Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe
The collection of items that is considered lucky for a bride to take to her wedding.
The full version of the rhyme is said to be:
Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
This tradition comes from an Old English rhyme (“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”), and the four objects that the bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries with her on the big day are just good luck charms.
Something old: Symbolizes continuity
Something new: Symbolizes optimism for the future
Something borrowed: Symbolizes Happiness
Something Blue: Stands for purity, love, & fidelity
A Sixpence in your shoe: A wish for good fortune & prosperity
