I know there have to be posts on this already…but I’m going to start a new one. 🙂
This was one thing that…for some reason…I thought would be really fun to incorporate into our wedding and I’d love to hear what others will be or have used for their weddings!!
- Something old – I will be tying my fiance’s father’s 300 ring (he passed before I could meet him…only about 4 months before my fiance and I met) and my late grandfather’s military pins (who’s birthday we are marrying on) around my bouquet.
- Something new – My dress.
- Something borrowed – My mom is letting me borrow a pair of her diamond earrings to wear.
- Something blue – My bouquet will have some blue flowers included.
Can’t wait to hear of others!! 🙂

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.

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 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 🙂 I was really happy with my jewellery that day 😀
