There’s no harm in going to look for them!  Does a woman in your family have a great piece of jewelery you love?  Just ask!  The worst they can say is no.  I asked to borrow my mother’s sapphire bracelet for my something blue!

My something old was the sixpence my grandmother & mother wore in their shoe the day they got married, it was also my borrowed.

Any antique stores? You could always pick up a little pin or a ring or something for something old. There’s no saying it has to be from your family.

haha… one of my bridesmaid’s happened to have an old, blue dolphin necklace. I borrowed it and stuck it in my bra. New was my dress… or anything else associated with the wedding. My mother-in-law was supposed to give me something old, but she failed at that similarly to her other failures. So, glad I had my besties with me.

for something old i askd my mom to barrow one of my grandmothers pearl necklaces, she had passed recently and i know my mom wouldnt think of it so i figured i might as well ask n see. I also want to do the 6 pence in the shoe or whateder the last little bit is at the end. I think its going to be hard to find. If you type it into google they have some good descriptions of how they started any why they stuck. Its an interesting read!

@Sea_Ashley:  Absolutely!!  

 

And now that you know how this is making you feel, you can make some heirlooms of your own for your daughter!

I was wondering about the something borrowed as well… until I remembered that my mum made a folk dress when she was young (from scratch, even weaving the fabric). The dress comes with a beautiful hear band, which she wore for her own wedding day. So I’ll ask her if I can borrow it for mine.

 

Perhaps you know someone that has an item that you would want to incorporate in your wedding style? In that case, don’t hesitate to ask – I think most people would love to be approached with a question like that!

 

As for something old, do you have some old jewellery you could use? I’ll be wearing my grandpas wedding band as a necklace.
