We all know the saying a mantra we have used to brides for generations:
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue
But where does it come from and what does it mean?
The origins are uncertain but probably grew us as folklore, in the villages of England but there is plenty of meaning and symbolism.
- The Wearing of Something Old, Represents the Brides Past
- The Wearing of Something New, Symbolizes the couples future
- The Something Borrowed, is symbolic of borrowing from someone already happily married to pass on their good fortune.
- The Something Blue, is to Symbolize Fidelity and Love.
In the 21st Century lets ditch the Blue Garter for our beautiful blue delphinium Confetti Petals, then your guests can shower you with a symbol of Fidelity of Love once you have said your ” I Do’s”
