Re: What's your something old, new, borrowed and blue?

  • I am planning to do this.  So far, the dress is new, and I plan to have blue on my underwear.  For old and borrowed, I am hoping to borrow my grandma's ring from my mom, so I have both those covered.  What are you planning?
    Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.
  • Old: My e-ring (my mom-mom gave it to me before she died), my necklace (it's a simple diamond setting from a ring my other grandma gave to my mom and then by default is now mine), and my earrings (diamond studs that my mom gave them to me years ago)

    New: dress! (also maybe a bracelet and the other set of earrings)

    Borrowed: Not sure yet

    Blue: I'll be rocking some blue skivvies along with my awesome blue heels.

  • Not intentionally, but I do have all those things!

    Old:  my handkerchief, which my Mom embroidered for her best friend (who is my godmother), who then had it embroidered for me in the other corner.  It's a wonderful keepsake.  Also, my brooch on my sash is from my grandmother, who got it as a gift from my late grandfather.

    New:  my dress, my necklace, my earrings, my shoes, my veil - just about everything!

    Borrowed: the brooch - I will give it back to my grandmother after the wedding.

    Blue:  the handkerchief is embroidered in blue - also, my underwear has the word "bride" embroidered in blue as well.



  • New: Dress
    Old: Grandmother's Cocktail Diamond Ring
    Borrowed: I'm stumped!
    Blue: Possibly my undies or my garter.
  • New: Dress and earings (I have yet to find)

    Old: Necklace my father gave me years ago (might get something older of his to carry as well as he passed away two years ago so it's a way for him to be 'with' me that day)

    Borrowed: My Veil, turns out I was planning on buying the same one my cousin (who is my MOH) wore at her wedding two years ago, so instead of buying it I am just borrowng hers!

    Blue: My Navy heels that match the girls Navy BM dresses as well as my sapphire ring I always wear
  • I have no idea and I need to start thinking about it!

    New:  Dress/earrings
    Old:  No idea
    Borrowed:  Yikes, no clue.  Maybe someone has a bracelet I can wear...
    Blue:  Garter
