Hmm… I am not sure if there is a right answer to this question! I’m clipping my grandpa’s tie clip (he has passed) to my bouquet and that’s my something old. i believe it’s from the 50s!

I have two something olds:

(1) The bonnet from my baptism that, with the removal of a couple stitches, turns into a hankerchief. It will be almost exactly 28 years old.

(2) My late grandmother’s antique silver watch. I’m guessing it’s from the 1930s…so ~80 years old.

I don’t think there’s necessarily a rule for how old the something old has to be though 🙂

My something old is only 20 years old or so.  It’s my sister’s rosary that she got for her communion.  Mine was stolen last year when our house was broken into so I am using hers. 

I was wondering too how old is old.

I definitely don’t think there’s any rule. As long as you have significance to it, a day “old” can be your old!

My old was my mom’s dress. It was 32 years old when I got married.

I don’t have my something borrowed or blue but I’m wearing older shoes because they’re already broken in and work with everything already but still look new. I haven’t decided yet but I’m either wearing or cliping a pin to my bouquet from my very close friend (who was like my father) who passed away 2 years ago.

My something old was my great-great-grandmother’s engagement ring.  Its very old, obviously. But I think the idea is that it be something that is intergenerational – like something from your parents, aunt, their parents. Or from your fiance’s family.

my something old is my great grandmother’s earrings, and maybe her necklace but that might be too much going on.  my something blue is the blue ribbon lacing up the corset in my dress, my something borrowed is my mom’s pearl necklace worn as a bracelet and her diamond earrings worn in my 2nd piercings, and my something new is my dress.  yay to tradition!!

When I was a kid, my mom gave me her white bobby pins from when she got married.  Naturally, I lost them, but I still have one and that is going to be my something old.
