“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
The tradition for the bride to add these 4 objects to her wedding attire or carries them with her on her Wedding day comes from this Old English rhyme. Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity.
