African American Weddings

Something old, new, borrowed, and blue

I admit that I stole this topic from my local board, but I'm not that active on there.  I thought I'd bring it over here to the best board ever.  Hopefully this stirs up some ideas for people (including myself) who still isn't completely sure as to what they want to do.  Here's mine:

Old - my grandmother passed away this past June and I have her wedding ring.  I think I might attach it to my bouquet, but not sure yet, but I do know that I want to carry it somehow.

New - Dress, shoes, and jewelry.

Borrowed - Still not sure on this.  I'd like to borrow something of my mom's but I have no idea what.  I can't wear anything from her wedding because my parents got married in the 70s and they wanted to get in touch with their African roots and wore long dashikis!  So needless to say there aren't any "classic" elements from their wedding that I could borrow.

Blue - Maybe my shoes will be blue, but I haven't decided for sure if I want to wear blue or pink.  If not the shoes then my undies will have blue in them and maybe a blue garter.  I know for sure that I want our names and date sewn inside the dress in blue stitching.


What are you girls doing?
