‘Something Old, Something New; Something Borrowed…….’

  • Posted on August 15, 2011 at 10:11 pm

It is traditional in England (and the Commonwealth) for the bride to carry ‘something old, something new; something borrowed, something blue, and a silver shilling in her shoe’.

Have you ever wondered what the symbolic meaning to this was?

These are symbols of the bride’s old and new life – the past and the future. The colour blue is associated with the Virgin Mary, with purity and fidelity. The borrowed item should come from someone who has been happy and it will them bring good luck. The silver coin is for the couple’s future prosperity.
