Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Something Borrowed, Something Blue is a mild fashion bridal series that focuses on the role bridal gowns play in wedding traditions and family customs. While the show is geared toward adults, kids who watch won't see much iffy stuff. A few references to dresses being "sexy" and an occasional glimpse of champagne, plus some emotional moments might be the only areas of concern.
Is It Any Good?
Something Borrowed, Something New highlights the role that classic Victorian customs, like wearing something old, something borrowed, and even something blue, play in weddings. It also shows how important it is to families -- particularly mothers -- to pass down their customs to future generations.
There is some discussion of designers and dress styles, as well as how it is possible to take elements of a dress to create something new while maintaining the integrity of the original garment. But most of the show's focus is on the important role bridal dresses play in a wedding, and how they can represent strong emotional bonds between family and friends.
