    I’m borrowing a sapphire/diamond necklace my mom has had for forever, since early years of when she and my dad have been married (25 years this August). I’m excited about wearing it. Also I have a baby bonnet she got 23 years ago when i was born. It turns into a hanky on your daughter’s wedding day and i’m going to wrap my bouquet in it.

    To answer your question – i think your "something old" can be as old as you want it to be.  What is more important is the meaning behind.  I would rather have used something 5 years old that had meaning and sentiment, than something 20+ years old that meant nothing to me.  Carry what you like – there is no  hard and fast rule here. 🙂

    incidentally, I LOVED my something old and I still treasure it!  I wore my grandmother’s veil.  Her mother (my great-grandmother) made it for her out of lace that HER mother brought over to America from Ireland when they came to this country!  So meaningful to me 🙂

    My something old is going to be my great grandmother’s pearls wrapped around my bouquet. 🙂

    My something old is a diamond bracelet that my grandfather bought for my grandmother about 15 years ago. They have both since passed away so it really means alot to have that on me on my wedding day.
