Oh boy! I didn’t know it had to be from someone with a lucky marriage. My father left my mother, remarried, had more kids, left them and had a sex change. I don’t think I want that to rub off onto me!

I am borrowing her Michael C. Fina pearls she got YEARS after they spilt so they aren’t tainted right????????

I borrowed my crinoline from my BFF. 

 

Practicality over sentimentality apparently!

My sister in law. The necklace was one she wore for her sisters and my now other SILs wedding.

And I also borrowed a crinoline from a very good friend.

I borrowed my grandmother’s diamond tennis bracelet.  She’s been divorced twice, but Darling Husband and I are still going strong after a year lol.

I asked my godmother to lend me a brooch to pin on the wrap of my bouquet.

I’ve heard a different explanation for why people do the “something borrowed”: it’s meant as a reminder that you still can – and need to – rely on help from your family and friends in your marriage.

I was thinking of borrowing one of my bridesmaids short wedding dress to wear for part of the reception. Her marriage has been so so far at least. 🙂
