Wedding Superstitions – Something Blue

Today is Wedding day #26 – Yes I have been posting wedding facts , tips , links and doodles for 26 days. Only 4 more days of June Weddings -hope you had fun and maybe learned something new.  Something Old,New, Borrowed and Blue  Martha Stewart Weddings We’ve all heard this rhyme used when someone gets married, but what does it mean? Wearing “something old” represents the bride’s past, while the “something new” symbolizes the couple’s happy future.

While the eggs used for pocking are boiled, it is understood that you should only use chicken eggs. […]
