We’re all familiar with the bridal tradition of wearing “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” but what does it represent?
The Olde English rhyme outlines four good luck charms the bride carries on her the day of the wedding to bring different fortunes. Something Old represents continuity in marriage, something new is for a bright future, something borrowed is sharing in the happiness from another married couple, and last but not least, the blue symbolizes love and fidelity.
For the brides interested in keeping this tradition alive on her wedding day, we came up with 5 cute ways to seamlessly incorporate “Something Blue” into your ensemble.
