and a sixpence in her shoe
Did you follow the traditional rhyme for good luck on your wedding day? Or are you planning to? What were your old, new, borrowed, and blue items? Did you/Will you place a coin in your left shoe?

I didn’t do the the sixpence, but I did everything else. My old was my grandmother’s wedding dress sleeve that I used as my bouquet wrap, my new was a ring that Darling Husband gifted me that day, the borrowed was DH’s grandmother’s piece of jewelery, and I wore blue shoes.

I don’t care about many of the wedding traditions, but I love this one! It’s even gotten to the point where I have multiples of some because both my family and I have gotten carried away. 🙂
old-handkerchief that my grandmother and aunt carried at their weddings, passed down to me. Small golden medallion that my grandmother lent me to tie to my bouquet with an old, sweet love story behind it.
new– My gorgeous dress that I am completely in love with
borrowed– My mother’s pearl earrings and bracelet
blue– my toenails and the silk flower on a clutch I bought on etsy
and no coin in my shoe since I’ll be barefoot on a beach!

@dickinson: Maybe you could wear an anklet with a penny/sixpence charm- not that I am encouraging being overdone. 😉 I love the blue toenail idea! I am totally stealing that!
Also, do you happen to be an Emily Dickinson fan?

Something old- A wooden carved dove that my grandmother, mom and elder sister carried in their bouquets.
something new-my dress of course
something borrowed- I’m not sure yet lol
something blue– a bracelet that Fiance gave my our first X-mas together, haveing it wrapped around the base of my flowers
Dont think I will be doing the sixpence though. 🙂

@Eulalia: Good idea! Emily Dickinson is pretty amazing and I do admire her, but that’s not where my name came from.

Old: My grandpa’s old wedding band (he passed, and my grandmother is giving it to me :)) The man was seriously the master of bling (several gold watches. chains, and rings), but I’m honored to get the bling that was most important to him.
New: My dress
Borrowed: My mom’s and other grandma’s ring to put on my bouquet
Blue: Navy blue flats to match my girl’s dresses
