Wedding ceremonies have been around since the dawn of time and with such a long-standing tradition comes dozens of good luck charms and omens passed down through the generations. The Victorian rhyme “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe” is still around today to bring luck to the bride.
Stuck on what you want to include in your wedding for this age-old tradition? We’ve compiled a list of some great items that fit into each category.
The something old traditionally represents the bride’s family and the past. It’s a great way for a bride today to pay homage to where she came from. Anything that predates the relationship could be used, but here are just a few ideas:
Odds are you’re going to have a lot of new things for your wedding. There’s a good chance you haven’t had that dress hanging out in your closet for years. But here are some ideas for things specifically dedicated to be your something new:
Your something borrowed is easily the most sentimental item of the four. It is something lent from one bride to another to represent happiness.
The color blue is meant to symbolize fidelity, purity, and love. While the origins are romantic, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with your “something blue.”
The sixpence symbolizes good fortune, and while many brides leave this out, some still like to include it.
Whatever you choose for your something old, new, borrowed and blue, this is your time to shine. You can be as creative or as traditional as you see fit. Plus, you have great options to double down and use one item for two or more of the categories.
