Hi Bee’s –
We all know the “something borrowed, something blue” wedding tradition. But what about all the other things Bride’s borrow for their wedding day?
I was talking to a co-worker and she borrowed a TON of items from family and friends for her wedding day to bring down the costs, it was also a sweet setimental thing for her as well.
I am trying to make a list of items that we could borrow for our wedding day, so I can get to asking folks.
So far all I have thought of is: wedding cake stand, wedding cake knife, and picture frames.
What you have Bee’s borrowed or plan to borrow?

I was going to use my veil – I am wearing my moms veil that she wore when she got married 3 years ago. But that is now my “old”.
Borrowed is from the jewelry store we created my ring at. My dad does all the marketing for his company & they have become really good friends. The owner is letting me borrow a necklace for my big day! 🙂

One of my friends got married last September, and gave me ALL of her votive candleholders (which she had lined with lace), and frames for holding table numbers.
My mom cleaned out a kitchen drawer and found tons of tealights that she gave me.
I’m borrowing a cake knife set from my SIL; she also offered me a ring bearer pillow, flower girl basket, and cake topper. I’m also borrowing baskets (to hold programs, bathroom goodies, flip flops, etc) from family members.
So many people have so much wedding stuff – it’s easy to borrow it if you just ask recently married friends!

I’m borrowing some lace from my mom… it’s handmade and really old (so it’s also my something old), made by someone in our family but we think sometime before my grandmother (my mom got it from her, but doesn’t think she made it). I’ve used the lace to edge my veil. I also am borrowing the cake knife and server from my sister and her husband.
