Something old: still working on it

Something new: dress, veil, shoes, headpiece lol, have this one covered!!

Something borrowed: still working on this one as well, and I’m running out of time!! lol

Something blue: I have an interesting garter belt that actually has 5 small glass vials on it…the something blue is from the unity ceremony we are doing. One of the sand colors is blue so filled one of the vials with the blue sand.

(couldn’t find a pic so here’s the link to where I ordered my garter:

Something Old: My Mother’s wedding band. It doesn’t fit her any more (age and arthritis!) and it didn’t particularly fit to start with. But it fits me like a GLOVE! I love that it is the symbol of their marriage, all of the troubles they have been through and how they are still going strong. It is also the biggest blessing they could have given my Fiance and I.


Something New: Dress/shoes. 


Something Borrowed: My Mum’s garter! Though we aren’t doing a garter toss, it is a sweet, small, private gesture.


Something Blue: From my one of Dad’s blue shirts, a heart shaped patch will be taken, and sewen onto the back of my dress.

Something old: My nan’s family ring. It’s also blue.

Something new: Pretty much anything. 

Something borrowed: My recently deceased future MIL’s bracelet. It’s currently in my daughter’s closet hung to watch over her. I will borrow it for the day.

Something blue: I will get the bridal party to sign the bottom of my shoes.

Something old:  My mother-in-law land me a old (about 30 years of age) single gold earing in a heart shape that I have attached to my gartner. (Work as well for something barrowed)

Something new: Everything; the dress, the veil, the shoes…etc!

Something barrowed; The old heart shape single earing my mother-in-law land-me.

Something Blue: The ribbon on my gartner.

For the sixpences, I kept thinking about it but sixpences are quite difficult to find in Canada so I might be placing a 5 cents instead in my shoes for the whealth.

Something old: I have two- my wedding band, which has been in my mom’s family for over 100 years (i will be the third to wear it as a wedding ring) and my handkerchief, which has been in FI’s family for just as long and has patches of two other people’s dresses sewn on.

Something new: pretty much everything I’m wearing 🙂

Something borrowed: still working on this one- I’m hoping to get something from either my mom or my granny, but I don’t really know what…

Something blue: my engagement ring (has sapphires in it), and the handkerchief (one of the women who used it had a blue dress)

I love the amount of family history from both sides that will be with me on that day, just gotta get on that something borrowed bit, ugh!

I did all of them, too! But in Irish culture, it’s a “5 pence in your shoe”

My something new: dress and earrings

borrowed: veil

blue: blue lace thong

and old is this “magic hankey” my grandmother got me before I was born. It was my Christening bonnet, and my mom wrapped it up and gave it to me at my shower. It’s strange but, you start the poem on the right side then, then read the left-side pannel. Of course, I cried at my shower—and I wrapped it around my boquet for my wedding day.
