Something New for Something Blue

Every bride knows the rhyme,

Something old,

Something new,

Something borrowed,

Something blue.


The saying, taken from an old English poem, has become a wedding custom as a way to wish the bride good luck on her big day. Each verse carries its own meaning. Something old represents continuity. Something new reflects optimism for the future. Something borrowed is for borrowed happiness and something blue is purity, love and fidelity.

A common practice for “something blue” is for the bride to wear a garter with a blue accent like a ribbon or charm. While weddings celebrate tradition, we love when brides add their own twists! Here are some of our favorite new takes on “something blue”!
