“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in her shoe”
“Something Borrowed” represents borrowed happiness. Some brides use a borrowed item from a long-time happily married couple for this item, but it can also be something borrowed from a friend or other relative who is symbolic of happiness. The bride could include flowers from the bride’s grandparents’ garden in floral arrangements or the bouquet or even borrow a flower girl from a friend’s wedding. Here are a few other ideas that brides typically “borrow” for their special day.
“Something Blue” represents love, good fortune, and fidelity. There are unlimited ways the color blue can be incorporated into the wedding day. Some brides will not want blue to be a dominant wedding color and so they will prefer to limit the blue color to less visible areas. The bride could wear a blue garter, use blue ribbon or flowers in the bride’s bouquet or on the groom’s boutonniere or any wear blue eye shadow. Here are a few more examples to add some color that means so much.
