@out4answers:  I borrowed a lovely lace handkerchief from my grandmother. My something old was my great-grandmother’s gold pocket watch which I inherited. I pinned it to the plain satin sash I wore- I loved the effect, and it was totally unique. Good luck!

Great grandmothers handkerchief she embroidered with blue flowers will be my something old, borrowed and something blue (borrowing it from my mother).  I will be wearing teal blue shoes also.  My something new will be my dress and veil and jewelry.  I would like something else borrowed but unsure what it will be.  I originally planned on my moms garter for borrowed but it was lost when their house was destroyed in a tornado 4 years ago.

Borrowed was tough for me too, as my mom doesn’t have much jewelry. I ended up asking my grandma if I could borrow something that my grandfather gave to her. She brought me a whole slew of things, and I ended up wearing a gorgeous watch (I had in no way planned on a watch for my wedding!!). It meant so much to her!

If your family members don’t have something to borrow, perhaps a friend might?

As for old — I think “old” is subjective. I wore my earrings from prom — I figure they were old enough!! 

Good luck!

Mine were:

New: my dress
Old: the diamond in my necklace (It was from a ring that my Grandpa W gave my Grandma W for their 30th anniversary)
Blue: my blue sappire earrings that my Grandma W gave me for my 8th grade graduation
Borrowed: our date.  We eloped on what would have been my Nana & Papa B’s 52nd wedding anniversary. (didn’t realize it until we got the marriage license & I saw the date)

I am wearing my Granny’s (great grandma on my mom’s mom’s side) engagement ring and wedding band, and I am carrying *in my bouquet (OOOH! I must remember to tell my flower guy!)* a little ceramic cat from my Nana (great grandma on mom’s dads side) and I am hoping to ask my other grandma (dads side) for something too

I borrowed a penny from my friend/neighbor to put in my shoe.

You could also borrow a  brooch to put on your bouquet.
