brittnamrogo : I’m definitely doing this for my wedding day!! – and most brides forget the last part of the rhyme “and a six pence in her shoe.”
Something Old – a well loved pair of knickers, lol
Something New – shoes, headpiece, veil etc.
Something Borrowed – the pearl and diamond earrings my mom wore on her wedding day
Something Blue – my engagement ring, does that count? (it has a blue sapphire center)
Sixpence in the Shoe – to be incorporated in bouquet

I forgot the sixpence until after it was too late! My mother borrowed her grandma’s blue ring as her old/borrowed/blue, but unfortunately it’s disappeared–probably gifted to someone else in the family. Otherwise I would’ve worn the same ring as my mom!
Old: My great-grandmas’ wedding rings! I was close with both on my mom’s side, but they passed away in 2008 & 2009. We tied the rings to my bouquet, and it was lovely having those as a reminder. 🙂
New: Dress, shoes, earrings…
Borrowed: My friend/florist’s veil! I belive my wedding was the veil’s 4th or 5th trip down the aisle.
Blue: My shoes had navy blue on them. They were my official Blue, then also my right-hand ring has a blue stone, and a friend made me a bracelet with blue beads.
