Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue... trust me - you'll be asked more than once if you're doing this tradition!! Smiley laugh Are you honoring this tradition and rounding up your four good luck charms?


Are you doing or ditching this tradition?

    I did for tradition, not for luck.

    I didn’t purposely do it, but I’ve got everything but something blue at this point, so I might as well.

    I have lots of new stuff and am borrowing a few items. Nothing blue though, which I'm fine with. I'm rather ambivalent towards all that.

    Old: earrings
    New: almost everything
    Borrowed/blue: a blue dinosaur borrowed from SIL that I sewed into her dress 5 years ago for her wedding to my brother. It's a new traditionSilver sixpence in my shoe: stepdad is bringing it. He collects coins.

    I did this. Old = vintage handkerchief tied around my bouquet stock. New = dress. Borrowed = hair broach and jewelry. Blue = the stitching in the handkerchief.

    Looking back, I think I had everything but the borrowed. All completely unintentional though.

    I wasn't planning on doing it but it seems to have happened.

    Old: the pearls that my grandma's father gave to her that she wore on her wedding day

    New: my earrings and my shoes will both be new

    Borrowed: our friends got married in a similar setting back in May so we're using some of their decor items

    Blue: blue hydrangeas

    Old: handkerchief that's been passed down through generations in my family. I'm wrapping it around the bouquet.

    New: Dress, shoes, hair piece

    Borrowed: Earrings from my mom

    Blue: My sapphire engagement ring :-)

    Ditching. I never saw the point, plus it's extra expense.
