Something Blue


It’s a phrase we’ve all heard many times before, but why do we follow it?

The phrase comes from an Old English Folklore originating in 1898 and has since taken on many different variations and versions. The most common version that we hear in today’s wedding world is “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” with each of the factors symbolizing something specific.
