Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

June 3rd, 2013 by     


The age old tradition that still lives!  Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue!

Nowadays, there are so many ways to incorporate these things into your wedding.  From nail polish to sewing a blue patch into your dress, to blue “I do” sequins on your shoes.  All of these are supposed to be just a good luck charm, but there needs to be some significance to decide what you’re going to carry with you (or wear) on your wedding day.

I’ll tell you my items, if you tell me yours.

My old and borrowed were actually the same item, a pearl necklace that my husband’s grandmother gave to me. I matched all of my jewelry to go along with it, and even my veil had some pearls sewn in.

My new, this one seems the easiest to me, was literally my veil down to my shoes!  I couldn’t even list you ladies all of the things!

And last, my something blue. I thought this idea was super unique and really fun, it was my pedicure (which even lasted through the honeymoon).

How did you ladies decide what to use?  Was it the significance behind the item or was it just a quick decision to fill this tradition?
