The Something Blue is usually a ribbon, or brooch, or some other minor accessory. Before 1840, blue was the choice colour for wedding dresses as it was the colour for purity (being associated with the Virgin Mary). The white gown only became popular that year, when QueenVictoria wore a white lace gown for her wedding to Prince Albert, and has remained a traditional western wedding costume ever since.

Some people buy antique coins especially (for considerably more than 6p) -- whether that also counts towards their Something Old is up for debate.
