I haven’t picked anything for sure yet, but I’m planning to ask my grandmother if she has a necklace that goes with my dress that I could wear.  🙂

You don’t want to tip someone off…but it should be special…I would ask my Mom to borrow a necklace of hers that I liked…that way she’s kind of there with you…

Or you could ask your best friend….I don’t know, someone your close to…if it were me I would borrow something funny, cause that’s how I am…or if I had already borrowed something from someone and hadn’t returned it yet, I would take that with me…that could get weird though…what if you borrowed someone’s copy of Four Weddings and a Funeral…what would you do with that?  Or a tupperware container…you could like, keep the rings fresh in it…maybe you borrowed a purse from someone…?  It depends on your sense of humor I guess…

I wanted all of my “somethings” to be things I could wear and have on my person. My next door neighbors were the only ones who knew we were eloping because they were going to dogsit for me. So when we eloped, I had:

old: brooch I attached to my bouquet

new: my wedding shoes (boots) and also my necklace/earrings/bracelet

borrowed: a “good luck” penny from my next door neighbor that I put in one of my boots

blue: garter my neighbor made for me


Could you borrow a pretty hair pin from someone? Or borrow a pin, locket, etc. that you can pin to your bouquet or inside of your dress.

I thought borrowed item has to be from someone who has been happily married for decades (never divorced) to rub off as a good luck charm for your own starting marriage. I used one of my Mom’s rings that she gave me at some point and pretended (we eloped too) it is borrowed  since she was the only woman I knew with a happy marriage with over 35 years of bliss.

I don’t have a “borrowed” for tomorrow, but I’m not concerned. It would be cute, though.  I never heard about borrowing it from someone with a long happy marriage, though. That would probably explain my divorce! 😉  I borrowed from the wrong family friend!!!!

I borrowed my MILs wedding shoes. It would probably look a little suspicious to ask to borrow someone’s shoes though. I like the idea of jewlry or something like that that you’ve always liked.

 Something old: My irish linen handkerchief my grandmother made for me.

something new: My necklace which will be a monogram of my new initials

something borrowed: My twin’s spider brooch, which will be in my boquet

Something blue: The blue sapphire my mother gave me from her collection, when I was 21. And the tiffany draw string bag, my wedding band comes in.

And my lucky silver sixpence someone tipped me years ago at work will be in my shoe.
