There are many wedding traditions, but “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” has become the most popular and recognized wedding tradition across the U.S. Typically, a bride’s family member gifts an item representing each part of the tradition, but the bride can do it herself, too.
We’re breaking down each part of the tradition in blog posts. Today, we’re talking about “something old.”
Something old is a symbol of the bride’s connection to her family and where she comes from. It also represents continuity. Examples include a piece of lace from the bride’s grandmother’s wedding dress, a handkerchief from the bride’s mother around the bouquet, a vintage accessory, such as a stole for a winter wedding, or anything from a family member that means a lot to the bride!
