    Blue underwear, but just make sure it doesn't show through your gown, LOL!  Or blue jewelry, blue nail polish.

    My blue was a patch sewn into the underneath of my dress that had my new monogram and wedding date. I also wore blue and white polka dot underwear. My mother was appalled that I wouldn't wear something more 'sexy' but I was going for comfort!

    Old - My father's pin from college.  He "pinned" my mom with it way back in the day when kids still did that.  It meant they were "going steady".  My dad passed away when I was little so it is really special to me to be able to walk down the aisle with his pin.  I am planning to pin it to the satin on my bouquet. New- my dress borrowed - a life long friend's headpiece Blue - my father's pin has a blue stone in it so it could also be my something blue.  But, I couldn't resist buying blue panties that are alllll ruffles, they look like bloomers that little girls wear!  I love them!!

    Old: planning on sewing a ring that FI gave me when we started dating to my crinoline (It doesn't really go w/anything else I'll be wearing that day)New: dress, shoes, etcBorrowed: still working on that, but the current plan is to ask around the family for a pair of tiny pearl studs to wear in my second earring holesBlue: at the moment, if I'm in closed-toed shoes, I'm doing blue toenails. Otherwise, the ring FI gave me (My "old") has a sapphire in it, so I might cheat and make it count twice.
