Let's face it: certain wedding day traditions need to hit the road. We will be more than content if we are never again forced to watch another awkward garter removal or stand in a receiving line. But other traditions are unique to each and every bride, and as such, should be cherished. According to a 19th century English rhyme, four tokens — something old, new, borrowed, and blue — bring luck to the bride on the big day. Family mementos and jewelry often cover the first three, but brides have significant wiggle room when it comes to their something blue. Sure, it's simple enough to don a sapphire or include blue irises in the bouquet, but we challenge you to get a little more creative with your lucky charm.
