    I’m having my something blue because it’s kind of a default for me. Our colors are shades of blue and pops of orange, so I wanted blue shoes anyway. Something borrowed….eh, I bought a veil from my friend for uber cheap. I’ll consider that borrowed, lol. And something new…well, my dress, my shoes, my bracelet, my veil, LOL!

    I’m whatever about traditions, lol. I don’t have a dad to walk me down the aisle, so Fiance will be meeting me halfway, so there goes that one. We’re not going to do a bouquet/garter toss….we’re doing our wedding OUR way 😉

    Yes, I have to. My mom is British and is really fixated on the six pence being in my shoe! Hahaha I thought it was so weird, but if it will make her happy, then I don’t care. 

    My Old – Grandma’s wedding band

    My New – Dress, purse, veil hahaha

    My Borrowed – Handkerchief

    My Blue – Hankerchief has blue embroidery

    I think the sixpence is an irish thing. I may be mistaken.  I have a lot of old/new things, nothing borrowed or blue.  But i dont really care.

    I had the sixpence in my bouquet.  My something blue was my garter, something borrowed was a bracelet and something new was my dress.  I actually didn’t give it much thought.

    I’m going to try to have them all, the dress will of course be new, my shoes will probably be blue, I will wear a jewelry piece for something old and my Maid/Matron of Honor is lending me her bridal hanky for my something borrowed.

    @MASPA:  Yeah it could be. I don’t know. Really my mom came to Canada when she was 12, so she may not even really know. She is so NOT traditional, but with this wedding I’m learning so much tradition that apparently she loves. Ha! It’s so weird to me.

    Mine all just kind of fell together:

    Something old: Earrings from my grandmother

    Something new: My dress!

    Something borrowed: my sister’s veil

    Something blue: the something blue Tom’s

    My family had actually never heard of the Sixpence until the consultant at the dress shop told us about it, and I am not doing it

    I’m doing it for fun. Not because I’m superstitious or think it holds value.

    I’m English but determined to have a non traditional wedding. So no something old etc, no speeches, I’m walking alone down the aisle, no bouquest toss, no cake cutting. Need I go on?

    Its all about a simple ceremony and celebrating with family n friends

    My mom was obsessed with me having all my “somethings” so I tried my best to get them all.

    Something blue: my shoes

    Something new: dress, veil, and jewlery

    Something borrowed: my sister’s ring

    Something old: that is the one where we kind of exaggerated, how old does something need to be to be old? haha
