My mom put together these for me and gave them to me the night before the wedding. Each one had a sweet poem attached to it – made me cry hysterically

Old-My grandmothers wedding ring (who I never had the chance to meet)

New-My mom made me a purse

Borrowed – My mom’s wedding handkerchief

Blue – bead on my bouquet charm (which held both of my grandparents wedding pictures)

You can see most of my “somethings” in this picture! My something old was my great-grandmother’s cameo (pinned to my bouquet), something new was my dress (not pictured, haha), something borrowed was my pearl bracelet, and something blue was my little blue ring (wedding day gift from DH).

Cool post.

Old – a vintage handkerchief from the 1940s with my first name initial embroidered on it

New – my jewelry

Borrowed – my mom gave me a pearl earring my stepdad gave her when they were in the earlier stages of their marriage. She lost its twin in a public restroom. She thought I could use it in my bouquet.  Instead, I had my jeweler make it into a necklace that I will be “giving back” to her at the reception 

Blue – the initials of my maiden name will be embroidered on the inside hem of my dress
