Something old....Something New...

If I had a six pence for everytime I was asked what these thngs signify I'd be rich (how much is a six pence worth anyway?) So here is just one example of what each of the "somethings" is meant to mean. I think it will satisfy any of your queries.
And why something blue, anyway?

Something Old... Signifies a sense of continuity and tradition. It represents the link to the bride's old life and her family. Many brides would wear their mother's wedding gown or family jewelry.

Something New... Signifies hope for the future. The bridal gown can be used here, if it's purchased new - or any other new item purchased as part of the bridal attire.

Something Borrowed... You're supposed to borrow something for a friend who is happily married. Their happiness will wear off on you and bring you happiness too! Brides can borrow jewelry or a special handkerchief from a family member or close friend.

Something Blue...Signifies fidelity, purity, and love. This is why you see so many garters with blue ribbon or detailing!

A Silver Sixpence in your Shoe... Signifies wealth, both financially and a wealth of happiness and joy.

Now you know!
