Something Old…

Posted on January 3rd, 2011 by admin

Every girl has heard the poem since childhood and wondered about her own wedding day; a day when she would need…

“something old, something new; something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

This little saying has been around so long that no one really knows who started the tradition, but it’s become part of the legend and lore of weddings. The reference to a “sixpence” doesn’t really help identify where and whence the saying came. A “sixpence” was a coin that was minted in the United Kingdom from 1551 until 1967. The verse and tradition traces back to England and many sources say it began sometime in the Victorian Era.

Not every bride will be able to carry or wear and item for each aspect of the poem, but when it comes to “something old” there’s really a chance to bring something special to your attire for the big day. “Old” can have many interpretations, but it’s consistent theme is: a link of one generation to the next. The bride’s mother, grandmother or a favorite aunt often contributes the cherished “old” item, making it an heirloom bridging past to future.

Some say this represents the desire to remain connected to the family the bride comes from, but it also represents the life being left behind. Another idea is that it symbolizes the tradition of the bride’s family values and the connection her family brings that is being passed down.

The most cherished gifts of past generations often include:

  • Jewelry.
  • Laces or fabric.
  • A sweetly scented handkerchief.
  • A hairpin or accessory.

Other popular items from another day might include a love letter written from father to mother, a picture of your parents in your purse, an old wedding photo from your family or a cherished antique mirror and brush set.

Whatever your family has, a tangible treasure to carry from your past home to the one where you will make your new life together can provide some comfort and warm feelings that help you feel more confident and truly cherished as you go forward into your happily ever after.

And at Mori Lee, we’ll help with the rest of the trimmings so that your “something old” is perfectly displayed and complemented by your wedding gown’s style and cut.
