Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

Anyone did/ doing this tradition? If so - what are you doing? :)

Re: Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

  • I am doing this:
    Old- I am taking a piece of my moms wedding dress, cutting it into a 3" heart shape and having it embroided with her wedding date and mine, and sewn into the inside lining og my dress at the top.
    New- Just about everything from me veil to my dress to my shoes
    Blue- I am wearing a sapphhire pendant earrings I believe andi thought about getting a pair of blue hanky pankies to wear.
    Borrowed- I haven't thought of this yet. But I am probably going to borrow a piece of jewelry from my grandmothers collection

  • Old:  I was married at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet.  My "old" was Mom's purse.  Her grandmother had given it to her for her first dance - at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet

    New:  Dress

    Borrowed:  Grandma's topaz ring borrowed from Mom.  Grandma has passed on and it was a way of having her there with me. 

    Blue:  Besides the topaz jewelry, I also wore blue shoes.  Blue was one of our wedding colors. 
  • Old: My Grandmother's Wedding ring. She passed away that is my way of knowing she is there with me.

    New: My Dress and my Veil and Shoes.

    Borrowed: One of my BM's petticoat and my mom's Tanzanite and diamond necklace and earings.

    Blue: Haven't figured this out yet, maybe my garter, or undies. Or I was thinking about my girls writing something on the bottom of my shoe in Blue Sharpie I seen this on pinterest.
