Wedding Traditions: Meaning of "Something Old, Something New..."?
Posted: Mar 12, 2013 10:48 PM
This tradition comes from an Old English rhyme ("Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe"), and the four objects that the bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries with her on the big day are just good luck charms. Don't stress too much about them -- they are the little tokens of love your mother, sister, other relatives, and attendants will give you at the eleventh hour (although you can give them to yourself, too). Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom.

Well for me, Traditional Wedding, is something like planning your wedding on a tight budget and just inviting a few of your relatives. Well, of course Your Mom and Dad.
On the other hand, Modern Wedding has something to do with careful planning, and choosing the right venue, and people who is attending. It's more likely to be expensive in a way that it would be Your most unforgettable moment. Technology too, plays a big part in Modern Wedding arrangements nowadays.
