Wedding Traditions Explained: Something Old, Something New Borrowed & Blue

As modern as most weddings are, brides are still sentimental when it comes to the old fashioned tradition of getting married. The traditional wedding phrase has been around for centuries, and is still being honored today. Brides-to-be choose to follow the tradition, of acquiring something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

Brides want something old in their wedding to remind them of their wedding day. This is an item they will most likely pass on to their daughter one day; hopefully, at her wedding.

Something new represents the beginning of a new future. Brides want to share a new item in their life. It could be a new dress or a new pair of shoes. Or perhaps your fabulous new wedding ring. The item can be anything new that will remind the bride of her new beginning.

Something borrowed is actually borrowed from a couple that is already happily married. Brides believe they can actually borrow some else’s joy. After the ceremony the item is returned to the lender.

Something blue is a very old tradition. Before white wedding dresses came into existence, blue was the traditional wedding color for brides.

Weddings are traditionally fun, personal and sentimental. They represent the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. They also represent the beginning of a brand new life.

Raymond Lee Jewelers complies with Florida state law stating we can legally charge up to, but not greater than, 25% interest per month equaling 300% APR. However, Raymond Lee Jewelers normally charges a fraction of that. We have the lowest interest rates in South Florida.

The implications for non-payment include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Interest payments for any months missed are due. If the loan is in default previous month's interest payments are void.
2. We will try to contact you via phone, email, or text message to try to collect payment.
3. There is no impact on your credit score for a defaulted pawn loan.
4. Monthly interest payments act as renewals, extending the loan 30 days when a full interest payment is made. There is no renewal fee.
