This old rhyme is often the common thread amongst traditional weddings. Though each bride chooses her 'something's' in a unique and special way, it's often the unique touches that personalize the big day! So where did the saying come from, a

Something Old stands as a symbolize of continuity with the brides family even after she gets married. Something New is a symbol of optimism and hope for the bride's new life to come. The Something Borrowed is meant to bring good luck, a wish that another couples good fortune rubs off onto the new family to be. And, the Something Blue is a symbol of love and everlasting fidelity.
