Why You Should Have a Something Blue Crew

Have you ever heard of the Something Blue Crew? If not, get ready to discover a fantastic twist on the traditional element of something blue, that also makes those you cherish deeply feel loved and involved on your big day. 

So what is the Something Blue Crew, you ask?

Well, it’s an amazing concept that really adds a unique touch to your wedding day! Members of the Something Blue Crew are people you love dearly, and want to be part of your big day, but who (for one reason or another) are not part of your bridal party.  

You can have them wear something blue, and invite them to come get ready with you for your big day. Essentially, they get to be your something blue. While they may not be standing next to you during the ceremony, they still play a special role in your day. Best of both worlds, am I right?

Why is it so awesome?

I see brides all the time struggling to choose who will stand up with them on their big day. It can be so hard to pick who gets to do that when you have a big friend group, lots of siblings or family you also want involved. This way, you get to still have all your favorite people with you getting ready for your big day, without having to have a 20 person bridal party.

You can also choose to have your crew involved in your day however you like, getting ready with you doesn’t have to be the end of the road. It’s truly up to you, and how big you want to dream! 

So if you’re looking for a fun and inclusive way to share your special day with those close to you, consider assembling your very own Something Blue Crew. It’s a memorable way to celebrate friendship and add that extra touch of charm to your wedding festivities!

Making my dream wedding come true!
Gabriella was hired by my (now) husband, as a surprise photographer for our proposal. She was phenomenal and we hired her for our wedding as well! Her energy and vision for our wedding photos captured every moment and emotion. She was amazing in every way. Her attention to detail and knowing what was important to me on my big day was awesome - she went the extra mile. I would 10/10 recommend her to any one wanting to capture beautiful moments in life - for their engagement, wedding, and more.

"She went the extra mile."

- Megan W.

Hiring Gabriella was one of the best decisions that we made during our wedding planning. From our very first conversation, Gabriella was warm & bubbly. She radiates positive energy that I knew that we needed for our big day. Gabriella has a vigorous work ethic and eye for detail. Her ability to transform any setting is pure magic. We enjoyed working with her throughout the planning process and are absolutely thrilled with our engagement and wedding photos (which she had edited and back to us in less than one month!).

"One of the best decisions"
