Oh, I love this!

Old: A ring, bracelet and watch that were gifted to my mother’s cousin’s husband’s mother from her husband back in the 1920s.

New: jewelry and shoes–the shoes were so new I didn’t even SEE them until the day before the rehearsal dinner!

Borrowed: the rosary my sister carried during her first communion that she then carried with her bouquet when she got married. I wrapped it around my bouqet too.

Blue: the ribbon my garter

I couldn’t find a six pence in time. 🙁

Old:  not sure yet.  Consulting with my bridesmaids on this one! Panties? LOL

New: my dress, veil, tiara, etc . . . .

Borrowed: also not sure yet.  Consulting with bridesmaids on this. Mom’s not in the picture, not even on speaking terms with me, so that basically counts her out.

Blue: the beautiful new blue sapphire necklace my husband gifted me at my choice as his wedding present for me! Yes, I was thinking of “something blue” when I made my choice and it goes nicely with my gown! YAHOO

This is fun! Do you all have suggestions for things old and things borrowed? I’m asking my bridesmaids, because one is a VERY good friend, another is a very good friend I’ve known since I was 15, and the third girl is actually my new sister in law.  Should I also ask my new mom-in-law for options?  I thought about that . . . she’d probably be thrilled I asked!

Something Old: My late-grandfather’s tie clip will be clipped onto my bouquet

Something New: My new pearl bracelet!!

Something Borrowed: I’m going to wear the pearl studs my mom wore when she married my dad 🙂

Something Blue: TBD – I’m thinking either my garter, or blue “I Do” stickers for the bottom of my shoes! Orrr… I just looked, and one of the “gem stones” on my shoes is blue! Ta da! Yay
