Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue Tradition
This tradition is popular in many cultures.
Something Old symbolizes the recognition of the constancy and continuity of the past, which in turn offers comfort.
Something New (usually the bridal gown), suggests a wonderfully new and bright future together for the couple.
Something Borrowed (something Borrowed from a happily married friend or kin, such as a handkerchief, or piece of jewelry) signifies the hope that the new couple would also be blessed with a blissful and joyous life together.
Something blue is often the Bride’s garter or a blue bead on the garter, to keep the evil eye away from the couple.
The tradition has been passed down from many generations and still continuous to be a part of many weddings today!
