Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue is a good luck saying that originated during the Victorian times. That wedding tradition is still going strong. But not many brides know the meaning behind the popular saying.


Something old

Wearing something old is a symbol of connection between the bride and her family’s past. To keep up this tradition, wear an antique jewellery, maybe a pair of earrings or an old locket with photos of your mum or grandmother. If you can’t get a piece of jewellery, a handkerchief, ring or necklace belonging to one of them should do. If your mum or grandmother are not around, try to get something old from another relative.

Something New

This signifies hope for a successful future between husband and wife. Something new represents a new life for the newly married couple. A wonderful life that they hope will last forever. The new item could be your wedding dress, wedding flowers, wedding rings or anything else bought for the wedding.

Something borrowed

This means the bride will have her friends and family with her on her wedding day. Plus, they’ll be there to support her in the future if she needs help. But, the bride has to borrow something from a happily married friend or family member. It’s a symbol of the married woman transferring some of her happiness to the new bride. Whatever is borrowed, must be returned after the wedding. So, borrow something that your friend treasures or wears often, like a necklace. Wearing it on your wedding day will remind you of the close bond between both of you.

Something blue

Something blue dates back to ancient times and represents purity, loyalty and faithfulness. Brides wore blue garters to signify love, fidelity and modesty. But you can wear any item of blue you choose. Dionne Smith wrote an article about something blue for her wedding day. You can read it by clicking this link.
