    My dress and earrings are new, my necklace will be borrowed from my stepmom, and I ordered a blue garter. Not for tossing just for keeping. But I don’t know what to do yet about something old.

    My daughter’s:

    Old - handkerchief from grandmother gifted to her on her 1st communion as well as her heirloom wedding ring that belonged to FH’s grandmother

    New - dress

    Borrowed - one of my rosaries

    Blue - family ring with blue stone worn by many women on her FH’s side for their weddings

    Sixpence in her shoe - purchased a 1964 sixpence from eBay

    Ok so I was thinking about this, and can someone explain what it all means? I see it done at weddings but I have no idea what none of the traditions mean...

    Something Old: my pearls. They're not THAT old but my mom has been getting me a single pearl for every birthday/Christmas/life event since I was 7, so some of the pearls were given to me 17 years ago. They were strung as a necklace for my wedding.

    Something New: my wedding dress.

    Something Borrowed: a flattened penny from Paris Island. I borrowed it from my cousin, her brother couldn't join us because he is currently stationed at Paris Island! It was a nice way to include him in the day.

    Something Blue: my panties. Lol.

    Per Google:
    “something old” stands for continuity; “something new” shows optimism for the future; “something borrowed” symbolizes borrowed happiness; and “something blue” represents purity, love, and fidelity.

    My old: im incorportaing my grans pearls (she passed in 2006, they were my wedding gift from the first time around, so idk if ill use those pearls, or her christmas ones i got when she passed.
    New: not sure yet, maybe shoes?
    Borrowed: i dunno
    Blue: i plan on wearing a single blue pearl in my hair, one in my bouquet, and using blue thread in my petticoat.
    Lets not forget the lucky sixpence in my shoe- im planning on finding a sixpence from the year my gran was born to honor her, and if my dad doesnt make it that long, im going to get a second sixpence from the year he was born for the other shoe.

    I am struggling with the “something borrowed”. I just don’t know about that one yet.

    Something new- My parents said they’ve got it covered and won’t tell me 😂
    Something old- My dad’s grandmother painted a bracelet for my grandmother. (Porcelain pieces with floral paintings.) It has been passed down to me, and I love it!
    Something blue- I’m sewing a piece of one of my dad’s old blue shirts into my dress.
    something borrowed- My grandma collects brooches and she is letting me borrow one of her favorites to pin to my bouquet

    Old: - My dress which was originally my Grandma's (dad's mom) that was handmade for her by her MIL.

    New - veil and shoes - but I have neither yet...

    Borrowed - something from my mom's jewelry collection. She has it picked out and I will get it that morning as a surprise. I just know not to buy a necklace... (I will be returning it after the reception to make it completely borrowed).

    Blue - a brooch with an aquamarine at the center that has been passed down through my mom's mom's family since the mid 1800s and is now mine.

    I like this! I have been told that the borrowed should always come from a happily married woman (at least one that had a happy marriage for most of her adult life if you are closest to a widow - but the husband's death should not have been tragic or unusually young in that case).
