Every bride has heard the adage “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. But do you know where that saying came from? The phrase is an Old English rhyme that lists 4 items that are promised to bring brides good luck on their wedding day.
Examples of Something Old: fabric from a relative’s gown, family heirlooms, or a vintage getaway car
Examples of Something New: jewelry, sentimental handkerchief, or matching tattoos
Examples of Something Borrowed: a first dance song, a veil, or cake flavor / recipe
Examples of Something Blue: nails, flowers, or groomsman suites
Regardless if you believe in superstitions or not, this rhythm is a fun tradition that can allow family members and friends to contribute to your wedding.
