I wasn’t overly concerned with it – but all those things kind of fell naturally into place.  I ended up wearing lacy blue undies (cause I wanted them anyway)

new: earrings

borrowed: i didn’t wear it- but I borrowed my mom and dad’s cake cutter- it was very sentimental as theirs was engraved and it just had more meaning for me.

old: diamond in my engagement ring, was my g’mas.

(and no penny in my shoe- that would have just been uncomfortable)

Eh, don’t worry about it =)  You don’t ‘have to’ do anything you don’t want to!  My dress was blue, and I guess my underwear was old, the rest was all new, but that was all by coincidence and I didn’t have anything borrowed =)

See http://www.indiebride.com or http://www.offbeatbride.com for all kinds of non-standard weddings 🙂  They were a big help (and comfort) to me when I was planning!

borrowed – My veil…

I’m super non-traditional, but I think I like that tradition just because it’s fun. If it’s not something you’re into, I wouldn’t worry about it. I think most things you’ll just end up with…like something old and new (unless you bought all of your stuff). I think the only one that isn’t just a part of what I’m wearing is something borrowed, so I might borrow something from someone like my mom or something. I don’t think it’s really that huge of a tradition.
