Something Old, Something New…

“Something old
Something new
Something borrowed
Something blue
And a sixpence in her shoe

As an old tradition brides carry something old, new, borrowed, and blue as a token of good-luck. The “something old” represents the ties to the bride’s family and past. The new item shows optimism and hope for her future…

Ideas for “something old”:

Lace taken from a mother or grandmother’s wedding dress and wrapped around the bride’s bouquet

Take an old childhood pillow and wrap it in a new fabric for the ring bearer to carry
