Show me pics or inspiration on what you're using/used for your something old, new, borrowed and blue!

Your mothers pearls? A six-pence? The ring your grandpa gave your grandma? Blue shoes? New earrings? (I consider my dress my something new lol)

    I don't have any pictures, but plan to borrow my mom's locket and put pictures of my deceased grandparents in it and wrap it around my bouquet as my something old and borrowed. My dress, veil, and jewelry will be my something new. Still trying to figure out my something blue though. I know it won't be my shoes, and more than likely won't be my garter...so I am stuck on that one.

    I don’t have pictures but we discovered a little blue bow sewn on the insider of my grandmother dress I’m taking it and having it sewn into by dress to be my something blue. For old and borrowed I’ll probably raid my mom’s jewelry. There is so much between her and my grandmother’s collection!

    I decided to center the whole tradition around my shoes. My shoes will be my something new. I haven't decided which ones I will wear, but if it's the boots I plan to replace the laces with blue ribbon for my something blue, if its the other pair, I will wear the ribbon around my ankle. The sixpense I ordered is from 1949 (which is the year my grandparents got married) so it will be my something old too. I'm just missing something borrowed, which I'm still not sure about.

    Good idea with the locket and a wonderful way to honor your loved ones! I think blue shoes are cute but not for my wedding day lol. I have blue flowers in my bouquet and the guys are wearing midnight blue tuxes

    Old is my FH's great grandmother's engagement ring. Its the ring he proposed to me with, so we are going to incorporate it into the wedding day.

    New is my dress and accessories.

    Borrowed is my mom's pearls from her wedding.

    Blue will be my garter which has a little blue bow and a charm that will hang from it.

    Nice!! I bet it's a beautiful ring! My grandmother gave each of her granddaughters one of her rings (there's only 4 of us), I got her opal birthstone ring and my oldest cousin got her wedding ring!

    Beautiful dress! That neckline is the perfect amount of sexy!

    I have my moms pearls too! The first set of pearls my dad bought her and I'm considering wearing those.

    That bow is the perfect hint of blue Smiley smile

    Yaaas! I think the strappy heels would be cute but the boots seem like they would go with your personality and be very unique, especially with the black beading!!
