Some old traditions are also superstitions and for the bride that is following the "Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue," mantra, there are ways that she can customize to suit her personality.
This Victorian rhyme is supposed to bring good luck and 'something old' represents staying connected to their family. For this, a bride may wish to wear a family heirloom such as a locket or ring or to carry a photo of her family in her bouquet or a handkerchief. A bride can decorate the 'something old' trinket and make it a part of her wedding attire as an accessory.
'Something new' represents the couple's new union and it is likely that a bride's gown or accessories are already new.
Family and friends are supposed to offer 'something borrowed' as a symbol of their love to the bride. That something borrowed could be a special ring or bracelet that the bride has been loaned for the wedding.
'Something blue' represents fidelity and for this, the bride may have more fun modernizing by wearing blue shoes, a blue sash on her dress or even wear a blue garter.
Don't forget that there should also be a 'silver sixpence in her shoe.' Brides can put a penny in their shoe to have good fortune.

Attached are the pictures of me wearing the dress in the 2010 Miss World Canada Regional pageant.
I was chosen as one of the 10 girls to represent Ontario in the National pageant that took place in Vancouver.
It was a great experience and your dress made it even better!
All the best and I hope to work with you again someday.
I wanted to thank everyone at best for bride once again for the wonderful service I received. When I arrived at your store I was pretty nervous. I had no idea what I was looking for, what would suite me or what I even wanted. My mother has been ill the last little while, and dress shopping was not something she could really participate in, making the ordeal that much more stressful. The staff at best for bride treated me like a daughter from the selection, to the fittings, right down to the alterations. I was so happy with my dress and it was well within budget. I got so many complements about my dress on and after the wedding day.
Thank you again, it really meant a lot.
My name is Elaine and I purchased my dream wedding dress from Best for Bride. The service I received from my very first visit to every time I went back was just amazing. They were all so supportive, helpful, honest and really had an eye for seeing the vision I was trying to find. They made me feel like a princess and really helped me with my search for my dream gown. When I did find "the dress" they were just as happy and excited as my family and friends were, they were the best goup of ladies to have with me at that moment. The customer service at Best for Bride was no comparison to any of the other stores I had been to, and ultimately, is why I kept going back and found my wedding gown there.
Thanks so much ladies, it was the best experience, and just the experience I hoped for.
