    As long as you’re comfortable with it, I don’t think it really matters exactly how old something is.  Plus, it’s a great idea to include the tulle frm the costume!

    There aren’t any rules! It can be whatever YOU want it to be!

    I voted other because I don’t think it matters. I think I’ll wear a pair of earrings my Future Mother-In-Law gave me for Christmas this past year and use them as my something old, and why not? They are “old” – as in, not purchased specifically for the wedding.

    I think something from your childhood is “old” enough.  There’s no cutoff age for how old your “something old” has to be.  What really matters is that it signifies something, and has special meaning.  Your mom saved a cherished part of your childhood.  Wrap that bouquet with memories.

    I don’t think there are (or should) be any rules, but when I think of “something old”, I think of something that is or was from another person in your family.  For example, my something old is going to be a length of satin fabric from my grandmothers 65-year-old wedding dress, which my mom also wore in 1984.  The satin will be used a bouquet wrap and since there are five granddaughter, we’re having the dress cut up into five portions, so each of us can use our Nonnie’s dress to wrap our bouquets.  The dress is dated and also torn from when someone stepped on it while my mom was dancing during her wedding, so none of us would wear it realistically.  This way, it’s old, and also sentimental from a family member.

    I definitely think that something old could also be from your childhood, the only thing that matters is it has some meaning and importance to you
