Accessory Ideas for Your Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

We’ve all heard the saying, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”.

This tradition is from an old rhyme and all of the items pose as a good luck charm. Typically these items are from your mother, sister, or other close relatives or friends as they wish you well on the beginning of your marriage. If this old tradition is something you’d like to do for your wedding, I’ve shared a few ways you can pick your good luck charms.

Something Old

Something old is great for traditions and family heirlooms! This could be something like your grandmother’s pearl necklace or hair clip. Another way to incorporate something old and something new together, is to purchase a new locket and put photos of loved ones who have passed away inside. You can wear the locket as a necklace or attach it to your bouquet.

Something New

This can be a gift from the groom or someone in your family, or just a little splurge for yourself! A piece of jewellery, like earrings or a necklace, that works perfectly with your wedding gown works great for your something new.

Something Borrowed

Something borrowed is a great representation of the community that surrounds you on your wedding day and in your new marriage you’re starting. Borrow something that you’ve admired and loved from a family member or best friend. This could be shoes, jewellery, or even a veil.

Something Blue

This one is fairly easy. It could be your initials and wedding date embroidered into the lining of your wedding dress, incorporating blue flowers in your bouquet, or maybe even your shoes themselves are blue.  Other great options are blue nail polish or even sapphire jewellery.

With all of these suggestions, what are (or were) your something borrowed and something blue?

    I don’t think I had anything in the old, new, borrowed, blue category. I guess my dress was new so that counts!!
