Yes, I'm familiar with something old, new, borrowed, blue but OMG! Is the bride supposed to ask to borrow something?!! I imagined it as someone offers me something to borrow, the day of. Which now that I am thinking about that... that doesn't make any sense.
I had an "all in one" item LOLOL It was a charm from way back when that had my mom & dad's picture in it. It was the "old", I borrowed it from my sister and we put a blue ribbon on it so it could go in my 'new' bouquet.
I love items that get passed `through multiple weddings! I'm wearing my mom's veil, which 3 of her sisters (my aunts) also wore! All of them are still married (some of them 40+ years), so hopefully some of that good luck gets passed down with the veil!
The seamstress that made my dress and is putting the veil on the comb for me suggested I do it myself because it's so easy! I just ordered the product she uses (Retro Clean), and it whitened in about an hour!
