    Planned to but forgot the things on the wedding day.  Some were incorporated so they couldn’t be forgotten but not all, oh well.

    hmmm, I’m halfway there: the dress and jewelry are new; the shoes are borrowed.  If I happen to find something old and something blue, I will follow it, but if not, I will not go through the trouble of searching for it!

    Old: Does my longline bra count? I’ve had that for three years already. Is there a rule as to how old it should be? My earrings too. Otherwise, I’m thinking of wearing a set of pins attached with chains that I wore in my baby photos. I think I’ll wear it on my bra.

    New: Dress, necklace.

    Borrowed: Veil from one of my BMs

    Blue: The first piece of jewelry Fiance ever gave me, an opal and sapphire necklace I’ll carry on my bouquet or more safely on my bra.

    I don’t think I am.  I’m not very traditional or superstitious.

    On the table where people are siging the guest book I will have a collection of apothecary and bell jars and each one will hold something… old, new, borrowed, blue.

    I thought it would tie in with our eclectic, vintage theme =)

    Also as we were looking for a way to honor my mom and grandparents who have died, I am using things that were theirs.

    Oh I do I do …

    I have my something old – the necklace my grandmother wore for her engagement photos. It’s not the greatest, but I absolutely love it and it means alot to me.

    And I will have my something blue – I’m going with the perfect blue flats that look like pointe shoes ….

    I guess I could go with my dress or ring for something new but I’m not sold on that idea yet and I refuse to double up …

    As for something borrowed? That’s what mom’s for, I’m sure she’ll have something up her sleeve for that day!

    We are not having the traditional wedding so I didn’t feel the need to follow this particular one. I think everything that I will be wearing will be new.

    Almostduffy, that is a brilliant idea!

    I think I am going to do:

    Something old – my dress, I bought it secondhand

    Something new – my everything else practically

    Something borrowed – A jade bracelet my grandmother customed for my mother and gave her just before my grandmother passed. I am wearing it in rememberance of her.

    Something blue – My college roommates and I bought each other our something blue for each others wedding (we all wed within a year of each other, I am the last) and so they are giving me my something blue.

    I think that I will probably collect these things if I happen upon them, but I’m not going to stress out about them.  I will definitely not have a six pance in my shoe!
