Idea's for incorporating the tradition of Something Borrowed, Something Blue , Something Old and Something New !
Something Borrowed........... a bracelet from your best friend, your dad's handkerchief , a necklace from your mom , or earrings, or jewelry from a great grand parent. Did your groom’s family or sibling use a cake topper on their wedding day? Why not borrow that for your big day as well! Don’t stop at the cake topper, borrow that cake knife too!
Something Old............... . A family heirloom, such as broach, handkerchief, or a locket you can tie into your bouquet is a very sweet gesture towards incorporating your past. . Taking it a step further, using fabric from a relatives gown, or altering the gown itself can show respect towards the woman who wore it first. Go Vintage! A Vintage Car to make your grand exit is not only snazzy, its a great way to tie in the past. Or using a vintage luggage in your decor.
Something New ................... You are already going to have plenty of new items on your wedding day, a new dress, perhaps a new hair cut or manicure and new shoes. We see a lot of brides purchase a new perfume for their wedding day to complete their “new look”. Utilize that new last name! Embroider your new monogram on a handkerchief, inside your dress or even order a custom necklace. Get a new robe for yourself to get ready in. Spread the love by getting coordinating robes for your gal pals.
Something Blue ...................Getting handkerchief is the perfect way to incorporate something blue, and wipe away those happy tears! . Sapphires! Do I need to say more? Don’t forget about your feet! We LOVE when a bride takes her something blue to the streets and opts for a pair of blue heels.
