Back in the day, having “something old” meant something entirely different. Way back when, something old was the tradition for brides to wear to ward off the evil eye, thus blocking infertility.
In modern day terms, “something old” is now a sentimental piece of something handed down to the bride like an heirloom before the ceremony representing continuity.
As you walk into a new season in life together, the meaning of “something new” can be a gift from someone or a treat yourself to something moment.
Nowadays, thankfully it is enough to borrow something of sentimental value such as a piece of jewelry or something special to tuck into your bouquet.
Most garter’s have a touch of blue on it; however, you may incorporate blue as a subtle touch in flowers, or a ribbon tucked away somewhere.
Traditions and superstitions, many play along for the fun of it and some just aren’t taking chances.
Something old, something new,
And a sixpence in her shoe.
