I borrowed my great grandmother’s wedding ring (it was my something old) and my mom’s tennis bracelet.

what about a pin or a ring you can tie onto your bouquet? I know it made our families happy to be asked for something special to wear on my big day. I’ve also given up things to brides when I was the maid of honor. So maybe ask your BMs if your parents don’t have anything special for you to wear.

I have found that the “something borrowed” is something that just sort of happens sometimes.  I did not have anything either, and was super stressed about it.  My mom told me to just relax – that something would come through.  Sure enough, my Mother-In-Law pulled me aside at my rehearsal dinner and asked if I would wear her tennis bracelet.

My veil is borrowed, as are my earrings, which are also my something old, they were my great grandmother’s and my grandma is lending them to me.

Haha, I almost didn’t have one. As we were heading to the church, I frantically asked one of my BMs what I could borrow. She handed me her everyday necklace and said to wrap it around my ankle. Lol.

I didn’t stress over it before the day, because I knew in a pinch, I could just grab something from BM’s house and stuff it in my dress. The necklace was actually a lot more graceful than I was expecting my “something borrowed” to be. 😀

My mothers old brooch.  It was pinned into the ribbon that was wrapped around the base of my bouquet!

I’m wearing the same hairpiece my Mom wore at her wedding. It’s really pretty and suits my dress very well. I was going through boxes that I had borrowed from my parent’s house looking at old photos one day and came across the box with the hairpiece in it and mentioned it to my Mom. That same day she offered to let me wear it in my wedding! 🙂

Originally, my something borrowed was going to be a gorgeous antique ring that belonged to my great grandmother, and now my mother. Then my Maid/Matron of Honor told me her grandmother (one of the sweetest, most awesome people I’ve ever met) wanted to lend me the hankie she had at her wedding. I was so touched by this offer, I couldn’t refuse. So the ring became my something old and the hankie, my something borrowed. I just kept it in my handbag, but knowing it was there was really special, especially now because the dear lady it belonged to passed away a few months after the wedding.

Good luck finding your something!

I actually did not have anything borrowed, old, or blue. I joked that I just had, new, new, new, and new! 🙂 What’s funny about this is that I am actually pretty traditional. I had considered pinning to the inside of my gown a handkerchief from my grandmother that had blue in it. However, in the midst of the last minute wedding details, I just never really had time to think more about it.)
