The custom of wearing something blue comes from an ancient English tradition that is based on a phrase dating back to the Victorian era:
Something old, something new.
Something borrowed, something blue.
And a silver sixpence in your shoe.
This rhyme has been respected for decades, traveling around the world, and no bride arrives at the altar without respecting this tradition, getting a little bit out of the way, a little to overcome these 5 elements loaded with meaning and magic. Something old says that family ties and friends with friends do not break, but they only turn to adapt to a new common life. Something new symbolizes optimism and confidence in the future. Something borrowed represents the belief that happiness can be attracted by using something borrowed from a married couple and a coin in the shoe as a symbol of prosperity and economic security for the new family. The custom of wearing something blue was born in ancient Israel, where brides wore a blue band symbolizing purity, love, and fidelity. Today, practice has been limited to wearing something blue, but still means high fidelity and love. There are many ways to integrate blue color on the wedding day, wearing lingerie or colored garter, here are some tips from which to embark on.
