When it comes to weddings, we all know the saying something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. But what you may not know are the meanings behind each of these items – items that are believed to bring you good luck on your wedding day.
Tradition states that something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness and something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity. Luckily, tradition doesn’t lay any ground rules to what these items have to be, and thanks to ETSY the options are endless!
