Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… How many times have you heard this since you got engaged!
It’s a British tradition that you need to have all of the above included on your big day, usually given by close friends or members of your family.
Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity.
It is a fun way of building some items into your wedding look. People are definitely going to ask you what items you’ve got on that are old, new, borrowed and blue, so you might as well have something to tell them!
