When it comes to weddings, almost everyone has heard the expression “…something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…”, but did you ever wonder where the tradition came from?
According to some sources, the expression originated in England in the late Victorian era, and the complete rhyme includes the final phrase “…and a silver sixpence in her shoe”. This rhyme is meant to indicate a collection of lucky tokens, or good luck charms, a bride should bring to her wedding. If she does, it will mean a lasting, happy marriage.
