How much do you buy into this wedding superstition ?
The superstition that a bride should have with her something old, new, borrowed, and blue, plus a silver sixpence, comes to us from Victorian times. The bride would wear "something old" to symbolize her past, and "something new" to symbolizes her future with her partner. The "something borrowed" is supposed to be borrowed from someone who is happily married in order to absorb some of their good luck, and "something blue" was to represent fidelity. The sixpence in her shoe would help ensure good fortune in the marriage.
Will you have something old, new, borrowed, and blue with you on your wedding day? Will you have a sixpence? Are you hoping they will bring you luck and fortune, or are you doing it for another reason?
