Something… Anglo-Saxon

In every culture the wedding day is one of the most important moments in the life of brides and grooms, a rite of passage through which not only do two hearts go to live together under one roof, but also decide to beat in unison.
Nevertheless, not everywhere do the bride follow the same tradition.
From old England comes the antique custom that says the bride should wear something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.
They say that, in fact, something old reminds you of your youth and something new welcomes one to married life.
Something borrowed honors someone dear as a profound participant and something blue comes from the Jewish tradition, in which the bride used to adorn her hair with a ribbon of that color to indicate her fidelity and her purity.
And for the more superstitious: the bride should wear in her shoe a coin worth a few cents for good luck for the finances of the newlyweds.
