just curious. i didn’t care at all and some of my friends/coworkers thought i was weird for that. i was like “as if it will actually have any bearing on how well my wedding OR marriage goes!”
and i wanted to wear all new stuff! no place for old! or borrowed for that matter! and blue? unless you wore a garter (which i also could not be bothered with), how could i wear something blue! ok, well maybe shoes, but if i did colored shoes, they would have been purple!
what about you?

I voted “other”.
I’m doing it for fun. But I don’t think it’s really anything important.

I like the traditional and fun element of it. But I’m actually having multiples of each item.
Old: Grandma’s ring (right hand ring)
New: obviously lots of things (dress, earrings, lingerie, etc)
Borrowed: right hand ring and veil
Blue: shoes and right hand ring is gold and aquamarine

Oh yeah, my FSIL was horrified that I’m not planning on wearing a garter, and I’m sure I’ll get the same reaction from many others on that and the fact that I don’t care about the old, borrowed, and blue.

I didn’t really care, but I realized that I’m pretty much doing it anyway. My dress will be new. My mom’s silver ring with a blue inlay is my something borrowed, old and blue.

I honestly don’t care. Plus blue just doesn’t go with my theme in the slightest 😛

I did it. Something new – obvious… Pretty much everything. I borrowed a penny for my shoe (another tradition) and that may have been my old too. And my blue was my tanzanite earrings and tanzanite setting around an opal for my right hand.
But I guess I don’t think it has any effects on my relationship. Just wanted to do it. 🙂

I don’t really care, as in, I don’t think it has any effect on my wedding day/marriage, but I’m doing it anyway, just by chance.
I have lots of new things: Dress, veil, earrings, shoes, etc.
My aunt gave me the “old” for my shower: a hankie that was her (and my mom’s) grandmother’s, and may have even been their great-grandmother’s! She doesn’t have any daughters, and wrote me a beautiful note to go along with it.
Borrowed: My paternal grandparent’s wedding rings that will be tied to my bouquet (they have both passed, grandma this past December, grandpa in ’04)
Blue: My shoes, and the hankie has blue on it as well

Nope, never crossed my mind! The only thing on that list that I have is the “something new” which is everything I will be wearing that day!

@ms.walter: haha, same with me! well then when i was talking to my friend, i said i guess my underwear will be old – i didn’t buy news one to wear under my dress, although i had new lingerie for my wedding night!

I voted other because I didn’t really care but I will have them all anyway, without even trying.
Old: vintage brooches in bouquet
New: dress and most of my outfit
Borrowed: mom’s pearl ring will go on my right hand
Blue: brooches in my bouquet again

I personally don’t care too terribly much about it but I might end up doing it anyways. FMIL looked at me all shocked when I said I wasn’t going to… So she will probably find some stuff for me to use LOL.

Is it bad that I would probably make a point of NOT having something old, borrowed, blue, etc., just because I’m annoyed with people who tell me I HAVE to do that?

@Wonderstruck: lol, i dont think so. i might have done, if i didnt want to be somewhat “anti” traditional!

I was going to and have got some bits. But there’s nothing for me to have for old and borrowed, apart from a pearl necklace, which is lovely from FMIL but it doesn’t go with my dress.
