    I’m sure it’s fine to wear the items for the ceremony only.  Honestly, I didn’t even bother with something borrowed.  I had the new, blue, and old (a silver sixpence), but I forgot to put it in my shoe.

    Either way, you’ll be married!

    Good girl, you are totally overthinking!! What will happen if you take off the ring? Will the wedding police arrest you? Will your marriage fail because you took off your something borrowed? Of course not! Wink

    There are no rules. It’s just a tradition, not the law. You can do whatever you feel is best for you! A lot of people don’t even do that “something old, blue,…” thing.

    My something borrowed was a ring as well and i took it off after the ceremony because it didn’t fit properly and started to hurt. Nothing bad happened so far :))

    Does the something borrowed count if I was given a string of pearls when FI’s mom passed away? Or is that something old?

    If you do take off your grandmothers ring/watch just make sure you give them to someone to keep them safe. The wedding day is such a wirlwind its so easy to forget about things. It would be terrible if you took them off because you didn’t want to damage them and then they got left behind somewhere.

    My something old was the sleeve of my Grandma’s wedding dress that I had wrapped around my bouquet. So I didn’t carry it all night, really just for the ceremony. I wouldn’t worry about it.
