My BFF is getting married and she messaged me saying that she doesn’t know what to do for her “something borrowed”. I’d like to give her something, and wanted a few opinions on my ideas.
I’m sending her a package with some gifts and a few things that she could choose to use as her “something(s) borrowed” if she wants. They are:
– some simple crystal hairpins that I have- I randomly picked them up a couple weeks ago at World Market but they look like they’d go really well with her dress. So there’s no real sentimental value, but they’d most likely look the best.
– a small bottle of perfume I wore on my wedding day (Philosophy’s Amazing Grace.) I thought this was a creative idea, but perfume smells different on everyone so I’m not sure if it’s a good idea or not.
– I would really like to send her the bracelet my MIL let me borrow on my wedding day, and then gave to me to keep. It’s a beautiful bracelet with pearls in gold settings. Lots of sentimental value, but the problem is that ALL her other jewelry is silver and she doesn’t like gold jewelry. It would probably clash with what she’s planning to wear and I don’t know that she’d like it.
– A dainty silver ring with a white stone in the center that I have. Sentimental value is so-so because it’s not expensive and I don’t remember where I got it, but I’ve had it for a long time and it would look good with her dress. I have no idea if it would fit her or not.
Am I going about this the wrong way? Are there any other ideas that I’m missing? Any help or opinions are welcome!
