I’m still not completely convinced on mine but: 

1) New: dress

2) Old: One of my grandma’s rings, hanging on the bouquet

3) Borrowed: still looking

4) blue: lingerie and garter.

So far, this what I have so far:

Old: Button from my mom’s wedding dress sewn on to my own

New: My dress

Borrowed: not sure yet….. working on it

Blue: I’m thinking an aquamarine ring (It’s my birthstone). Also there will be blue in my bouquet

Old: Still trying to figure out something old. It may be the lace from my grandmother’s mantilla sewn onto the mantilla she is going to be helping me make!

New: My dress and shoes

Borrowed: most likely my grandmother’s jewlery she wore for their 50th wedding anniversary party- It’s beautiful diamonds and pearls set.

Blue: My orange and Blue polka dot Garter!

I am wondering who takes care of this.  Does the bride take care of this along with her mother? I am thinking I should tell my mother that I want to follow this tradition.  I am thinking that the something old will be my shoes, the dress will be new, the borrowed will be a piece of jewelry for my mom, and the old will be a brooch to put on my bouquet.

I have no idea what I’m doing for most of it.

Something old?

Something new…my dress

Something borrowed?

Something blue…Fiance will not tell me what it is and assures me I will love it and not to worry…but he is taking care of this. Yeah, I’m a little nervous. LOL

I LOVE sapphires, waived on getting a sapphire e-ring so I’m hoping it something sapphire-y.  🙂

i plan to do this but i kept getting stuck on the something blue…the usuals liek shoes and garter wont work…i have my garter and its a NY jets one so its green and white, and i dont think i would want to do blue shoes with my dress….but i just had an idea to maybe have the florist tuck in a blue flower somewhere in the bouquet thats not real obvious. i went to wedding not long ago where the bride painted her toes a light blue, cute idea but i dont plan to do that.

new will be alot of things…my dress, my shoes, jewelry, veil, etc.

old, im not sure yet. borrowed is tough too, but i think i will see if my grandma has something sentimental that i can use…which could maybe be old and borrowed.

Something new: I think Ill probably do shoes or if I end up getting blue shoes then Ill say my dress

Something borrowed: Either FSILs wedding jewelry or her diamond studs

Something blue: possibly shoes if I think theyll go with my dress, if not then probably a blue garter or lingerie
