Something Blue

While was researching for our wedding, I always came by this “Something Blue” from the overseas wedding blog. So it’s only when I further researched that I found out that it was a tradition overseas to have the following:

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

Upon googling, you will find out that each item is supposed to bring good luck to the bride and having all of the above-mentioned items signifies a happy marriage.

Something old symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past.
Something new means optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead.
Something borrowed is usually an item borrowed from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride.
Something blue signifies love, modesty and fidelity as blue in the past has been associated with purity.

I’m so tempted to have these interesting little items for my wedding though it’s not our tradition to do it but isn’t it fun to have these little items in your wedding to make it meaningful? 🙂

In consideration that our wedding theme is going Blue and White, I’m so wanting to have blue heels to match my wedding gown! 🙂

    1. That’s so special! Always think this Western culture is really special.
      Sadly this culture is not practiced in Asia. 🙂

      So you have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue for your wedding also? 🙂
