Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Have you always wondered why you are running around trying to find these items for your wedding day? The saying comes from and old English rhyme that ended with " and a sixpence in your shoe". The tradition behind this famous little saying is 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, although this remains 
largely a British custom.

Something Old can be anything from a Grandmothers brooch to lace from a great Aunt's wedding dress. The easiest place to put them is your bouquet!
Your new wedding dress is the stress free way of choosing your Something new.
Have you had your eye on something from your future Mother-in-law or Grandmother? Ask to borrow it for your wedding day!

Something Blue is my favorite and it is because you can have the most fun with it! From blue nail polish to the blue lining in Christian Louboutin shoes you can show your personality through this brilliant color!

If you want to keep with the full old English saying then add a six pence to your shoe, Jennifer Lauren Bijoux creates custom sixpences for a modern twist on the old tradition!
