Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Ever since you were a little girl dreaming about your fairy tale wedding. You’ve probably repeated those words about old and new, something borrowed and something blue, and of course, that silly sixpence in your shoe a million times. Who on earth even knows what a sixpence is, right? Well, here’s a quick breakdown of what all of those things really mean and a few tips on each of them:

Something Old

This one stands for continuity, i.e. your continuing life together.

Something New

It stands for optimism regarding the future of you and your betrothed.

Something Borrowed

That’s a symbol for the happiness that you are borrowing.

Something Blue

This signifies love, purity, and fidelity. In some cases, it is combined with the something borrowed like when your sister loans you her blue garter for your wedding day.

Put A Sixpence in Your Shoe

Signifies a wish for your prosperity and good fortune.

Now, even if you’re not even the tiniest bit superstitious, this cute little Victorian rhyme is probably stuck securely in your mind, causing you to want to hedge your bet on this all-important day. After all, in this day and age, ensuring that you’ll live happily ever after is of primary importance to every bride and may even seem elusive to some. You’ve ignored the advice of some of those “single forever together” type friends who tell you never to get married, and you’ve eschewed all that garbage online about how many marriages end in divorce. After all, you’ve been preparing yourself for this day since childhood, and everything just has to be perfect.

You have the perfect dress, the one you’ve always dreamed about. You have the perfect man and, of course, the perfect wedding venue.
