Have you ever wondered where the saying of the bride wearing, “something blue” derived from?

The complete phrase is:
Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.


This phrase originated back in Britain during the Victorian era, each item in this poem represents a good-luck token for the bride. As for the colorful item,
blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. In ancient Rome, brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. Christianity has long dressed the Virgin Mary in blue, so purity was associated with the color. Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, "Marry in blue, lover be true."
