Something Old, Something New

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

Most everyone is familiar with this poem, but when the stress of wedding day comes around one might be hard pressed to remember exactly how it goes.  Even more so the poem is typically recited without the final line regarding the sixpence.  Coming from a British background the poem is typically recited here in the States without the last line.  I mean, how many really have a sixpence lying around to toss in their shoe.

Each item has a specific representation and more detail can be found at this link.

  1. You should make sure that you photograph each item in the poem at each wedding. And have a couple of sixpences to toss in shoes when the Bride is at fault, having not done her research on the poem/tradition.

    Just a suggestion. 🙂
