Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue.. Sixpence in her shoe???

Many times the “frantic” mother of the bride stresses over what to get their daughter for this very popular wedding tradition: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. According to the Feminist Bride online source the traditions are outlined as such:

Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom. Sixpences are silver coins used in the 17th-20th century in both England and Maryland.

Share these meanings with mother of the bride’s, father of the bride’s and/or even close family members to help ease their nerves as they prepare these intimate gifts for the bride!
