Something Blue?

Are any of you ladies doing the "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"? If so, what items are you using?

    I've yet to figure this out too - seems like its all in the details at this point.

    Old - no idea
    New - dress/jewelry/shoes
    Borrowed - no idea
    Blue - maybe I'll put this into the garter somehow

    I was going to use my mother's wedding band as my something old but my dad and her are divorced so I didn't want to jinx it lol. My dress/shoes/jewelery are also new. My garter is blue. Still looking for something borrowed and old. Oh wait, I'm borrowing my daughter's purse as a clutch, does that count?!

    My new is going to be my dress and I borrowed earrings from my FI's BM's wife.  I was going to wear  the first piece of jewelry my FI gave me (a bracelet) as my something old but I might change my mind if my mom finds my Lela's jewelry. 
    I'm having trouble with my something blue :(  My FI told me I should just purchase a blue garter but I'm IN LOVE with a hot pink/zebra print one I saw online.  I tried to find demur blue bridal panties and have only come across sexy thongs.  So, if anyone knows of a website that sells moderate bridal lingerie, please send it my way Smile

    Well I'm kinda lame and I looked up the roots/ meanings of this tradition and found that I really wanted to do it right lol. I'm not superstitous by any means, but I do like to do certain things every now and then "just in case" haha

    Old- pair of undies I already own that also happen to be blue..!
    New- dress
    Borrowed- crinoline from my cousin (which btw I learned is something borrowed from a woman in a successful marriage.. so I really wanted to get that one right haha.. considering the history of divorces and unhappy marriages in my family!! Lol don't want to screw that up!)
    Blue- either my undies or the garter I recieved with my dress. I don't really like it, but it just might do


    garzal- I have seen decent blue bridal undies!! I just don't remember where! Lemme look through my bookmarks and such and see if I can find them again. I'll let you know!

    Hahaha! I know it always sounds funny pairing "old" and "panties" together. It makes ppl think old as in raggedy lol. But really.. what's more comfortable than a pair you already have and love?? Hahaha! Think about it ;-) Cuz I think the worst case senario would be to be wearing something that ends up bugging you allll day looong. Could you imagine?? Lol

    My grandparents pretty much helped raise me so I wanted to do something special to honor them.  We're getting married on my grandfather's birthday so it really means so much more than just the wedding.
