(Sorry for the GINORMOUS photos…)


Something Old: my Mom’s brooch (gifted to her for her 16th birthday from her dad)

Something New (and my something blue!!): My husband gifted me with this necklace the morning of the wedding. 

And finally, my something borrowed was a beautiful diamond tennis bracelet from one of my bridesmaids.

(that’s her putting it on me above, , but a closeup of the bracelet below)

Something Old: is the fabric bouquet my friend threw at her wedding and I caught, I’m re-using it for mine, its not really old but its older than anything else.. but not throwing it. I’m having a different one made for that! haha
New: My dress, shoes, basically everything.
Borrowed: I haven’t gotten to borrowed yet! Hopefully there will be something.
Blue: My Nail decor will be blue, also throwing around the idea of a blue garter..

Right now the only thing I’m doing is sewing a green shamrock into the folds of my dress, my mother is INSISTING on it because… I don’t know.
She thinks it’s wicked funny, so if it makes he laugh it’s fine by me.

I’m not really interested in wrapping my head around all the olds and news and blues, especially since I’ll be wearing a whole lot of teal haha.

Old: my mom sewed her own wedding dress, so were using some scrap lace that was left over to wrap my bouquet (without having to cut into her beautiful dress!)

New: dress, wedding ring, jewellery etc lol

borrowed: when my grandfather died, each of the grandsons took one of his medals from when he was in the brittish army, i’m going to borrow the one my brother has and either pin it to the bouquet, or into my dress

blue: my fsil got my a stunning tacori blue topaz right hand ring as an engagement gift, so i will be wearing that.
