1. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
The something old is meant to be a symbol of the bride’s “old” family, her past and her traditions.
The something new is a symbol for the bride’s new life with her husband.
The something borrowed is intended to be borrowed from a married woman who has experienced a happy marriage.
The something blue is a symbol for purity, love, and faithfulness.
The sixpence? Well that was intended to represent future prosperity and wealth in the marriage. If you can get your hands on a sixpence, it's not too late to bring this part of the tradition back!
