Has everyone picked what they will be doing for this tradition.. if you are in fact doing anything?
I’ll go first!
Borrowed: My grandmas pearl ring and bracelet and maybe earrings
Old: Possibly the same as above from my grandma, however I might see if my FI’s grandma has a broach or something I could pin on my bouquet.
Blue: Unsure at this point. My grandma is getting me a garter, so that may have blue. I do want to include my mom in this tradition since she is the best.. so I might see if she had any ideas (i.e. blue studs for my second earring hole?)!

Oh! I love the idea of blue “I Do” sticker for shoes. I bet those pictures would look adorable! And I may have to borrow this idea for our wedding.
Old: Necklace that FI bought for me 4 years ago.
Borrowed: No clue yet… hopefully my mom, sisters, or close friends can help with this one.
Blue: Maybe the “I Do” stickers on the soles of my shoes. Also, I once saw a bride who embroidered her wedding date in blue on the lining of her dress. Super cute!

Old: my garter – sounds strange but i am borrowing the garter my mum brought for her wedding. (30 yrs ago and still has its elastic I was surprised too hehe) (it is also blue)
New: my jewellery/dress/shoes
Borrowed: ?? Very unsure about this. My FMIL wants me to wear a ring that has been in the fam for over 200 yrs BUT it is yellow gold (everything I wear is white gold or silver) I am CONTEMPLATING tying it with a blue ribbon to my bouquet but I will have to run that past FMIL. FI said he doesn’t mind either way
