Something old Something new
Something borrowed Something blue
We’ve all heard this rhyme used when someone gets married, but what does it mean?
Wearing “something old” represents the bride’s past, while the “something new” symbolises the couple’s happy future.
The bride is supposed to get her “something
borrowed” from someone who is happily married in the hope that some of that person’s good fortune rubs off on her. “Something blue” denotes fidelity and love.
