Easy something blue ideas

I'm on a time-crunch and could use some help! My wedding is this Saturday, and I need to find my "something blue". I thought I had it covered. I was going to pin one of my late father's military medals to the underside of my dress. I was sure it was blue....it's not, it's green. I still plan to wear it because I want part of him with me. I just have nothing as a backup. I don't have much of a budget to get anything either. I don't I don't have to have something blue, but it's something I want. Any ideas for a easy and affordable something blue I can get before Saturday?

    My garter had a blue ribbon on it. My perfume was Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. My shoes had blue soles.

    Other ideas: you could paint your toe nails blue, that way they won't really be seen but you know they are there. Add a blue ribbon to your bouquet. Have your bridesmaids sign the bottom of your shoes in blue sharpie.

    I've had this on my Pinterest board since college! I think it's really cute! Your bridesmaids could just write a congratulatory message on the bottom of your shoes in blue sharpie. Smiley smile

    Toenail polish!! There are so many shades of blue out there, I'm sure you can find one that will match--or at least not clash--with your wedding. Also I say toes, not fingers, because most brides have a fingernail look already planned, since everyone sees your hands.

    Other thoughts I had: earrings, anklet (or other jewelry), ribbon for your hair, Some kind of charm/pin to go into your bouquet (although I know your bouquet is purple, so not sure about that one). Look for some inexpensive costume jewelry, like from Claire's. Even a hair comb that has some blue in it would work.

    You could also do a light blue statement nail on your ring fingers.

    What Melle said.

    I wore a Ravenclaw diadem comb, which, of course, had blue, but I also wore blue underwear, juuuuuuuuuuust in case something happened to the comb.

    I hope that showed up as a link. Etsy has these cute panties that you can personalize that would be great with blue writing
