@MexiPino:  Totally just inspired me to order a sixpence with a year of a special meaning! I went with 1958 because my Fiance grandparents were married that year and they have been married 55 years now πŸ™‚

This is a fun one!

Something old – my mom’s hankerchief that she got from her grandmother when my mom got married to my dad (it has been washed and pressed lol)

Something new – my dress and my necklace & earrings

Something borrowed – I totally forgot about this until the morning we were getting ready and my bridemaid came to the rescue and let me borrow her Tiffany bracelet. I love her so much for saving me!

Something blue – My undies that said “bride” and my perfume was “something blue” by Oscar De La Renta πŸ™‚

I still have a while to change my mind, but here is what I’m planning on so far!

Something old: The garter my mom made for her wedding 25 years ago; my aunt ended up with it and gave it to me shortly before I got engaged.

Something new: For sure my dress, but possibly shoes and necklace also.

Something borrowed: Not sure if it counts, but our wedding date is the same date as my FI’s grandparents, but his grandpa died many years ago so we are “borrowing” the date to honor their marriage.  My other option is my MOH’s lace veil from her wedding.

Something blue: My rosary from my 1st communion that I will wrap around my bouquet, and my earrings from my parents that are my birthstone, aquamarine.

@Cyri: That’s one way to look upon it, and I like it! My husbands godmother gifted the six pence to me though, so I can’t take credit for tracking that one down. πŸ™‚

I had my geat grandmother’s pearls that my mother lent me, and my mother’s veil which she gave to me to use, so both are old and borrowed, although I don’t think my mother will get the veil back, haha.

My dress, ring, shoes, and garter, you name it, all new

My underpants were blue  πŸ™‚

My Blue will be my engagement ring and underwear, my old will be my wedding dress (1987, the year I was born, my mom’s!), (my new will be maybe my veil and/or shoes)…actually my new will be a garter set my grandma made, my borrowed might be some of my sister’s jewelry.

Hmm this is something I need to figure out. Only one I know is

Something New- Which will be an orgamini locket that I will be attaching to my bouquet. It has charms representing my Great Grandmother who past away two years ago.  It has a in loving memory of…on a small heart, and a plate that says “Faith” which was her name, Along with an angel wing, and cross. 

Something Blue- maybe my garter or earrings or something not sure.

Something Old- Would love to include something meaningful here just not sure what.

Something borrowed- Again would like to borrow something meaningful here too. Just have no clue.

Maybe I could borrow something from my mom, and something old so that each generation in the family is represented??
