It is with some embarassment and feelings of slight shame that I write this post.
A week or so ago I saw a post with one bee offering up a bee charm to be passed on to another bee as their “something borrowed.” Unfortunately I was too late.. Darn…
I thought it was a really cool idea, especially because the hive has become a huge place of support for me with wedding planning. I don’t have a lot of girl friends, few are married, and I was recently let go from my job. So my world is rather small these days. Culturally, my family doesnt do the whole “something borrowed” so no one has offered anything and I’m too embarassed to ask.
And yet, here I am.. I’m doing it. to you gals
Do any of you bees hav esomething I could possibly borrow? Nothing grand, anything really.
I do PROMISE to return it or pass it on to another Bee as you request.

@HourThyme: maybe borrow a friend/mom/g-ma/aunt’s perfume that thye wore when thy married. But, I am following to see what neat things our fellow bees will offer you! I don’t have anything of much value that could be used in a wedding, if I did though I would surely help you!!

I have an extra cathedral length veil, pearl earrings, and a pearl and crystal hair comb I ended up not using for my wedding (…don’t ask). If you want any of those I would be happy to send them to you. **Or anyone wants them!!!** Just PM me and I can send you pics. I thought about selling it on Ebay, but honestly, I just want to get rid of them. Other than that, I’m not really sure if I would have anything you would be looking for?

@HourThyme: I wish that I had something! Although to be honest the shipping from Canada probably wouldn’t be worth it. But someone here will have something cute I’m sure! And no shame in asking! That’s what the Bee is for!

Aww Bees are the Best! All you girls! I replied to the above specifically bc they offered something, thanks so much! Really anything would be super appreicated. Otterhalf, wish I would have asked sooner, just bought my veil!
Really I am looking for any little thing that I could tuck into my bouquet, pin to the inside of my dress, or something of the like. I loved the idea of a Bee charm I read about in another post so if anyone has anything “bee like” that would be so freaking amazing to represent the hive. Otherwise, I really think I will go out and get a little charm to tuck into my boquet to pass on afterward.
I am getting married in October, my colors are primarily neutrals (white, gold, blush) with emerald details. It’s a Catholic ceremony, the reception is at Union Station.
Hmm not sure what else..

@HourThyme: I asked my future MIL if she had a rosary she could lend me. I don’t believe in the whole old, new, borrowed, blue but I needed a nice rosary for my ceremony. She ended up just giving me one of hers.
Anyhow, I have all sorts of trinkets to let you borrow. Let me know what you are I looking for exactly.
