I would think your bouquet would count. I mean, you do hold it for most of the day.

I’ve never heard of having to have them attached to you! Granted, I don’t know a lot about wedding traditions, but I think if you want the bouquet to count it should. It’s all in the name of superstition anyway!

I have never heard they had to be attached to you either.  I have seen some beautiful blue brooches attached to bouquettes.

I think they definitely don’t have to be attached to you. My “old” were my grandparents wedding rings that were tied to my bouquet. And my “blue” was Ralph Lauren Blue – the perfume! Honestly, I think you can do whatever you want 🙂

@candy apple:  Yeah, I think you can do whatever you want… if you’re in the spirit of the tradition, that’s all that matters, I’d say. I can’t imagine someone would tell you you’re not following the “rules”!

@redheadem:  Exactly! And really, you don’t even need to tell people what they are if you don’t want 😉 As long as whatever it is is meaningful to you, then go for it, I say.

I just had a blue button sewn to the inside of my dress. That way, if you find something you want blue (like the bouquet), it doesn’t matter, but if you don’t, you’re still covered.

I’ve been told that each “something” has to be seperate as in you can’t have your something old and borrowed be the same thing.  But my something old and blue are going to be my grandmothers handkercheif that she embroidered with blue flowers.  My second something blue is my shoes but they are teal blue and not the true blue I wanted so like a PP said I think if you consider it to be your “something” than that’s all that matters. I think if there were more strict rules to follow about the tradition than the saying would be “Something old on your hand, Something new on your head, Something borrowed on your leg, Something blue on your feet” lol or whatever people are saying these “somethings” need to be.
