I was supposed to have my grandmother’s antique pearl bracelet as my something old but my Mum forgot to pack it.  So in the end, as I ripped 4 pairs of stocking trying to put them on on the morning of the wedding, my something old was a pair of tights I stole off my friend (her trusty emergency pair which she always carries with her “just in case”…


That will make a beautiful garter – will you incorperate the something blue into it as well?

love the lace, it;s so pretty! You’ll have to post the garter once it’s made.

My something old is my ering… I lost my original 6 months ago and Fiance bought me a new one for valentines day. Then I find my original this past sunday. So I’m going to wear them both, one on each hand, as my something old, something new! πŸ˜›

Just out of interest, how do you know it’s ‘antique’? Sorry, just seen a lot of ‘antique’ and ‘vintage’ stuff lately on Etsy that was rather questionable.

And I’m hoping to have a piece of my late grandmother’s jewelery or a special trinket for the day, even if it’s just to tuck into my bouquet or bodice. I would like something of hers with me on the day.

I’ve got two things, one from each grandmother.

On my dad’s side – a clutch/purse in ivory with silver threading, from the 50s. It’s been in our china cabinet since I can remember, and was given to me (along with the china cabinet) when I bought my house. I never knew that grandmother, she passed away when my dad was a teenager.

On my mom’s side – an art-deco style crystal brooch that will be part of my fascinator/headpiece. She had several of them, and left them to my sister and I when she passed away in November.

Aside from both of them being beautiful pieces, it means the world to have rememberances of my grandmothers as part of my day.

so far..the only “old” I have is the slip under my dress. I am hoping to find something more… idk…something lol. It just occured to me I don’t have a “something blue” yet.

This is a bracelet from my dad’s side (he is Chinese) and is a wedding bracelet, the symbol is the double happiness symbol and is for good luck. I’m acutally going to attach this around my bouqet.

I’m also going to wrap some pieces of lace from my grandmother’s/mother’s dress around my bouqet as well.

My florist is pinning my late grandmother’s brooch to the ribbons on my bouquet stem.  My mom also gave me a small VFW poppy pin (a gold pin with a picture of a poppy on it, not the little red poppies that they sell to passersby!), but I’m not at all sure what to do with it.  I might pin it inside my dress or ask my florist to tuck it somewhere in my bouquet.

That’s pretty lace.

I’m cutting a piece out of my mom’s wedding dress and sewing it into mine, on the inside.  She and my dad have been married for over 45 years. πŸ™‚

My mother has a set of Tiffanys pearls she got from her father from her 16th birthday.  I will be wearing the necklace and potentially the earrings based on how it looks with my hair style!
