Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue
You may wonder where the old saying ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed Something Blue’ comes from.
It refers to the old Good Luck Six Pence that brings prosperity; an old English Tradition ! So how do we make sure we’ve got it covered without changing up the wedding day style vision you may have?
There are so many ways; we’ve asked our customers recently what they have done to make sure their best of luck on their special day and here are some ideas they’ve come up with !
- Wear mum’s knickers … no no .. just joking ! however a top answer for Something Old was to wear a heirloom like a brooch on their shawl or a loved ring.
- Something New is too easy, though most brides-to-be we’re proud say they wore Something New that was a gift from their wedding party; like wrist charms.
- Something Borrowed always had some sentimental value like mums diamonds or one lovely bride mentioned simply a white umbrella !!
- And then there’s the Something Blue; most opted for their girls to wear blue tones as they felt blue was not only in style but also to increase their chances of luck. One lovely girl mentioned she had an embroidered label sewed into her wedding gown with her fathers’ special words – sewed with blue thread, how lovely.
Here are some ideas of how you can incorporate Something Blue within your wedding day.
