Ugh..i’m in this situation too! 

do you have a garter yet? I was thinking I could re-wear my mom’s, since I don’t have one yet. if not that, I think it’s normal for someone close to you to offer something small to put on. For example, a friend of mine got married and her great grandmother had a tiny butterfly pin that she borrowed. She put it on the back of her dress, just outside of the keyhole. It was precious!

How about another piece of jewelry of your grandmothers? that’s what I did.

Hmm, I don’t know. 🙁

I’m hoping it still counts if my something old and something borrowed are the same thing! I plan on somehow incorporating my great-grandmother’s gorgeous platinum ring (it’s way too big for me to wear unless my mom has it resized) into my wedding day attire, so hoping it can act as both since I don’t really have anything else that’s old.

I borrowed my best friend’s veil – she got married a few months before me and had a really pretty, simple veil that looked perfect with both our dresses. 

This same friend’s ‘something borrowed’ was jewelry from someone in her family.

What about a hanky? Even if it’s just plain white (my dad used to carry them) generic one. Or borrow a penny from someone and that can be the penny in your shoe for good luck or whatever. I am borrowing some hand painted floral hair pins that my friend wore for her wedding. Really you could even just borrow a safety pin and pin it to your bra or panties or something.

My something borrowed will be my FI’s grandmother’s pearl necklace – she’s been in the hospital for about 4 months now, and doesn’t think she’ll be able to come to our wedding, so hopefully this will be really special.  I haven’t tried it on with my dress yet, but hopefully it will work out nicely.

My sister gave me a hair pin that she wore in her hair when she got married. My daughter put it on my bouquet for me.

I borrowed my mom’s Tiffany jewelry.

I like the idea of a brooch or pin, you could put it somewhere on your dress or attatch it to your bouquet.

I am in the exact same situation….I don’t have anything to “borrow” either. I could perhaps wear my friend’s garter, but since my fiancé caught it in her garter toss 5 years ago, it’s been at my house….so it’s not really “borrowed” if I just go get it out of my dresser drawer, lol. The brooch or pin idea could be good, but I am not sure if anyone I know has a good one. Hmm, keep the posts coming because I need ideas too!

I figure…worst case scenario, I will borrow a penny from a Bridesmaid or Best Man and put it in my shoe.

When I first got engaged, my mother told me to borrow her pearl-beaded clutch.  My grandmother had given it to her and it still had a little note from my grandmother in it.

The week before the wedding, she brought out a crocheted wrap.  Apparently my father’s mother had given it to her on their wedding day.

I’m hoping to borrow earings from my grandmother.
