will flourish in this beauty, too.

Accessorising with a little something blue a little more ‘you’? Whether you’re the bride or the gifter, the Bridal lace garter makes for a subtle yet fun gift that only she and you will know she’s wearing - that is, unless she loves the spotlight!
