Why is it something blue?
I always heard for a wedding the bride is suppose to have something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
What is the reason behind it?
Well it is indeed nothing more than superstition; however, wearing "something old" represents the bride's past, while the "something new" symbolizes the couple's most glorious future. The bride is supposed to get her "something borrowed" from someone who is happily married in the hope that some of that person's good luck rubs off on her. "Something blue" denotes fidelity and love; the primary tenets of marriage indeed...
Oh I thought all of it was suppose to be provided by the brides mother. Thats cool. I wonder who started it.
The rhyme appears to originate in England, an 1898 compilation of English folklore perhaps...
As Connorj says, but the British sometimes add to the rhyme '... and a silver sixpence in her shoe'. This represents good fortune and prosperity.
