Was wondering what everyone has done or is doing for this.
At this point in time my new will be, dress and jewellery (my Mum bought me a pearl bracelet and earrings yesterday) 😉
My blue – garter
Need to get something old and borrowed. Can something be for both old and borrowed or do you have something for each of them?

I had my old and borrowed as the same thing – it was from my husband aunt – a hankerchief that all of the girls in the family pinned inside their dresses on their wedding day – I was so happy when she offered it up!

My Dress and shoes are my new. Something blue will be my undies and I have a blue brooch in my flowers. My something borrowed is a round crystal brooch that will also be on my flowers. Then my something old is my veil.

Old — My (sadly deceased) grandmother’s earrings. My aunt offered Grandma’s entire box of earrings for me to choose from. Grandma never had her ears pierced, so all of them were clip-ons. When I chose the pair I would wear, Fiance gently pulled off the clip-on back, and I strung them on pearls and a regular earring back, to make a beautiful pair of dangly earrings!
New — My dress
Borrowed — Not quite decided yet, probably either a bracelet or a pair of second-hole earrings from one of my bridesmaids
Blue — My sapphire engagement ring!

My Something Old – Is a small family bible. It is a family tradition for the bride to carry a bible with ribbons strung through it in place of a bouquet. So I will be caring the bible. That was carried by my great great grandmother, her daughter, her daughter, her daughter and now me.
My Something New – My Dress, My undergarments 🙂 …
My Something Barrowed – My mother’s bracelet that is a match to the necklace I will be wearing.
My Something blue – My shoes.
And I will have 6 pence in my shoe too.

New – my wedding ring

Old: A silk handkerchief that every bride in my family has carried on their wedding day.
New: My dress
Borrowed: My mothers aquamarine ring that she is insisting I wear though I dont know if I’ll end up wearing it (its gold and everything else I’ll be wearing is silver). If not, I’ll probably just borrow some diamond jewelry from my Aunt or grandmother.
Blue: I’m also doing the “I Do” blue gems on the bottom of my shoes.
