The term “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe” comes from England!
This rhyme had its birth in England during the Victorian era. “Something old” represents the bride’s old life and the people from her past, like her family and friends. “Something new” represents the bride’s new life with her husband. “Something borrowed” should be lent to the bride by a member of the groom’s family and then returned to bring good luck. “Something blue” represents fertility and constancy. “And a silver sixpence in her shoe” represents financial security.
