11 Jul Old, new, borrowed, blue: Wedding Traditions and Trends

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue…

This traditional rhyme has been recited at weddings near and far. It outlines four objects that a bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries on her big day that will bring good luck to her marriage and the wedding itself. Whether it is in jewelry, attire or accessories, see how brides in 2016 have been displaying these good luck charms.

Something Old

Something Borrowed

 A veil from a relative of the bride or a best friend is the perfect “something borrowed.” It symbolizes that marriage doesn’t mean the end of old relationships.
