Just a basic question: What are your “somethings”? I’m so curious to see what everyone else has come up with!
Mine have a theme. All of mine have been given to me by a mother figure in my life. We’re gonna have a little thing in the back of our program that tells people what they are and who they’re from.
Something old: My vintage wedding gown, worn by my grandma in 1957
Something new: A bracelet, given to my by my Future Mother-In-Law (She was so excited that I asked her, and has already started searching for the perfect item. Even though I’m still over a year away!)
Something borrowed: My step mother’s wedding bands to be worn on my right hand, loaned to me by my father (my step mother passed away this summer)
Something blue: an unknown gift from my mom, which will either be a necklace or earrings. (I’m really holding on to her giving me her sapphire necklace lol)
So Bees, what are yours?

I don’t have all my “somethings” yet but here are the ones I do have:
Something old: My Godmother’s family mantilla (not the veil). The mantilla comes from Spain and it has been used at her son’s wedding during the ceremony. It’s 25 years old and I will be the second one to use it.
Something new: My wedding gown and veil.
Something borrowed: TBD…hopefully jewelry.
Something blue: It will probably be two items, my garter which my mom has decided to make for me and a message which my Fiance and I will have on the sole of our shoes.

Something old: I bought a vintage clutch on Etsy
Something new: My dress, veil, shoes & jewelry
Something borrowed: My mom gave my grandmother’s hankie that she had on her wedding day to my sister. I’m borrowing it
Something blue: This I am not sure about.. there is actually a little blue crystal glued to the comb of my veil so that might be good enough.
Six Pence: I am ordering one online with the year of my grandparent’s wedding. I actually bought my dress on what would have been their anniversary so I thought this was fitting.

Something old: Nothing yet…I hope I get to wear something old! An antique veil would be more than amazing. Alas, I shall see.
Something new: My wedding dress and pearl bracelet with peridot beads from Etsy.
Something borrowed: My FMIL’s pearl necklace and earrings her husband gave her years ago. I am SO honored and beyond excited to wear them 🙂
Something blue: Probably my heels, but I might get ivory ones instead. I am thinking about getting a navy blue garter set to wear.

My something old is my bracelet that my mom has made me… the beads are taken from an old piece of jewelry.
My something new is the dress and shoes.
My something borrowed is my sister in law’s garter.
My something blue is a frienship ring that my sister is giving me when she gets here to New Zealand, as my birthday is the week before the wedding… and she has a matching one so we are both going to be wearing them on the wedding day. 🙂

Something old: My e-ring was my FI’s grandmas… My Future Mother-In-Law gave us a broken peice of jewelry from the art neuvo period I am planning on repurposing and putting it on my bouquet
Something new: dress, shoes, jewelry
Something borrowed: ? one of my BM’s offered me her veil but as my dress is ivory and a very different style from her dress I declined it… and I am thinking of going veil-less…
Something blue: probably undies…. haven’t bought them yet! maybe i will sew something in my dress

I’m still in the planning stages, but here’s what I’m thinking for the old and borrowed categories.
Something old: I’m making my bouquet out of my granny’s old buttons. When she passed away, my mom gave them to me. I’m so excited to be using them in such a special way.
Something borrowed: I’m hoping my mom will let me borrow my granny’s gold anniversary band. Truthfully, I’d really like to wear the going steady ring my mom received from my dad, but it’s a bit too big for my hand and it’s silver. (My ring and jewelry are all rose gold/bronze.) I may try to incorporate it another way though.

I don’t have everything yet:
Something New: My dress
Something Borrowed: My Grandmother’s rosary that was handmade in Portugal, it will be wrapped around my bouquet along with my Papa’s (who has passed) wedding ring. It could also technically encompass something blue, because the beads are blue and green.

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
Something old: my e-ring (was my mother’s)
Something new: almost everything (dress, shoes, earrings, bracelets)
Something borrowed: hum, if I carry a purse, it will be my great-grandmothers, but does it count as borrowed if she’s passed? The flowers in my hair are borrowed from mother Earth…
Something blue: my garter
