I’m not doing any of it. I just don’t want one more thing to have to worry about getting together before the wedding.

I didnt! I had some aspects (like my mom had a garter made for me out of her wedding dress- old/borrowed?!) but didnt worry about having those things! I kind of bucked the traditions for my wedding though, I think lots of them are outdated- no bouquet or garter toss for us either!

Nope. Although my gown was new, I’ll bet other clothes were old.

We married in the late 1970s – almost 40 years later and still going strong!

I didn’t do any of it. Then again, I wasn’t really interested in doing anything traditional whatsoever.

I’m not planning on it. Neither of our mothers had traditional white weddings(went to JoP) so there is nothing old to use or to borrow.

Old: For old I am wrapping my flower stems in a tie from my grandpa who passed away New: Dress and shoes Borrowed: Probably a ring (Alexanderite that is sometimes blue)  or pearls from my grandma and Blue: The bottoms of my shoes.

I understan the no stress but it’s not that hard. I have everything in my brooch bouquet. The dress is new. Old is the hard part. I have my grandmother dimond errings. Blue shoes and a borrowed necklance. Plus all of that is in the bouquet. I made an effort. Now other traditions I skipped. Like the garter wearing and toss. I do not want to wear one because who does. Also I do not want my Fiance under my dress for all to see. I think it is tacky

summerbride2016:  Nope, didn’t have it! I did wear my grandmother’s veil (old… and kind of borrowed?), and my dress was new. Didn’t have anything blue. I bought a blue garter but didn’t wear it in the end.

I didnt have old or borrowed. I couldnt even think of anything I would use for either. I bought blue underwear though just for kicks

You’ve forgotten the coin. The poem goes, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.” I don’t know a single bride that’s included one in her outfit, and I dont have one at the moment. If I can find one, I’ll include it, but it won’t bug me to go without. My something old will be my ring, something new is shoes, something borrowed will hopefully be my fh’s grandmother’s tiara, and something blue is my Kimber micro Bel Air
