In your opinion, how old would something have to be for you to consider it “old”?
I’ll probably wear one of the rings I inherited from my grandmother (original art-deco style, so it’s probably from the 30s).
How old is your “something old”? 10 years? 25 years? 50 years? 100 years?

Haven’t thought about it yet, but your ring sounds like a lovely idea.

Mine was not that old, just something that my grandmother owned.

My greatgrandmothers watch. I think from 40’s or 50’s.

Mine will be the sash from my mom’s wedding dress, so it’s about 30 years old.

25 years old. It’s a diamond necklace that my dad gave to my mom the day I was born. He gave it to her for me to wear on my wedding day 🙂 Luckily, it’s gorgeous. Phew!

The idea is that you have a special something (usually a family piece–jewelry, handkerchief, bible) that had belonged to someone else.

I don’t think it really even has to be really old. Maybe just something that is by a couple of years and was passed down to you would do. But it is true, when I think something old, I think pretty darn old. Like Victorian or major vintage. 🙂 I think it is different for everyone.

I am clipping one of my late grandpa’s tie clips to my bouquet. I would say it’s about 60 years old.

So…is something from one of your family members not something borrowed?

Mine isn’t borrowed because it belongs to me now 🙂

I don’t think it has to be that old…to me it means something sentimental that wasn’t bought specifically for the wedding. Mine was a string of pearls Mother-In-Law gave me a few years ago. She had originally bought them for her own mother maybe 10 years ago, after her mother died she gave them to me. So they are DH’s grandmother’s pearls. His grandma was very important to him so for me this was a good thing to have, even though they weren’t *that* old. But grandma was old, does that count 🙂

I agree with mountain bride! As long as it has sentimental value, and you had it before the wedding, you’re in!
My something old is a garter I bought for my junior high school prom! So it’s only about 12 years old. 🙂

I’m using my mom’s vintage clutch purse from when she was younger as my something old. She loved the idea.
