Giving the pride something blue

According to the old English rhyme, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and sixpence in your shoe”, there is a certain guide to what the bride should have before becoming a wife: one of these items to remind her of her past, focus on her future, and help her cherish her loved ones.

However, why the color blue? It is said that it represents purity, love, and fidelity. Also, it’s meant to ward off the Evil Eye, which is a curse that could make the bride infertile.

In the old English tradition, the sixpence was an English coin that was meant to symbolize financial prosperity for the couple.
