A Nod to Tradition: “Something Blue” in Bridal Looks

Blue lingerie as "something blue" for a bride

Every wedding is a celebration of love and unity, filled with meaningful traditions that have been passed down through generations. Among these cherished customs is the tradition of incorporating “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue” into the bride’s attire. From silk blue lingerie to different bridal accessories, let’s explore some fabulous “something blue” options for the modern bride.

History of Tradition

The origins of this tradition can be traced to an old English rhyme known as the “Old English Rhyme” or “Something Old, Something New.” This rhyme, dating back to the 16th century, goes, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.” Each item in the rhyme symbolizes different aspects of luck and blessings for the bride on her wedding day.

The concept of “something blue” specifically refers to the color blue, which has traditionally been associated with purity, fidelity, and love. It was believed that incorporating blue pieces into the bride’s attire would bring happiness, harmony, and longevity to the marriage. 

Blue lingerie


A set of lingerie in baby blue color is a perfect choice as the “something blue” for a bride on her wedding day. The delicate, lightweight, and luxurious silk fabric combined with the shade of blue creates an incredibly beautiful ensemble. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this classic bra and matching briefs exude elegance and femininity. With MOYE’s exquisite craftsmanship, this lingerie set becomes a cherished memento of your special day.

Blue eye mask


Amidst the whirlwind of wedding preparations, a good night’s sleep is crucial for every bride. Our bestselling silk eye mask blocks out the light and helps to excellently relax before an important day. Thanks to the beneficial properties of natural silk, this mask keeps the skin hydrated and prevents the formation of wrinkles. It ensures you wake up feeling refreshed and revitalized on your special day. A silk sleeping mask in blue color is also one of the great gifts for a bride-to-be.

Blue wedding garter


The garter is a classic “something blue” item that holds a sense of tradition and allure. Our feminine Billy garter is crafted of a very pleasant to-the-touch natural silk. The elastic band inside creates delicate creases, which makes the garter a perfect addition to a sensual set of lingerie or a minimalistic wedding dress.
