Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and a Sixpence in your Shoe……

Many brides ask me the meaning behind the poem so I thought I would share it with you……

Something old represents continuity of family and can be an item an older family member had at their wedding…
something new offers optimism for the future of the couple
something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness and should be an item that belongs to someone with a positive outlook on life
something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity between the bride and groom as they enter into a monogamous, loving relationship
a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity throughout the marriage(brides are placing the coins on the bottom of their shoes)

Very simply….They all signify a special good luck wish for both the Bride and Groom
