Old, New, Borrowed, & Blue

9 Aug

Something Old, Something New,
Something Borrowed, Something Blue…

There is an Old English rhyme that goes “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”. Over the years, it evolved into a celebrated wedding tradition that represents four objects the bride carries with her or adds to her wedding attire on the big day. The little tokens act as a bride’s good luck charms and are usually provided by family members and close friends (or even yourself!) as a last minute detail.

Now let me introduce to you the meanings of these lucky symbols!

Something Old: Continuity
Something New: Optimism for the Future
Something Borrowed: Borrowed Happiness
Something Blue: Purity, Love, & Fidelity
