“Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue...”

This wedding tradition began in the Victorian era. Each item represents a good luck token for the bride. The bride's marriage will be happy, if she carries all of them on her wedding day.

"Something Old" symbolizes continuity with the brides past.

"Something New" means optimism and hope for the brides new life ahead.

"Something Borrowed" is usually an item from a happily married person, whose good fortune in marriage will carry over.

"Something Blue" has been connected to weddings for centuries. In ancient Rome brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty,

"and silver sixpence in her shoe" represents wealth and financial security.
