I’ll be wearing my mum’s garter from when she and my dad got married. It was her something blue, so it counts both as my something old, borrowed, and blue!

My old were two pennies… they had the years my DH and I were born on them. I taped them to the inside of my shoes….and my shoes were blue. My borrowed was a ring.

Something new: my dress

Something blue: a little temp tattoo i’ll put on my leg (a blue butterfly- it’s my spirit animal!!) =)

Something old and borrowed will most likely be from my grandmother but she’s still looking for something =/

New: my dress, veil, etc…

Borrowed: A pin from a friend, pinned on the underside of my dress – she realized I didn’t have anything borrowed, and wanted me to have something borrowed! Very sweet girl.

Old: My late grandmother’s bracelet, gifted to me by my mother at my shower.

Blue: my shoes!

I have a blue crystal bracelet which was my first gift from Fiance when we started dating which I wear everday. 

I am wearing my grandmothers crystal necklace which is old and borrowed from my mum who now ownes it.

I have made new earrings to match the necklace – also dress etc are new.

My mum is probably the least sentimental person I’ve ever met. She surprised me by still having the garter and by offering it to me. 

Ask your mom. You never know!

My something old is my mothers veil that will be wrapped around the handle of my bouquet, something new is my dress, something borrowed is my aunts pearls and my something blue is either the ring my Fiance got me for our 2nd valentines day OR the ring my mom got me for my sweet 16 (My birthstone is aquamarine)

Old – No clue!! The old item is supposed to symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past, and my family has really bad continuity. So still working on that!

New – my dress!!

Borrowed – my younger (non-married) sister told me I would be wearing her Claddagh belly button ring lol. But since the borrowed item is typically “supposed” to come from a married friend/family member, I think I’ll have two borrowed items 😀

Blue – NO idea!! Blue doesn’t fit into either color scheme we’re thinking about, so maybe it’ll be my undergarments 😉

Also, this is my fave site for the old/new/borrowed/blue/sixpense in shoe info:

I have 2 chances to do this! I got legally married last month when my Marine was home on leave so we did a simple civil ceremony, just us.

New: Fun little lace dress from Kensie
Old: I was wearing pearls that have been passed down 4 generations to the oldest girl. 

Borrowed: The same clutch my mom carried on her wedding day. 

Blue: I sewed a little bit of blue ribbon onto my fascinator that I wore in place of a veil. I also wore my birthstone ring, it’s aquamarine and I’ve had it since I was 8. 

I don’t know what I’ll do for round 2 in the religious ceremony! I want to try to keep at least one item the same because it would be great to link the 2 ceremonies Laughing
