Something old, something new…(and a competition too!)


Category : Competitions

…..something borrowed, something blue. You probably know the traditional rhyme but did you know the final line that completes it?

…and a silver sixpence in her shoe.

This rhyme goes all the way back to Victorian times and the final line was a tradition that began with the bridegroom placing a sixpence in his bride’s shoe to represent financial security and future wealth.

The rest of the rhyme can be interpreted in many ways but the most popular meanings are;

  • something old represents continuity, the past continuing into the future;
  • something new, the marriage representing the couple’s future together;
  • something borrowed meaning borrowed happiness;
  • something blue represents the bride and grooms commitment, fidelity and love.

As a bride, there are many options for items to complete your rhyme, and again, there are a few traditions relating to the items that normally get chosen. Something old could be a vintage piece of jewellery, perhaps a string of pearls belonging to your grandmother or a vintage brooch.

Something new is perhaps the easiest and for most brides this is their wedding dress or possibly some wedding jewellery bought either by you or for you to wear on your big day.

Something borrowed again could be your jewellery or perhaps you could combine this with the something blue and perhaps borrow a blue garter from a married friend.

Your something blue options could range from a tiny blue crystal incorporated into your jewellery, a charm to clip onto your garter, your new initials sewen into the underside of your dress or a blue flower incorporated into your wedding bouquet or perhaps even a new blue trimmed set of undies for the wedding night…..
