Just wondering if you ladies are following this tradition, and if so, what are your old, new, borrowed and blue things going to be?
So far I only have my ‘old’ thing – I think I’m going to have my great-grandmother’s eternity ring resized and wear it on my right hand. It’s amazing – from the 1800s and a DIAMOND-FEST of a ring!
I’d love to hear what you are doing, and hopefully I will be able to steal some of your ideas 🙂

@MrsTickledPink: I’ve never heard of this part before! I wonder if it varies from country to country?

@SydneyJen: as far as I know it was always part of it… It is just over generations it has been left out. As your grandma or someone from that generation to see if they remember it.
