Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
A silver sixpence in her shoe
This old good luck rhyme always comes to mind at this time of the year. Back in Victorian times everything had a "meaning" ... flowers, gems, calling cards and desserts. In this case, something old connects the bride to her family's past. Something new forecasts the bride's future happiness. Something borrowed conveys the hope of someone else's happiness being transferred to the newly married couple. Something blue represents purity. And in the last verse, usually forgotten, the sixpence represents financial security and future wealth.
