Why something blue?
The tradition of incorporating "something blue" into weddings dates back centuries and is rooted in various cultures and superstitions. The famous rhyme "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe" emerged during the Victorian era, encapsulating the various symbols of luck and prosperity that a bride should incorporate into her wedding attire. During this era, the tradition of "something blue" became more widespread. Brides embraced the idea of incorporating blue into their attire as a symbol of luck, love, and fidelity. It was also believed that wearing something blue would bring prosperity and happiness to the marriage.
