something old- i don’t know yet! How old does something old have to be? A year? 5? 10?

something new- dress, veil, shoes, etc

something borrowed and blue- my grandmothers sapphire and diamond ring she just got (similar to Kate’s but smaller, obviously) she wants all her granddaughters to wear it on their wedding day and my sister, cousin and I are all getting married in the next year.

@ladyamalthea:  I’m not 100% on some of these but here are my thoughts for now.

Something Old: Handkerchief? Or could be mypearl necklace FI got me for our anniversary last year.

Something New: My dress, shoes, undergarments.

Something Borrowed: My grandpa’s handkerchief….could be the “old” item too. Not 100% for sure on this but I know I will tear up a lot this day and I’ll want something other than kleenex to wipe the tears away.

Something Blue: Maybe my garter? Or shoes? Brooch? Piece in my bouquet since I’m using silk flowers and making my own? Not sure yet.

Something old: antique ring on my right hand

Something new: my slip

Something borrowed: the antique ring lol… 2 birds with one stone

Something blue: my toenail polish

And everyone seems to forget the rest of the rhyme… a sixpence in her shoe. I had my MIL send me a real sixpence (she lives in the UK). I put it in my shoe during the ceremony for good luck.
