The Tradition of Something Borrowed

Posted on by Alexa Gould


The Tradition of Something BorrowedThe saying ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue’ has stood the test of time when it comes to weddings. We love to see how our Bay House couples incorporate the tradition of ‘Something Borrowed’ into their wedding day in Destin. There are many unique ways to do this. Let’s explore!

First, a little history lesson. The saying originated in Victorian England. Each mention in the saying is intended to ward off the “evil eye” aka bring good luck to your wedding day. With Something Borrowed, the couple hopes that the borrowed item brings them good fortune in the coming years. We love when couples choose something that has sentimental value. Often, people incorporate a special family heirloom or piece of jewelry.

Perhaps your Something Borrowed is a special piece of jewelry, but you’ve already secured your wedding accessories. Luckily, there are many creative ways to still incorporate it. For example, you can have your florist position the jewelry in your bouquet. We’ve seen some beautiful arrangements like this come down the aisle. Also, you can opt to have the jewelry sewn into your dress or a groom’s jacket.

For your wedding in Destin, we hope you join us at the Bay House™. Our waterfront event venue is a special place. We’ve hosted countless weddings and love to see how each couple brings their personal style to the celebration. From preferred vendors to great amenities, we have you covered. Need more?
