  • Wedding: September 2013

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 going to ask my friend if I can “borrow”/ have her post box. My something old are my Grandmother’s black and white pearls and earrings.

I borrowed my one friend’s card box, as well as some accessories from DH’s sister for the cultural part of our ceremony that she used them for her wedding 20 years ago 🙂

I rolled the borrowed and blue into one item. Our get away car was my step-dad’s blue Chevy SSR.

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.
