Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

Recommended Posts

I really have not a clue but my FI's grandfather died and I would like to find out if he has rosary beads that I could borrow to wear around my hand with my boquet. Other than that not a clue. I mean what do people get as blue?

Something Old = a pair of diamond studs earrings that Cain got me for our first anniv.

 

Something New = endless possibilities, but I guess dress

 

Something Blue = I purchased a blue starfish bouquet jewel

 

Something borrowed = still trying to figure this one out..

I'm not really that superstitious (sp?) or traditional, but I probably will, I just don't know what yet, maybe ...

 

 

Something Old = my necklace I wear daily - it was my grandma's 25th wedding anniversary present from my grandpa

 

Something New = ditto - could be many things, like the dress

 

Something Blue = I am thinking of having blueish jewelry or "bling" on my shoes

 

Something borrowed = TBD

I like the blue flip flops idea. Does it have to be true blue? Like American flag blue? Or could I get away with doing baby blue or turqoise?

How old is old? My Grandma gave me a set of pearls for my high school graduation, so I was thinking about wearing those, maybe I can borrow my mom's pearl earings to wear. I might have my new initials embroidered inside of my dress in blue, and I am hoping my fiance will get me the eternity band I have been wanting for my something new, if not then I guess my dress can count as something new.

here is what i found

 

Something old, new, borrowed and blue...

 

The full wording of this popular bridal attire rhyme, which dates back to the Victorian times is 'something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in your shoe.' Something old refers to wearing something that represents a link with the bride's family and her old life. Usually, the bride wears a piece of family jewellery or maybe her mother's or grandmother's wedding dress.

 

Wearing something new represents good fortune and success in the bride's new life. The bride's wedding dress is usually chosen, if purchased new, but it can be any other new item of the bride's wedding attire.

 

Wearing something borrowed, which has already been worn by a happy bride at her wedding, is meant to bring good luck to the marriage. Something borrowed could be an item of bridal clothing, a handkerchief or an item of jewellery.

 

Wearing something blue dates back to biblical times when the colour blue was considered to represent purity and fidelity. Over time this has evolved from wearing a blue clothing to wearing a blue band around the bottom of the bride's dress and to modern times where the bride wears a blue or blue-trimmed garter.

 

...and a silver sixpence in your shoe

Placing a silver sixpence in the bride's left shoe is a symbol of wealth. This is not just to bring the bride financial wealth but also a wealth of happiness and joy throughout her married life.

Hmm, for the ceremony I was going to go barefoot and then I'm wearing stapless sandles for dinner. How the H*ll are you suppose to put a "sixpence" in your shoe? Tape ithuh.gif lol

Thanks for the info Sherri. I guess I can't do the rosaries then since the borrowed is supposed to be borrowed from a bride and the old is supposed to be something from the bride's family. hmmm...

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
