Okay. So I am a non-traditional bride in all ways. getting married in Vegas, only 15 guests all immediate family, no cheesey things like dances or speeches or any of that.
I am visiting my parents, and today she started talking about finding something old, borrowed and blue…and i was like Ã am not doing that stuff, I am not into all that stuff.”She seemed a bit unnervedby it but understands that this is what I am like. Has anyone else ever skipped these things, or does anyone plan to at all? I just wondering if I am being too stubborn and closed minded, but I really hater that sort pf stuff. thanks, krusty

I wasn’t overly concerned with it – but all those things kind of fell naturally into place. I ended up wearing lacy blue undies (cause I wanted them anyway)
borrowed: i didn’t wear it- but I borrowed my mom and dad’s cake cutter- it was very sentimental as theirs was engraved and it just had more meaning for me.
old: diamond in my engagement ring, was my g’mas.
(and no penny in my shoe- that would have just been uncomfortable)

Eh, don’t worry about it =) You don’t ‘have to’ do anything you don’t want to! My dress was blue, and I guess my underwear was old, the rest was all new, but that was all by coincidence and I didn’t have anything borrowed =)
See http://www.indiebride.com or http://www.offbeatbride.com for all kinds of non-standard weddings 🙂 They were a big help (and comfort) to me when I was planning!

old – I guess could have been my veil? My aunt wore it the year before…
new – My dress, all jewelery, shoes…
borrowed – My veil…
blue – My shoes and engagement ring

I’m super non-traditional, but I think I like that tradition just because it’s fun. If it’s not something you’re into, I wouldn’t worry about it. I think most things you’ll just end up with…like something old and new (unless you bought all of your stuff). I think the only one that isn’t just a part of what I’m wearing is something borrowed, so I might borrow something from someone like my mom or something. I don’t think it’s really that huge of a tradition.
