  • Wedding: February 2010

It was brought up yesterday by one of my sisters that my something old should be a portion of my blanket (Wubby…yes, like in the movie Mr. Mom).

When dress shopping this weekend I found THE DRESS. While I had it on, one of my sisters brought up the fact that it reminded her of Wubby on the bottom.

Let it be said that I ALWAYS had Wubby with me…and slept with it for many years (too many than I should probably admit). I always said that my husband would replace my blanket.

So, now I just have to decide if I want to part with my Wubby (since I would most likely massacre it to wrap around my flowers), or if I want to admit to everyone who asks that my something old is my blanket!

  • Wedding: September 2010

I will be carrying a white hankie that my great-grandma gave my grandma to carry on her wedding day.  Grandma is embroidering her initials and wedding date and mine along the edge, and then we can add my sister’s and cousins’ down the road when it’s their turn.

I’m thrilled.

@JuneBride:  What wonderful family treasures.  I have a soft spot for fellow genealogists.  How exciting for you.  I posted about a couple of my somethings old… my grandmother’s earrings and the champagne toasting coupe’s that my grandparents used at their wedding.  I also pinned a little Bible-shaped locket (that was a gift from my grandfather to my mom when she was a child) to my bouquet.  It contained photos of both sets of my grandparents.

MIL made me a tiny satin pouch to carry that contained small treasures from Mr. Y’s family: a gold coin that was carried down the aisle by MIL’s grandmother, a glass button from MIL’s great-grandfather’s wedding day vest, and an antique compass that Mr. Y gave her to carry when she remarried years ago
