    I did the tradition, but wasn’t obsessed with it. It just all kind of fell into place.

    My Darling Husband had purchased me a right hand ring as a gift that day, it was my new, although I had planned just to use my dress until that point

    My something blue were my fantastic shoes 🙂

    My something old was the sleeve to my Granmother’s dress. We cut it off and used it as a bouquet wrap.

    My something borrowed was from DH’s family. I wasn’t sure what to do so I asked my Future Mother-In-Law. She gave me her mother’s promise ring to wear that day. I was honored as DH’s grandmother was so important to him. I had never met her, she passed prior to me meeting Darling Husband, but somehow it made me feel like we had her blessing. That’s it on top of our invitation:

    I’m doing it for fun and tradition, but not because I feel it’s required.


    something old – a ring I inherited from my grandma when she passed away

    something new – my dress, wedding bands, etc.

    something borrowed – my mom’s pearl necklace

    something blue – still working on this one, I have ideas, but it’s not finalized yet

    lol. I wasn’t sure on doing the whole thing either! 


    I have most things:

    Something Old: Grams watch she gave me before she passed away.

    Something New: Necklace most likely..I mean the dress shoes and everything else can fall under that one.

    Something Borrowed: Just going to ask someone for anything they may not need. I know my Maid/Matron of Honor will have something. lolz.

    Something Blue: Ribbon around my Bouquet/or my Earrings

    _____Heres the tricky part: “6 pence in her left shoe” Or something likened to that.______Seems like many brides don’t know that line or forewent it?

    I am debating on the coin thing myself.

    My ‘somethings’ were as follows:

    OLD: a piece of lace from my great-great-grandmother’s wedding dress pinned to my tulle

    NEW: pretty much everything – dress, jewelry, hair flower, veil, etc.

    BORROWED: my mother-in-law lent me her diamond tennis bracelet

    BLUE: Well technically, my to-die-for wedding shoes were “midnight blue” per the manufacturer, even though they looked purple to me – so just to be safe, I wore blue undies too! LOL!
