I have the best something old/blue. My future Mother-In-Law gave me the penny she wore in her shoe when she got married! And it is in a little blue pouch.

Old:  My earrings.

New:  Dress, shoes, hair flower.

Borrowed:  I carried the bible that my mom carried when she and my dad got married. 

Blue:  I had a blue garter.  I was going to wear blue Chuck Taylors but found a pair of shimmering white ones that were way better than the blue they had, so I had to go to a boring plan B.

The only thing I don’t have covered is something Blue or the sixpence (I don’t think I’m doing that).

Something Old: I am wearing both pearl necklace and earings that use to be my grandma’s.  I also have an old vintage veil

Something New:  My dress and shoes

Something borrowed: Brooch from Aunt to go on my flowers

Something blue:  Still stuck on this.  My future aunt has a brooch with a blue stone that she offeredd to let me use.

Old – we sewed a button from my grandmother’s wedding dress on the inside of my dress next to my heart.

Blue – we sewed blue ribbon inside the back of my dress to act as a belt loop in case my bra decided to get antsy and try and poke out of my dress.  We put my bra through that loop and there were no bra peekaboos the whole day. 

Borrowed – a ring my mom wears that my grandpa found in Africa when he was in WWII. 

New – Everything else, dress, jewelry, hair twist ins, garters

I didn’t do the sixpence.  I didn’t wear shoes during the ceremony, we were on the beach and all the girls went barefoot, but we made foot jewelry that we all wore.  They were super cute.
