What are you girls using?
I think new is easy for everyone. Pretty much everything youre wearing is new. I have a ring that has an aquamarine stone. its very vintage looking and will be perfect with the earrings that i bought on etsy last night! Could i double the ring as my something old too? or is that bad juju? haha 🙂 i have absolutely no idea for my something borrowed & other than the ring, im kind of at a loss for something old.
i would love to hear your plans for the big day!! 🙂

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 😉

Old – a locket that belongs to my grandma and a lace hankie that she carried on her wedding day
new – dress, shoes, etc
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?

- Wedding: April 2011 - AnthonyÃ¢Â€Â™s Fine Dining
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?)

i love everyone’s different ideas. My current engagement ring was my grandmothers, but ill be getting a new bridal set so i wasnt planning on wearing it that day. (b/c im wearing the ring with the aquamarine on my right hand already). i talked to my mom about something old yesterday. Her wedding dress was all lace & i asked if she would be okay with cutting a few inches off so i could either wrap it around my bouquet or sew it into my dress.
now all i need is borrowed!?

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:

NEW: Dress, Shoes, etc

BORROWED: Grandmother’s pearl necklace (she wore on her wedding day) & the six pence that goes in the shoe (from mom)
BLUE: the hankie mentioned before (and just in case the doubling doesn’t count), blue underwear
SIX PENCE: Mom has the sixpence

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).
