We have all heard the old adage:
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue …
But few of us have heard the last line which goes:
…And a silver sixpence in your shoe.
Each phrase is traditionally represented by an item of clothing or jewelry. ‘Something old‘ represents the brides past, ‘something new’ represents the brides future, ‘something borrowed’ is to remind the bride of all the supports from family and friends, ‘something blue’ stands as a sign of the brides faithfulness. And what does the ‘silver sixpence’ represent? This represents a wish for the couples prosperity!
Incorporate some sweet traditions into your wedding. Have fun and enjoy your special day!
