As we kick off wedding traditions week here at Sugar HQ, I couldn't help but think of the old adage of "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." Each item from this Old English rhyme is meant to bring good luck to the bride, with "something old" meant to represent continuity with the past. If you're a bride-to-be, or if you're a friend or relative looking to make the bride's day a bit more special, here are five ways you can do "something old" the beauty way. Look for the rest of the traditions throughout the week, and be sure to check out all of our wonderful wedding content, too.
