I already have my something new (plenty of new things I will wear for my wedding like hair pins, bra, barefoot jewelry, the dress, etc.), my something borrowed (sparkly earrings from my BFF) and my something blue (garter and rhinestone “I do” sticker for the soles of my shoes). But I’m having a hard time with the something old!
What was your something old? Or future brides, what do you plan to use for something old?

Apparently the something old is supposed to connect to your “old” family… so something that represents your family. I’m using either my mother’s pearls (haven’t picked a dress yet so don’t know if they’ll “go”) or my grandmother’s ring. Other options I considered were to carry a beaded purse my grandmother made with her mother (but it doesn’t go with my colors) or to put my other grandmother’s rosary around my bouquet (she got it for her first communion, gave it to my mom when mom married her son/my dad, mom gave it to me on my first communion) but I’m already sticking a million things on my bouquet!

my ‘old’ was my favouriute knickers… had considered wearing spanx but didnt want the drama of peeling them down to go for a wee – also wanted to wear something i KNEW was comfy…so decided to wear my fav leopard print undies. they are cute with a little bow on the back – hubby LOVED seeing them once the big white dress came off! 🙂 he still refers to them as my wedding knickers!

this is super cute.
My old will probably be a ring of my Mum or Grandmothers who have both passed and I’m going to sew a blue heart shaped piece of fabric from one of my Mum’s old t-shirts onto the inside of my wedding dress where my heart is 🙂

My Future Mother-In-Law asked if I could carry her families prayer book in my bouquet. It has been used th last 3 generations, I am not religous but am honored to be included. I am also taking a diamond from my grandmothers wedding ring to be made into a pendant for a necklace I wear daily.

These are all really nice ideas.
@weird_bunny: love it!!!
I didn’t think about putting something into my bouquet. That’s a great idea. Thanks!
Keep the ideas coming 🙂

As one to always buck tradition, I didn’t do/chose any of this, but since my gown, slip and shoes (ouch!) were new, and my undies were old, they would have to be the old part.

My Something Old was my garter. My mom made it out of material from her wedding dress. 🙂
I actually had a hard time with something borrowed, as I borrowed a basket from an aunt and uncle for our cards – but didn’t borrow anything to wear (which I believe is the tradition behind that saying). I did have a necklace of one of my Grandma’s that passed away 2 years prior on my bouquet, but that wouldn’t really be considered borrowing since I couldn’t give it back to her.

I’m doing old and borrowed together. My grandmother gave me my great-great grandmother’s wedding band, which I will be using as my own wedding band. It is so close to matching my e-ring band; it’s as if it was meant to be!

This always has me puzzled. Is the items supposed to be on the bride or just incorporated into the wedding? Can anyone answer this for me please?

My ‘something old’ was my moms wedding dress. 🙂 I had it altered to me, and it was very special to be able to wear that dress.
I realize that is not doable for everyone, I would suggest an old family ring, like PP suggested. That would be beautiful and sentimental.
