Something Old, Something New

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” dates back to the Victorian Era and actually includes another line: “And a silver sixpence in her shoe.” Each line in the poem represents a good-luck token for the bride and has a specific origin. Something Old is meant to link back to the bride’s family, Something New is for good luck in the bride’s future, Something Borrowed is to show support of friends and family, Something Blue is a symbol of faithfulness, purity and loyalty and a Silver Sixpence in the bride’s shoe represents wealth and financial security. I love the stories and ideas behind each bride’s choices – so whether you were married 10 years ago, 3 months ago or your nuptials are pending let us know if this tradition was/is a part of your wedding and what you did/plan to do.
