are you even following that tradition or giving it the flick?
I’ve got lots of something news! shoes, clutch, dress etc!
My something blue is some personalised underwear i have ordered with Mrs. Newlastname… est 05/10/2013 written across the bum, little surprise for FI!
I am still trying to figure out my something old and something borrowed – i’ve already got jewellery but may ask FMIL if she has something – my mum was broken into a couple of years ago and they took eveerything of value she had including everything she inherited from her mum 🙁

@Missy_Star: Aww, that’s awful! 🙁 I really hope your FMIL has something for you!
My something new is a bunch of different things, something blue is my garter/engagement ring, something old is a cameo pin my dad gave me for Christmas when I was ten, and I’ve yet to find a something borrowed. My grandma has a necklace she said I could wear, but I really don’t want any other jewelry. Are you putting a sixpence in your shoe? I wasn’t going to, but my father is absolutely insisting, lol.
