Everything Wedding

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue March 23, 2010

Of course, it’s not mandatory that you include these four superstitious items in your wedding, but it’s a fun tradition. But, how do you find them?

Your something old doesn’t have to be falling apart or ugly. It could be an antique lace stem wrap on your bouquet or your mother’s wedding dress. It could be your grandmother’s wedding ring. Really, you can be as creative or traditional as you like. You could even have the wedding at a mansion that was built a century ago and call that your something old.

Your something new is generally the wedding dress, but it doesn’t have to be. It could be a fabulous headpiece you found on etsy or the new centerpiece vases that you will be taking home.

Something borrowed could be your best friend’s veil or a relative’s jewelry. Again, be creative and use this item as a way to honor a special person.

Something blue tends to be found on the garter. You can also put blue accents of flowers, jewels or ribbon in your bouquet. However, my personal favorite something blue is the bride’s shoes. This is a great color that pops when your toes peek from under the white dress and your photographer can get some amazing pictures with blue wedding shoes.

Have fun with this tradition. There are no limits to what you can count as your something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue!
