@Jenlon:  Glad I’m not the only one with a loose interpretation of the word “old”!  The only thing I could think of was a pair of pearl earrings that Darling Husband gave me at our first christmas together.  So that was about 5.5 years old at the wedding.  My mom didn’t keep any of the stuff from her wedding except the dress.  Hmm, and I just realized I never asked  my Mother-In-Law if she had anything I could use.

My something old was my great-great grandmothers handkerchief (roughly 90 yrs old) which was also a part of my something borrowed. Two for one if I do say so myself, and one hell of a hankie that has many silent stories from over the years.

My something old will be my grandmother’s rhinestone necklace that I actually wore 22 years ago to the prom. She passed away a year ago and we found it among her things so my family decided that it should go to me. I thought it would be a nice touch because a piece of her will be there. Since I’m not sure how old it actually is I can say that it is atleast 30 years old.

I’m wearing my grandmother’s engagement stones. I got it as a gift from my aunt when I turned 18. It has a small diamond and 2 sapphires I’m getting it reset into a better setting with white gold. I have no idea it was old but it counts as 2 of my list.

I don’t know how old my something old is.  But it will be my something old and something blue.  My grandmother recently passed away and my cousin thought I would like to have one of her rosaries.  She gave me a blue delicate rosary that actually matches my wedding colors perfectly. I’m not Catholic but my Groomsmen was and her Catholic faith was very important to her.  I will wrap it around my bouquet so that a part of her will be with me on my wedding day(she was very excited about my wedding and was gonna travel with my parents to be there).

My something old is also something borrowed. It is my sister’s diamond bracelet that my Mom gave her on her wedding day. It is from 1970s

I’m not a traditional person, but I did something old because it was really easy for me. I wore my half sister’s ring on my right pinkie – she died when I was three, she was 17. It was a nice way to include her without having to annouce the situation to people who didn’t know.
