My something old, something new, and something blue are going to be the right hand ring I am having made right now. I am having my late grandmother’s aquamarine recut and reset into an assher. The something new is the setting and cut. 

I am borrowing my family heirloom pearl necklace, too.

My something old and borrowed is one of my grandmas favourite embroidered handkerchiefs. It’s a tradition in my family that it’s your something old from one of the older women in your family. That women will also gift you one that you carry with you into your married life. I’m not big on tradition but I love that one. 

My something blue will be a navy blue ribbon on my bouquet.

My something old will be an heirloom ring that was given to me, it was my great, great, great grandmothers! 

Something new is my wedding dress, something borrowed will be a compact mirror that will be in my clutch which was given to my mum’s mother on her 21st birthday from her parents.

And something blue is TBD, My great aunt has a tradition that the bride should have some form of money in her shoe, so I’m thinking I’ll use a $10 note because they are blue here in Australia!

FI’s mom collects Delft Blue pottery and happens to have some accessory pieces painted the same way. I am borrowing a bracelet from her.

My something old was a pair of Swarovski earrings DH had gifted me early on in our relationship (we’d been together 9.5 years when we got married) and a diamond RHR he had gifted me for my 21st birthday.

My something new was my dress and my shoes.

My something borrowed wasmy step mother’s veil (I had wanted to wear my grandmother’s but it wasn’t well preserved – which no one realised until we pulled it out – so my step mother stepped in and offered hers once she found out).

My something blue was a pink/blue/white handkerchief that belonged to my great great grandmother. My great grandmother carried it with her on her wedding day, as did my grandmother and my aunt, so then it was my turn.

Oh boy, this is actually one of the things I look forward to a lot for my wedding!

For a few years now, Fiance and his dad have been restoring a ’67 Mustang. His dad, who owns the car, picked out the color – blue. So it fits ALL of the criteria of being old, new, borrowed, and blue! XD
