The old saying, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and a Silver Sixpence in Her Shoe” dates back to the victorian times. I found the meaning behind the saying and I thought this would be great to know as a bride.
Something Old represents the connection/lineage with the bride’s family and their past. Most brides chose to wear jewelry or an item of importance from their mother or grandmother. I chose to wear my mother’s 35 year old veil for my wedding with some modern updates.
Something New represents good fortune and success in the bride’s new life. The wedding gown will usually suffice as the something new.
Something Borrowed is to represent the support and love that all of her family and friends will give throughout her lifetime The borrowed could be as simple as a scarf or as grand as some diamond earrings.
Something Blue is the symbol of faithfulness and loyalty. Often the blue item used to be a garter or ribbion hidden somewhere, but now they have decals and other cool items that come in blue for this exact reason.
Lastly, a silver sixpence in her shoe is for the wish of wealth.
