Thank you for reminding me to do this! I almost forgot 😛

Old: Great grandmother’s bracelet

New: Wedding dress & earrings

Borrowed: Grandmother’s cameo brooch to clip on bouquet

Blue: Other grandmother’s blue flower earring to clip onto something…also possibly my shoes

Your something old is perfect! I’m using an old baby brooch I had when I was a baby (one of those cute old ones with your name engraved on it).

For your something borrowed, is there jewellery of your MIL’s that any of her children/siblings have that you could borrow for the day? What about any aunties that you could borrow something small from?

snowflake8:  My something old AND blue is an old star sapphire ring passed down to me from my great grandma.

My something borrowed is my FSILs veil that I’ll be using and my something new is my wedding band, or dress, or shoes. Haha

Old: grandma’s pearls (now mine so not borrowed)

New: dress, shoes, ring, whatever

Borrowed:  nothing that I know of, since I didn’t really try.  If I stretched it, I could say my mother’s time in making my headpiece or something 

Blue: aquamarine stone in my ring.  Also mom stuck a blue feather under all the orange ones on my headpiece – her own choice, hah.

Maybe your mom or a good friend has a regular ring you could wear that day as well?

For your something borrowed, I would ask to use a family heirloom/piece of jewelry.

Mine were:

Something Old: Heirloom Diamond ring given to me by inlaws. 

Something New: My diamond heart necklace DH gave me for the wedding

Something Borrowed: My aunt/godmother’s diamond ring 

Something Blue: I wore blue sapphire and diamond halo earrings and there are blue diamonds in my wedding bands.
