I'm sure you've heard.. 'something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.... and a six pence in your shoe" WTH is this tradition about anyway? Dating back to the Victorian age there was a rhyme for ladies to uphold traditions on their wedding day.
Let's break it down. Something old and something new originally were based on the ritual of old lives and traditions joining and creating something beautiful and new. The something borrowed and something blue derives from borrowing something from a seemingly happily married woman. Perhaps the happiness will transfer over?And the blue? The blue represents “fidelity and love’s purity,” according to Susan Waggoner, a wedding historian.
No matter what you decide, traditional or modern, make it your own! I love brides that spend time on the details of their wedding and making everything count according to wedding traditions just as much as I love brides that aren't into traditions and details, laid back and just want to enjoy their big day! It's completely up to you, no right or wrong way to do it.
This is my favorite about the modern wedding industry. Take your big day and make it your own! No rules.
