Old, new, borrowed, blue?

Did you follow this on your wedding day?

I have a blue necklace that I will wear, a new corset but no clue on the rest. Don't know that it really matters anyway.

  • if you want a tradition wedding then i would get the old new borrow but if your just wanting something simple then i wouldnt worry about it..i mean that would be something you should decide and go with it

  • I actually had something that covered old, borrowed and blue, but then became new for me.

    it was my great grandmother's cross that came over from England with her. She passed it to my grandmother, who gave it to my mother and I got to wear it on my wedding day. It has a 2 ct Topaz in the middle of it and and opal on each point.

    When I went to give it back to my mother after my wedding, she gave it to me as my gift.

  • It makes it mean more. Something blue is a necklace ,new is the corset, Something old is maybe a pair of ear rings. Something borrowed could be a bracelet. I believe it does matter. the first year of marriage is fragile to begin with,why chance it by leaving out the traditional things?

  • Something old, something new
    Something borrowed, something blue
    And a silver sixpence in her shoe!

    I did have all five, but not as five separate items. My mom gave me her old pink garter. My veil was new (as were many parts of my outfit, but that is a part that I then loaned out to others). My best friend loaned me her blue garter. And one of my mom's best friends got silver sixpences for all of the daughters of their circle. I thought it was nice.
