"Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a sixpence in her shoe."
Today's topic is Something New. Carrying, or wearing, something new on your wedding day is supposed to symbolize your bright new future and hope as you start a new chapter in your life. Traditionally, this item is a gift from either the groom, or the bride's parents.
There are several items that are used to symbolize something new - your dress, your shoes, etc. Here are some of my favorites:
1) Jewelry - a new piece of jewelry from your fiance or your parents easily fits the bill for this tradition. A necklace, earrings, bracelet, anklet, it doesn't really matter what it is as long as it's new. I'd recommend not going with a ring, though; the only new ring you really need on your wedding day is the one your new husband gives you!
