Something Old, Something New

We’ve all heard the saying “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”, but do you wonder how you can fulfill each of these? I know I did.


Something Old – Represents the past and the history of the families coming together.
IDEA: An item from a parent, grandparent, great aunt, or other older relative. 

Something New – Represents the future of the couple and the bright, positive, new hope. 
IDEA: Your dress, shoes, veil, pick something!  This is usually the easiest, since a lot of couples purchase new clothing items for their big day!

Something Borrowed – Good Luck and Good Fortune from friends and family being shared with the newly married couple. 
IDEA: Any item that you give back. I once loaned a bride $5 for the day!

Something Blue – The color blue stands for Love, Purity, and Fidelity.  All things new couples want as part of their lives together.  IDEA: Depending on your color theme, finding a piece of blue can be tough.  I think one of the fun ways is to have blue on your garter or as part of your dress.
