A Poem to Bring Luck on Your Wedding Day

A Poem to Bring Luck on Your Wedding Day

The "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" wedding day poem is a traditional rhyme that originated in England and is often recited by brides as they prepare for their wedding day. The rhyme is intended to bring good luck to the bride on her special day.

The full rhyme is:

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, And a sixpence in her shoe."

Each item in the rhyme represents a different type of good luck for the bride:

  • Something old represents continuity with the past and the bride's family history.
  • Something new represents good luck and success in the bride's new life.
  • Something borrowed is typically an item borrowed from a happily married friend or family member, to bring the bride good luck in her own marriage.
  • Something blue represents purity, love, and fidelity.
  • The sixpence in her shoe is a wish for wealth and financial stability for the couple.

    While the rhyme is not strictly followed by all brides, many incorporate it into their wedding day preparations as a way to honor tradition and add a bit of fun to the day.
