What is everyone doing for their something old something new something borrowed and something blue? Or are you not doing it at all? Basically all I have so far are lots of something news lol. I'm curious to see what other people are using and maybe get some ideas.
My best friends will take care of all those requirements for me. At each of my best friends weddings we have taken one item I had blue (the year I went to Europe) and bought my friend a blue ankle bracelet. Her cousin did the something borrowed. I love that my girls will be doing this for me as well.
My something old will be a pearl necklace and earrings that are my moms, which I guess could also be my something borrowed. But, I was thinking of my something borrowed being a veil that my cousin wore unless I find something else I love. Something new would be my dress, and something blue will be ribbon on my bouquet and the sapphire that is in my ring.
My something new is my dress. My something borrowed will be my veil. I’m combining my something old and blue. I’m going to attach one of my grandfathers medals from when he served in the British Navy to my bouquet. I thought it would be a sweet way to honour his memory since he’s no longer with us.
Something old: vintage inspired wedding dress (because I have nothing old) Something new: rhinestone hair comb Something borrowed: mother’s sandals Something blue: sapphire earrings and necklace (bought at a garage sale (old), for cheap (new to me))
Also, don’t forget the six pence in the left shoe Current exchange puts the pound at roughly 1.68 Canadian, so six pence (1/100th of a pound) is .10 (a dime, which has the bluenose on it. Incase you don’t have anything blue..and if it’s old, and borrowed, this would be a win!
“The old item provided protection for the baby to come. The new item offers optimism to the future. The item borrowed from another happy bride provided good luck. The colour blue was a sign of fidelity. The sixpence-a silver British coin-was a symbol of prosperity or acted as a ward against evil done by frustrated suitors.”
Something old, borrowed and blue: My grandmother made the garter for my godmother over 35 years ago and it was still stunning and fit! It was even more sentimental to have that sort of love (and history) - it was a standard white one with beautiful lace, a lilac trim and a little blue ribbon! It was an honour to wear it . Dont stress about finding the perfect things, if you get stuck, add a blue sticker on the bottom of your shoe- get creative !
