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

According to custom, something old represents continuity; something new stands for looking forward to 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.


As the wedding season is approaching, we have put together a selection for vintage inspired summer weddings.
