B

Most of us have heard of the tradition that the bride (新娘) should wear something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue on her wedding day. Each of these items was once thought to ensure the bride’s goo d luck. Till today, the tradition is still kept in Britain and North America.

Something old shows the bride’s connection with her family and her past as a single lady. A woman may choose to wear a piece of family jewelry or part of her mother or grandmother’s wedding outfit (全套衣服). The wedding dress is often passed down from generation to generation. Some changes may need to be made, while some people don’t wish to make any changes to the original wedding dress.

   Something new in the bride’s outfit means the new life the bride will soon begin. A new item should make her think of the joys her future life will bring. Therefore, the new item usually comes from her husband or his family. Some good ideas are jewelry and shoes.

   Borrowing an item to carry or wear on the wedding day reminds a bride that her friends and family are there for her when she needs help. It will be perfect if the item is borrowed from a happily married woman. The bride’s best friend can lend her the wedding veil (面纱) for the big day.
