Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue
We all know the saying, something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. For tradition's sake, brides have been following this rhyme for many years, and it can be almost anything you decide at your wedding. Below are some suggestions for you, so you don't have to stress!
Something Old: Your old item of choice can include things such as a family heirloom. Family heirlooms are a perfect way to honor your family as well as paying homage to the person in particular whose item it is. You can borrow some rings or other jewelry to honor your mother, or even a brooch to honor your grandmother. You could also borrow your mother's or sister's dress, or even the veil. This will save you a lot of money!
Something New: You can consider your dress being new, and leave it at that, or you could choose other items. Think outside the box, your something new could be your "new" husband. It could also be your shoes or veil, depending on if you buy them new!
Something Borrowed: Again, you can borrow your mother's jewelry or your grandmother's brooch; perfectly acceptable. You might consider borrowing your mom's veil, or maid of honor's stuff. You might even borrow a hair pin from your best friend.
Something Blue: This is where the fun comes in! Your shoes can be dyed blue, or even your garter can be blue! You might have a blue ring that you are dying to wear, or you might have a dyed crinoline. Have fun with this part of the tradition, and let your personality shine!
