The traditional  bridal rhyme of wearing ‘something old, something new, something borrowed , something blue,and a [silver] sixpence in her shoe’ goes back to  Victorian times. The old item provides protection for the baby to come. The new item offers optimism for the future. The item borrowed from another happily married couple provides good luck. The colour blue is a sign of purity and fidelity. The sixpence— a British silver coin— is a symbol of prosperity or acts as a ward against evil done by frustrated suitors. Today modern brides find a blue satin garter works just as well.
