Red, White, & Something Blue - Tips for Gathering Your Traditional Wedding Items

If you're a bride-to-be, many people may have already asked you what your old, new, borrowed, and blue items are. While this is a traditional wedding custom in England, many brides all over the world participate in this tradition. If you are looking for some unique ways to gather these pieces, our Colorado Springs wedding venue is here to help! Once you get your traditional items together, you're ready to book your wedding at The Historic Pinecrest.

Something Old

This tradition stands for continuity. An older object being passed on to a bride on her big day is a way to show support and hope for the future, from something that has stood the test of time. A grandmother's ring, grandfather's handkerchief, or other family heirlooms are great ways to incorporate this into your big day.

Something New

A new item represents optimism for the future. Investing in an item for your big day shows that you believe in the marriage you are about to enter into and shows you are willing to invest in your future as a happy couple, together. Many brides will choose their wedding dress, shoe, a piece of jewelry, or other item to represent their "new" piece.

Something Borrowed

Borrowed happiness is what something borrowed stands for. This is one of the biggest days of your life and you should be happy. A borrowed item can come from someone who believes in your future with your new spouse. You can borrow a number of items from friends and family to accessorize with on your big day. Whether it's a friend's necklace or mother's shoes, this is a fun way to honor someone you care deeply about, during your big day.

Something Blue

A blue item represents purity, love, and fidelity. This is a great way to show that you stand behind the matrimony you are getting ready to enter into. If blue is one of your wedding colors, you can easily incorporate this color into your attire the day of. Whether you have a blue pin in your hair, blue shoes, or garter in a blue tone, you can either conceal of show off your blue item!

Tips for Gathering These Items

Recruit your friends and family to get all of your traditional items gathered. Many of them will offer to provide a certain piece for your big day. It is an honor to incorporate family members and close friends into your something old, new, borrowed, and blue pieces.
