Fab Finds

“Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

All things for good luck for a bride on her wedding day to bring on a happy marriage.

But what’s the meaning behind each verse? From Wedding Bee:
[Something old – continuity with the bride’s family and the past
Something new – optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead
Something borrowed – an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride
Something blue – Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, “Marry in blue, lover be true.”]

We had previously shared about the “sixpence in her shoe“, and we’ve seen plenty of darling blue shoes too!

The new can be the wedding gown, or the veil. But both can also be borrowed, if they are handed down through generations.

Here are a couple of ideas that incorporates all these ideas into one neat package!

Of course, the old, new, borrowed, and blue typically takes on much a more sentimental value too! So get creative with family and friends for good luck on your wedding day!
