cvaldes13:  I plan to ask my “aunts” if I can borrow something that belonged to their (deceased) mother. They aren’t really my aunts… they are my godfather’s sisters. Their parents had the most beautiful, loving relationship I’ve ever seen, so I feel like it would be good luck to have something of hers. I totally forgot to ask the last time I saw them all together (I want to ask them at the same time), so I’m going to ask at my bridal shower. Hopefully they agree and can find something because I have ZERO other ideas!

cvaldes13:  My older cousin has our grandmother’s engagement ring and gave it to me to wear as my something borrowed. She’s brought it out for all the weddings so far so it’s nice knowing that it’s been worn by our Nana (and I believe her mother…) but all of my older cousins that have been happily married for years!

I’m using my moms pearls. Her bestie got them back in the day in Germany. They are incredibly fragile, so after the ceremony I’m switching into my fake ones.

I also asked my grandma for something for my grandfather’s to use in my boquet. A shirt, something I can wrap or stick in. He has been gone for 16 years though, so not sure what she has laying around.

I have my Future Mother-In-Law prayer book, it has been used in every family wedding for a few generations. I am atheist though. You can use jewelry or something hidden in the bouquet

My something borrowed was a pearl bracelet my good friend let me use. It was a great final touch to my look.

I’d be more than willing to send my kid up for a weekend. 😛

My friend is borrowing a diamond necklace from me. It’s very dainty, with a single small diamond. It’s so fine that it can only be seen up close. I love it. She chose well!

I think traditionally your something borrowed is something from a lady who has had a long happy marriage (mom, aunt, grandmother)

My grandmother has requested to give me my something borrowed, and I asked her to find a brooch/pin with blue stones or enamel for my something borrowed and blue. I’m going to use it to attach my memorial charm of my dad to my bouquet.

I’m borrowing the hair comb a friend wore for her wedding. I’m also borrowing a cameo my father gave to my mother to put on my bouquet.
