Old – vintage brooch I bought for my veil
New – my wedding ring (does that count?)
Borrowed – get back to you on that
Blue – my wedding colors are midnight blue and ice blue.

And…the silver sixpence in my shoe – my grandmother is bringing the penny that my great grandmother, my grandmother and my mom all wore in their shoes. It’s from the late 1800’s! I’m pretty excited about it!

Old: I have to ask, but if my Mom still has her wedding gown, I would like to get some lace from her wedding dress to use as my bouquet wrap. I don’t think it was preserved so it will have to be dyed, but it will be stunning!

New: My dress and my veil, definitely getting new.

Borrowed: My Mother’s Mother of Pearl Necklace, it has a silver chain on it and drops down to the hollow of the throat. It is absolutely gorgeous. She is giving it to me after the wedding. 🙂

Blue: I have really considered getting my shoes in blue, plus blue is going to be the accent color in our wedding.

  • Wedding: November 2009

Old – my e-ring, which my husband inherited from his great aunt – it was made in the 1920s.

New – everything else! I’ll count that as my w-ring.

Borrowed – I couldn’t think of anything so my BM lent me a plain bobby pin on the day which my hairdresser incorporated into my updo. Nobody could see it but it still counts! Since it looked slightly different to the ones used by the hairdresser, I returned it to her the next day.

Blue – I sewed a tiny swarovski crystal on to my knickers. My BM also surprised me with a white garter on the day which had a tiny blue bow.

Sixpence – I glued an Australian 5c coin to the undersole of my shoe. I’m Australian but we’re living in and got married in New Zealand, so it was important to me to incorporate Australian things into our wedding.
