I’m strugging figuring out something old. My something borrowed is my grandma’s pearl ring for my right hand. I was thinking of wearing a pearl bracelet Fiance bought me last year. It’s not too old, but it wasn’t purchased for the wedding. Anyone think this could count?

I don’t really know the rules, but if it’s something from before the marriage, I would consider okay to use as something old. I’m curious also to find out the do’s and don’ts on these things.

I don’t think there’s a rule saying your something borrowed and something old can’t be the same thing. I’d think something old would be anything that is unquestionably old, to answer your question.

My inner child is resisting the urge to suggest “your momma!!!” so.hard!
My adult self will tell you my something old was also my something borrowed. My Mother-In-Law gave me her garter to wear, that her mother also wore on her wedding. In theory, I am borrowing it from the next generation (my child(ren)) so it fits both definitions. Do you have something similar?

To me, something old is something not brand new. I’d say either your grandmother’s ring counts, or the bracelet.
My old, borrowed, and blue will likely be the same ring that belonged to my great-grandmother, that is now my Mom’s, which will be mine someday. Though my engagement ring also counts (fiance’s great-grandmother’s ring).
