    I don’t care about it, but my mom does. I voted that I don’t care, but I will most likely be doing it.

    I voted that I don’t care because I actually don’t have all of the items, lol.  Nothing old, new wedding dress, nothing borrowed, and two blue sapphires in my e-ring.  I guess borrowed would be if I rented my wedding jewelry…and old?  No idea…

    Not really, but in my cynical point of view: it’s supposed to be good luck, and in something that has traditionally had a 50% failure rate, I will take extra good luck if it’s easily gained.

    I can’t vote because I’m in between. I don’t care about it that much, but I think it’s cute. I’ll probably do it, but it’s not a do-or-die issue.

    yeah, I’ll possibly end up having each other items but not due to purposely following the tradition/superstition. I don’t really care either way.

    @bowsergirl:  +1, it’s cute, but not essential.  Plus, in the US, we don’t even include the “and a sixpence in her shoe” part.

    No, I dont really care, but I’m going to have them so people will shut up about it and stop offering me things every time I’m asked what they are lol.

    I don’t think it’s a huge deal, but I think it’s sorta fun. It’s not as dumb as the throw the bouquet and garter traditions. I didn’t really do it to a tea, but it’s a fun idea.

    Yes and no.  I didn’t have a something borrowed until the day before the wedding (mainly because I didn’t think it was a big deal if I didn’t have all of the things), but by wedding day I did have all 4 by chance.

    I don’t really care about it but I’m doing it. Easy enough since my e-ring is blue, my dress will be new, and I already have an antique necklace that I’m wearing. For borrowed I’m going to try to borrow my grandmother’s wedding ring that was also HER grandmother’s wedding ring, because I think that would be cool to have it go back that far at family weddings. I don’t know if I would have thought of that if not for the tradition but it would be meaningful outside of it as well and I think my grandmother will like the idea.

    Yes!

    I think it’s a really sweet tradition.

    I would keep it when it’s my turn to make a decision.

    Did it for my first marriage.

    Do I really need to say I didn’t for my second?
