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.

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 purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
