My something old is my engagement ring

My something new will be my dress, shoes, headband, etc.

My something blue will be my jewelry – I want to wear either a blue topaz or sapphire cocktail ring and earrings

I have no clue what my borrowed will be!  I am hoping that someone will be able to offer me up something to wear!

My old was my mom’s wedding band tied to my bouquet.

My new was my dress.

My borrowed was my dad’s wedding, tied with my mom’s ring to my bouquet.

My blue was my amazing teal heels!

No sixpence for me…walking on a coin in 3 1/2 inch heels…not my idea of fun.   (lol, I know it didn’t have to be in my shoe).

The rings were important because my dad passed away 3 years before I got married. It meant a lot to have a symbol of my parents’ marriage since they were happily married for so long.
