so far all I have is my something old… which is a charm bracelet that Fiance gave me for our first Christmas… its sterling silver and each charm represents something about me… it was the sweetest gift anyone has ever given me

How old is old?

 

Old-   ??

New- wedding dress!  earrings

Borrowed: necklace (mom), probably also bracelet (grandma)

Blue- shoes, garter

 

How old does my something old need to be? Can it be old *AND* borrowed?

Old: not one but two silver sixpences for my shoes (they are the years of my parents’ births)

New: attire!

Borrowed: a blue guitar pick from my Fiance, slipped into a secure place with the “girls”

Blue: besides the pick, I have a blue hanky that belonged to my dear great grandmother (which is also old, obviously)

Lots of overlap with my list I guess!

Old:  My mom’s veil
New:  My bridal jewelry
Borrowed:  ??? (haven’t decided yet!)
Blue:  One of the brooches in my brooch bouquet (it’s beautiful and so dark that the blue actually looks black!)

I’m also going to have a silver sixpence in my shoe (which will be both old and borrowed as well).  It’s the same one that my Future Mother-In-Law, her mother, and her grandmother all used!
