Yes, new is easy… although my wedding dress isn’t new – I bought it off consignment


my old would be my collection of apothecary jars and vases for our dessert buffet, we’re getting all them from thrift stores like good will and salvation army!

I don’t have a blue yet either, or borrowed.

i have borrowed supplies to make some DIY projects if that counts as borrowed 😉

Borrowed – my mom’s veil and the little satin buttons from her dress

Blue – shoes and undies


I love this tradition.  : )

I saw this one website that had really cute blue toerings for brides. I thought that was a good idea

My new is my dress and shoes

My old is my grandmothers pearls

For Blue, I am going to get a right hand ring w/ blue stones

And I’m still not sure about borrowed. While I am borrowing the pearls from my mom, I was unsure about the “doubling use” issue as well.

I might try to borrow a pin to put on my boquet?

Fun topic, Mrs. Menard!

Old: the stone in my engagement ring is an heirloom

New: pretty much everything, but hopefully I’ll get a fun present from my groom and that can be it specifically 🙂

Borrowed: I caught the bouquet at my cousin’s wedding, and the guy who caught the garter had to put it on me…so I still have that.

Blue: my sorority’s badge has sapphires in it, and since 3 of my 6 bridesmaids are sorority sisters, I plan to put that somewhere (in my hair maybe?)

Whew.. glad to hear that I’m not the only one missing one category!  I’m busy looking for a blue right hand ring now.  Not sure if I want to go with more of a “band”, because I planned to wear my wedding ring on my right hand during the ceremony, or if I should just not worry about how those two rings look together, since my engagment ring will only be on that hand for a half hour.. I’ve been looking at rings like these:

but wonder if I should be looking for something more like this so that I don’t have too much bulk on the right hand:

Oh, I’m caught up in the double use, also, but I tripled it!

Old AND Borrowed AND blue. (Hankie)

For new: dress, shoes, etc.

And last, but not least, I do have a silver sixpence for my shoe! (which is both old (the age of the coin) and yet new to me).
