My something old was my great grandmother’s art deco style bracelet.  Gorgeous, and perfect with my dress.  

My something new was my dress, as well.  

Something borrowed…. I wrapped my bouquet with one of my grandfather’s ties that I borrowed from my grandmother.  He passed away just before my wedding.  

My something blue was a handkerchief for my bouquet that had my new monogram on it in blue stitching to match my wedding colors and blue flowers in the bouquet.

Old: My grandmother on my dad’s side had a prayer book in her bouquet holder and I will have that book and hopefully the holder if it works out.

New: My dress and wedding jewelry

Borrowed: My mom’s garter 

Blue: My grandmother on my mom’s side gave me a sapphire and diamond ring when I was 17 and I am having it redesigned into a thin band RHR – I am so excited about this!

Something Old: My Necklace (a simple gold chain- not sure how old, at least since I was little) and shoes (several years old), and my grandmother’s bangles, which is also my something borrowed.

Something New: My dress, hair piece, earrings.

Something Borrowed: I borrowed my grandmother’s gold bangles (that was given to my mom and that eventually will go to me). Since she lives overseas and due to health is unable to come, I think she would love that.

Something Blue: I knew I wanted to pin’s my dog’s collar tag (since she passed away) to my bouquet, and I didn’t have a something blue. I actually didn’t even remember at all that the tag was blue because she rarely wore her collar. I found her collar and looked at the tag and chills went up my spine because it was blue! It was meant to be <3 <3

and I have a sixpence for my shoe ^_^

Something old: photos of my grandparents on their wedding days stored in my something borrowed! I lost my grandmother last month, so sadly none of my grandparents are with us any more.

Something new: my dress

Something borrowed: a gold locket that was my grandmother’s that’s now my mother’s

Something blue : a little blue bow attached to the locket.

The locket is going to be on a pin and attached to my bouquet

I love the idea of wearing your father’s ring, that’s gonna be so special. 


Old: My great-grandmother’s sapphire and diamond bracelet. 

New: My grandmother’s aquamarine, which I’ve had recut and re-set into a new setting

Borrowed: My grandmother’s pearl necklace, which floats around my family from person to person. 

Blue: One of my wedding bands is alternating sapphire and diamond, and my great-grandmother’s bracelet is sapphire and diamond, and my grandmother’s aquamarine is blue-green-ish. I’m toying with the idea of wearing navy blue shoes.

  • Wedding: June 2017 - A vineyard

I basically did it all with my jewellery. I was allowed to borrow a really lovely sapphire and diamond set from a close family member so it was my borrowed/old/blue all at once. My new was my dress and the pearl necklace I was given by a friend as a wedding present πŸ™‚ I was really happy with my jewellery that day πŸ˜€

300bride :  Something new – my bridal shoes

                 Something old – a silver love knot ring that my Mom gave me years ago

Something blue – I think, my bridal garter belt has some blue but I’m not for sure. If not, I’ll sew a small piece of              blue material on it. 

                Something borrowed-  I don’t know what that will be but I’m sure I can borrowed something before our big day.

I have a sixpence to put in my shoe that is really cute.
