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.

New: SHOES! 

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

Blue: I have a hankie which I embroidered with my initial in royal blue…
