So I have everything else for the Something Old, Something New…
I’m stumped on my Something Borrowed.
How did you all get your something borrowed and was it offered to you or did you ask someone for it?
It is my understanding that it is supposed to be from a happily married woman to bring you good luck in your marriage.
My mom is divorced so that’s sort of out of the question if that’s the case and there are not many women in my family.
Any thoughts, suggestions?

This is the one I’m stumped with too and look forward to seeing what people post.

Well…I kind of altered my something borrowed. Since FI can’t be with me the day of…before the wedding, I decided to use one of his button down shirts to wear while getting ready.

A colleague who had recently gotten married offered to borrow me her shoes, as they fit, were perfect for my dress, and she believed that they were too expensive so she wanted to help out.
Also, I had not found earrings that I liked, so I kind of settled for the ones that came in a set with my necklace… As we were getting ready, my mom noticed my friend’s earrings that were perfect with my outfit and she asked her if she would lend them to me. Right before going out for the ceremony, we switched earrings.

I’m borrowing my sister’s freshwater pearl necklace and earrings that she wore at her wedding.

I’m thinking maybe a pearl bracelet? Since I don’t have a bracelet for my jewelery yet.

I’m borrowing a pearl bracelet from my mother. She just got it though! She decided that since I needed to borrow something, she would have my dad buy her something nice I could borrow 🙂 I think it was a pretty brilliant idea.

I’m carrying the bible my mom carried when she and my dad got married.

I borrowed a pair of diamond earrings from my FMIL. I’ve had friends borrow veils from recent brides. How about something you can tie to your bouquet? That way even if it is not something you would necessarily wear, it can be borrowed and have a special meaning too 🙂

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…and a sixpence (or penny) in your shoe. I’m going to borrow a penny the day of my wedding and kill 2 birds with 1 stone, LOL.

I borrowed my friend’s beautiful veil! It was perfect for my gown and I was honored to wear it!

I don’t know what I’m going to do for that one either.
My something old: Earrings that FI bought me. They’ll be almost three years old by the time my wedding rolls around… I hope that’s old enough.
My something new: My dress, veil and shoes? I hope those count.
My something borrowed: NO CLUE!!
My something blue: My bouquet.
My dress doesn’t call for a necklace, I have already picked out my earrings and veil, and none of my friends have shoes that I can borrow– I don’t know what to do. I like the idea of borrowing a bracelet though. Hmmm… Now I have to figure out who has a nice bracelet that I can borrow…

I borrowed my friends veil, too!! She was married a few months before Ic was and I loved her veil. She offered me her shoes and I wore them, too!! Her shoes were so expensive and adorable and were my size, so I was thrilled to wear them. Some people might think it is weird, but I really liked wearing her veil and shoes on my special day.
