- Something old – represents the bond to the bride’s family and her old life
- Something new – represents the couple’s new life together and their future hope for happiness, prosperity and success
- Something borrowed – from a happily married woman is meant to impart similar happiness to the bride
- Something blue – represents fidelity and constancy
Sure…. these are just old Victorian superstitions… but who wants to take the chance!?
I already have the something “borrowed.” Skye is lending me her diamond & pearl necklace that I gave her as a gift for her high school graduation (glad I got her a really pretty one!). And Brian gave me a pair of diamond & pearl earrings that that go with Skye’s necklace (guess I know what Skye’s “borrowed” will be someday!)
I am still not sure about the “old” or the “blue.”
