Is your girlfriend getting married? Then you've probably heard of the beautiful usage: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. But what does this actually stand for? They are objects or accessories that you give to the bride and that symbolize something. Below I explain further.

Something old
Something old symbolizes life before the couple is married. It can refer to a beautiful memory between you and the bride from her childhood. Maybe a necklace with a medallion pendant with a photo of a special moment.


Something new
Something new symbolizes new life. You wish for happiness. The wedding ring also symbolizes this, but it can also be a special bracelet with earrings that match perfectly with her dress.

Something borrowed
Something borrowed symbolizes all the friends and family around the couple. So see what you can borrow her and what also looks nice. It can also be something functional. Something for her handbag, a lucky charm or…


Something blue
The color blue represents loyalty to each other. What can you give? There are enough beautiful blue jewelry in the shop to give you an idea.
