Something Borrowed Something Blue
Something Old, Something New, Wedding Tradition
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
This superstition of the Bride wearing something that fits each of these four categories originated in Europe to ward off evil spirits.
Something Old: Symbolized the sense of continuity while making the transition from a single person to that of a married couple.
Something New: Symbolized that marriage represented a transition to adulthood.
Something Borrowed: Symbolizes the popular belief that by borrowing something from a happily married couple, good fortune would follow the newlyweds.
Something Blue: In ancient Israel, blue was the border color of the Bride’s dress symbolizing purity, constancy and fidelity.
Brian and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being such a special part of our wedding day! Thank you for helping us start this chapter of our lives with such inspiring and caring words. So many people have told us since the wedding how much they enjoyed our ceremony as well. We got a lot of wonderful comments about how comforting your words and voice were! We were glad to hear that they enjoyed you for the same reasons Brian and I did! We were glad to hear that our guests were touched as much as were by the ceremony! Thank you again! Brian & Amanda Gibson
