I’m not doing any of it. I figured luck won’t make my marriage work, my FH and I will so I am going to wear what I want. That being said everything is new except for the pearl earings I am wearing that my Dad gave me years ago.

I didn’t focus on the tradition – it just happened.  I wasn’t planning on making it happen if it didn’t happen organically though.

I had things in mind but that’s about as far as it went.  It wasn’t until after the wedding that I realized that I didn’t do any of them!

Honestly, I hadn’t even thought about it until I saw your post. To me, it doesn’t even matter! I don’t know the story behind it, but if it revolves around luck I’m not a superstitious person anyway!

i don’t plan on following it strictly, because it’s not a tradition that i’m familiar with (i don’t even know what it’s for LOL).

I don’t think it’s a must, but I think you’ve got it covered anyway Roxy.

If you garter is old, borrowed and blue I thin you’re good… I don’t think you need a separate item for each.

I’m not doing it.  No reason why….I just don’t feel like it.  Seems like more of a hassle trying to find those things.  🙂

Unless it occurs by happenstance, I’m not following that.  You sound like you’re covered anyway, so you’ve got the best of both worlds!

Nope, not doing it  -don’t see what the point is.

We’re not really doing it.  Unless you count a sample dress from the 2005 season as “old,” rented jewelry as “borrowed,” and my groom’s boxers as the something blue.  It’s a bit of a stretch.  I really don’t care either.

@roxy821:  It sounds like you’ve got old, new, borrowed and blue all taken care of already.  However, it’s really not necessary anyway.  Our “borrowed” wasn’t something we wore, but was the kiddush cup we drank wine from.  I think that if it happens to work for you, it can be fun, but if it doesn’t, skip it.

Definitely not required and many women skip it. I have no intentions of doing any of it because I am not superstitious at all, nor do I care about that aspect. I may have something blue just for giggles but it’s not one of our colors so it would not be obvious at all, whatever it may be.

Unless it is something that is important to you and your family, I would say toss it. Having traditional things  (like that garter) are what is most important to me not living up to other expectations of traditional.
