We've all heard the old English rhyme something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. But you may not have known the meaning behind the wedding saying. Well, it's pretty much a list of items that are believed to bring the couple happiness throughout their marriage—kind of like a good luck charm.
The old, new, and borrowed categories are pretty general, so you could basically pick anything to represent each must-have. But choosing something blue isn't so easy, especially since it's the item that the bride usually carries or wears on the big day. Luckily, there are several ways for brides to add the color to their look. Cobalt blue undergarments can be hidden underneath her gown, or the bride could skip the traditional blush manicure for a pastel paint job. The options are endless.
