    Your something old doesn't have to be from your parents wedding.  My MIL gave em a vintage hanky with my new last name initial on it for my something old.

    I think I'm gonna wear my mother-in-law's veil... but if I don't like it, I'm gonna wear her sapphire ring either way.  It's perfect, cause it's 28 years old, my FI's age, because his father gave it to his mother as a present when he was born.  So, it's old, blue, and has sentimental value!  My parents don't have anything since they had a super casual wedding and my mom barely got dressed up.

    Ask around in your family. Perhaps an aunt or grandmother, or someone in your fiance's family has something you can borrow that's old.

    My something old is the little plastic doves my parents used on their wedding cake. They got married 35 years ago, so it means a lot to me. I was having a hard time trying to figure out how i could incorporate them into the wedding, and then I realized how to. I will put all but one dove on my bird cage(for cards which i made myself) and then have one on my bouquet so it will actually be around for the ceremony.

    Something borrowed- My best friends ring bearer pillow and flower girl basket.

    OK - this may sound dumb but I'm using my 'sixpence in my shoe" as my old, too.

    Something....
    Old - a real Sixpence
    New - dress!
    Borrowed - nothing yet
    Blue - Garter or perhaps a ribbon around the sixpence
    Sixpence in my shoe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's a website where vendors sell what I consider homemade unique items. Ive been able to find a lot of stuff for the wedding on there as well as gifts in general.

    This is a link to the lady I bought my earrings from. She was fabulous to work with!

    my something old is a rosary that is my birthstone that I am tying around my bouquet.  My borrowed is jewelry from my grandmother and great grandmother.  You could borrow something from a close friend or if your FI has a sibiling, borrow something from them.  You can always tie something underneath your dress if its like a ribbon or something.  My SIL "borrowed" some perfume from her aunt.   She didn't have anything either but found something day of!
