No doubt you have heard about the old tradition of having “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe” But where does it come from? After a little bit of research I discovered that it comes from an old english rhyme and is believed to bring the bride good luck on her wedding day.
Today I wanted to share a few different ideas on how you could include this tradition on your wedding. So here are a few ideas and some examples from my gorgeous brides.
This one is usually the most special out of all of the items and usually has a great story as to who it belonged to and is usually something really heartfelt.
A beautiful idea is including family members who have passed in a little photo locket wrapped around the bouquet.
Again, this one is usually pretty easy as generally everything else is brand new for the day – dress, jewellery, perfume and shoes!
Another item that generally has a story behind it is the something borrowed. Many brides borrow something from their mother or grand mother to include on their wedding day.
The something blue is generally one of the most fun items to include on your wedding day… It could be your lingerie, your shoes, your garter, your jewels, your flowers, your bridesmaids, shoe decals on the bottom of your shoe or even you could sew the date in blue thread in the lining of your dress!
