Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

It's fun reading up stuff related to wedding. First, it's about choosing a month to get married.

Today, it's about an evergreen bridal rhyme, "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue".

Something Old

- Symbolizes continuity with the bride's family and the past.

- Wear a piece of jewelry your parents gave you as a little girl.
- Clip an old brooch to your bouquet.
- Wrap an old strand of pearls around or in your bouquet.
- Use an old piece of fabric to wrap your bouquet.

Something New

- Symbolizes optimism and hope for the bride's new life ahead.

Something Borrowed

- It's usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride.
- The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family.
- The difference between something old and something borrowed is that the something borrowed has to be given back.

Something Blue

- Blue is believed to symbolize fidelity and faithfulness. Today, many brides follow the cliché for good luck.
- Here are a few suggestions to include something blue:

Wedding accessories. E.g. a tiny blue bow, undergarments with blue detailing, blue jewelry, headpieces, or shoes. This is a great way to add color to an all-white ensemble.

Wedding gown. E.g. a small blue flower, or a blue trimmed train on a traditional white or ivory wedding gowns. It's up to the bride to choose the shade of blue that best coordinates with her wedding theme.

Wedding flowers. E.g. include blue flowers in bouquet arrangement, or add blue details such as a blue ribbon wrapped around the stems, or wear a small blue flower in your hair.

As for me, I'd love a pair of blue bridal shoes. ;)
