"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue..."

Have you ever wondered where this tradition started??  This tradition began on the Victorian Era.  There is an old saying that goes like this:    

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Each item in this saying is a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. 
"Something old" symbolizes continuity with the bride's family and the past.   

"Something new" means optimism and hope for the bride's new life ahead. 

"Something borrowed" is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family.

“ Something blue” As for the colorful item, blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. In ancient Rome, brides wore blue to represent purity, faithfulness, 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." 

And finally, "a silver sixpence in the bride's shoe" represents wealth and financial security. It may date back to a Scottish custom of a groom putting a silver coin under his foot for good luck. For optimum fortune, the sixpence should be in the left shoe. These days, a dime or a copper penny is sometimes substituted, and many companies sell keepsake sixpences for weddings.  Most brides don't follow this sixpence tradition, since there are some new customs to bring fortune to the newlyweds.

The History of the Bridal Bouquet

The custom of bouquets has its origin in ancient times. Women carried aromatic bunches of garlic, herbs and spices to ward off evil spirits.

In ancient Greece and Rome, the bride and groom wore a garland around their necks, symbolizing new life, hope and fertility. Traditional Celtic bouquets included ivy, thistle and heather. The garland was not made of flowers but of strong-smelling herbs and spices. The strong-smells were thought to have mystical powers and meant to keep away evil spirits.

When Queen Victoria married Prince Albert, the herbs and spices had been replaced by fresh flowers, especially marigolds. Edible flowers were still included in the bouquet. The bride would carry her arrangement as she walked down the aisle. The dill from the bride's bouquet (also known as the herb of lust), was consumed by the bride, the groom, and their wedding guests during the reception, as the herb was meant to increase sexual desire.

In Victorian times, flowers became the secret messengers of lovers; each flower having its own meaning.  It is believed that “the flower language” began in Turkey during the seventeenth century.  Lovers began using floral exchanges to convey messages. Thus bridal flowers were chosen with regard to their traditional significance.

Unfortunately many lovely flowers were assigned rather undeserved meanings. For many brides, these meanings continue to influence the types of flowers they included in their bouquets. These meanings were based on a science known as Florigraphy “the flower language”. Many flower lovers followed this language as it revealed underlying messages to sending and receiving flowers.

However in our modern times, brides pick their flowers on their lovely colors and shapes. Lovely blooms that suit their personality, bridal gown and their own unique style and taste.

Ing. Michelle Ramos & Ing. Javier Lopez

On a beautiful summer afternoon, the happy couple pronounced their vows on a intimate ceremony. The wedding location was the Trump Int. Golf Club of Puerto Rico.  Choosing The Yunque Rain forest, as a background, provided a cinematic setting  for their wedding ceremony.  An outdoor cocktail hour was followed by a dinner at the Paradise Bay Grill.   At the reception, the guests had a blast with the music of DJ Jordan and the Latin Brass band.  On the way out, the couple gave their guests a sweetened "thank you" as they handed in a Vanilla Bean cup cake as favor.
