Something blue /something borrowed

So I am doing something new (my dress), something old (a bracelet), something borrowed (i need an idea), and something blue (a friend in a blue).

My question is how do I incorporate my friend in the wedding with her being my something blue? She isn't a bridesmaid but a friend since middle school after thinking long and hard I want her incorporated. She agreed to be my something blue should I have her as my hostess?

My 2nd question is do I ask someone to give me something as my something borrowed or are they supposed to give it to me on their own?

    Technically, if you want to follow the tradition of old new borrowed and blue, then you need to have all of these items on you at the time of your ceremony- so having a friend attend your wedding wearing blue would not count as your “something blue”. I would suggest doing something a lot less complicated anyway. Maybe paint your toenails a light blue or have a blue ribbon around the stem of your bouquet, or you could even wear blue shoe inserts! As far as your “something borrowed”, it is definitely OK to ask someone if you can borrow an item for the ceremony Smiley smile

    I don’t like the color blue it’s actually not allowed in any of my decor since myself and FH don’t like it … I’m not a traditional bride so this is my spin on it

    Totally understand. I’m not the hugest fan of blue either lol Since you’re not traditional, you could just skip the something old, new, borrowed and blue entirely, since it is a super old fashioned and traditional.

    You could have your friend do a reading during the ceremony, like from a book that influences you and your FH. Personally I have a guy friend who I'm having do a scripture reading bc he's my MOH's ex so I couldn't have him in the wedding party. So that's how I'm honoring our friendship. Your something blue friend could do something similar! ^-^

    R C that's such an amazing idea. I've been wanting a poetry reading but I didn't know how to incorporate it and that's perfect !!! if I could hug you I would.
