Something old, something new, something borrowed...
Posted: Aug 20, 2009 5:45 PM

Hello all,

My Mom asked me this morning what I was planning to use for my something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. I had no idea. :)

So I started thinking about it...
Old: I'm thinking to wear the circlet that my prince made for my birthday last year, and just add some flowers to it. It's not all that old though. The other option would be seeing if either of my grandmothers have any brooches I can pin to my bouquet, or a necklace I can weave into my circlet. I'm not sure.
New: I'm calling my veil new, cause by the time my wedding rolls around, the dress won't be new! :)
Borrowed: I really have no idea here, except if I use the jewelry idea. But I don't want to use one item for both, so I'm not sure...
Blue: I hate blue. With a passion. Despise it. So... I'm stuck. I hate it so much I don't even want my garter to be blue. I don't care if no one will see it, :P. So, maybe I'll have to think on that one. A tiny blue gemstone on the garter might do. Ick.

:D So ladies, do you have any better ideas for any of those, especially something blue?
Note: I don't wear jewelry aside from my engagment ring (which I don't have yet... hehe), so jewelry isn't really an option, unless incorperated into the flowers or headpiece.
I'm here for friends, ideas, and supportive encouragement. Please don't say anything if you are just going to be critical. Thank you.

For your something blue, here's a couple things I thought of that you could use, even if you hate blue, and the color shouldn't bother you. Do you plan on having any sort of cushions or insoles in your shoes? Those could be blue. Or maybe just stick a blue band-aid on you, obviously where it won't be seen, LOL.. Also, if you totally despise the color blue and aren't superstitious, you can totally skip the something blue.

Hi,

How about using blue rhinestones underneath your shoes with both you and FH's initials on? I so did not want to go for the normal blue underwear / garter etc. so thought of doing this, there's directions on:

www.projectwedding.com

That's really the only think you could do, apart from perhaps wearing a hankie that's either blue or with something embroided on in the colour blue?!

Good luck!

For my something old I am taking a piece of my baby blanket that my grandmother made for me before I was born and placing it in my bouquet. She passed away and I miss her soo bad. I have had this blanket since the day I was born. I still have it on my bed. It means so much to me so I am taking a piece of it with me down the aisle.

My something blue I bought little blue rhinestones that say I Do and put them on the bottom of my shoes. I bought them at gracious bridal.com and I love them. They were like $4 I think.

Borrowed will be my earrings.

New is my dress and my veil. Oh! and my garter

As we grow older, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change about me, I will keep falling in love with you all over again every single day

Well you can do so many things. You can have a handkerchief with something blue, or even place a blue heart sticker under your dress. You can also look at somethings that are off-blue, like turqoise, black-blue, midnight, there is a range of things. Maybe have an anklet that have crstals w/ a hint of blue or get like a blue shimmer or your pinky toe, something fun. The sky is the limit. It might be fun to hide it in the hem of your dress or on your sleeve.

Hope that gave you some ideas.


After the wedding comes the real funSmile

Thank you so much ladies! I really like the idea of the gemstones on the bottom of my shoe idea, but all of them are great. Thanks so much!

i saw a really cute idea, i believe at the wedding library in NYC. they make a small white label to sew inside your dress and it has "something blue" stitched on it in blue thread. i like that it's different and very tongue-in-cheek.
