Very Superstitious.

Today’s post we are going to be discussing all things superstitious.

This saying is based on an Old English rhyme that dates back to 19th-century. It says that a bride should have on her wedding day: “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Did you know the Brides something borrowed should be something from a happily married woman? in the hopes that their happy marriage rubs off on the newly married couple. Also that is not the end to the rhyme, it ends with a sixpence in your shoe. In the 19th century the brides dad would put a sixpence in the brides shoe for good luck and prosperity. (My colleagues from Anne Furbank actually brought me a sixpence coin for my wedding which I tied to my bouquet.)

Another well known superstition is rain on your wedding day is meant to be good luck, this is because it symbolizes fertility and cleaning, starting your marriage on a clean slate.
