You hear it time and again that the bride must have something old, something new, something borrowed  and something new, but do you know why this is so? The saying comes from the Old English rhyme, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe” and simply means they are carried as good luck charms.

Each item represents the following:

  • Something Old – Continuity
  • Something New– Optimism for the Future
  • Something Borrowed – Borrowed Happiness
  • Something Blue – Purity, Love and Fidelity
  • A Sixpence in your Shoe – A wish for Good Fortune and Prosperity
Usually, it’s quite easy to find something old (i.e. heirloom jewelry), new (i.e. the dress!) and borrowed (i.e. a broach in your hair), but blue can be a tricky one! Here are a few ways you can incorporate that “Something Blue” into your wedding attire:
