A few years ago, one of my sorority sisters got married and accidently started a beautiful tradition. When another one of my sorority susters got engaged, the first one passed down her beautiful cathedral length veil to her. Since then, each time another sister gets engaged, the veil is passed to her. I am the 4th bride to wear it and I am soooooooo excited to continue this tradition. I plan to put together a scap book with portraits of each of us wearing the veil and a letter to the next bride.
That got me thinking, what other “something borrowed” stories do you Bees have?

That is so beautiful! I love your idea of putting together a scrapbook to pass down as well (:
I still have to figure out what my something borrowed will be. I think my sister/MOH already has something planned though

When my parents got married my cousin caught the garter. When he got married he gave a speach saying how he had caught it at my parents wedding and held onto it until he got married and was giving it back to my mom since he didn’t need it anymore. He gave the stipulation that me and my sisters had to wear it when we got married then give it back to my mom so that was my something borrowed (which was also blue and old)

I love the story of your veil ♡♡♡
Mine is my great grandmother’s 50th wedding anniversary ring. My mother passed it down to me for my wedding as it was passed to her, and I will pass it on to my children. It is technically mine now but I’m considering it something borrowed since I will not be keeping it forever.

My SIL used my veil for her wedding, and it’s a tradition we hope to keep up.

I’m not sure yet but I will probaby ask to borrow diamond earrings from a family member if any of my aunts have anything in white gold. All my mom’s and grandmother’s are yellow. Otherwise I’m not sure.

nyebridemd : that’s a beautiful tradition! Mine were my grandmother’s earrings borrowed from my mom. My grandmother passed away 3 months before our wedding, so it meant a lot to be able to borrow them. (Photo courtesy of Quicksilver Photography from Madison, WI)

Fi’s family crown. Our families have known each other for ages, so my mom and grandma both wore the same white pearly art deco tiara my Fi’s grandma wore on her wedding day. Fi’s mom has offered to let me wear it too, and I’m really excited about it. My dress is blush, so I plan to pair it with a white to blush dip dyed elbow length veil and stick a few wildflowers in with it.
