    Something old....something new...

    Hi Ladies.  I am doing this tradition and I'm sure others are doing it or did it.  I thought it would be fun to say what you did.  Also it might give an idea to the recently engaged ladies to see what you're doing.

    I'll start. 
    Old -  My mom's veil and I'm pinning my dad's wedding ring to the inside of my dress
    New - My officant and dear friend bought me my earrings for the day
    Borrowed - I'm borrowing a beautiful necklace from MOH's mom
    Blue - My promise ring FI gave me 3 years ago.  It's aquamarine.

    Anyone else care to share??

    The only one I was going to do was "blue," and I bought a pair of thong panties with blue diamond rings and "I do" on them (from Victoria's Secret)...and totally forgot to wear them!

    Old: kimono that will be reworked into a sash/train.
    New: dress.
    Borrowed: Nothing yet, I'm sure something will be by the time the wedding rolls around.
    Blue: dress and diamond in my engagement ring. BTW, a blue diamond is much pretty than a [insert adjective describing brown diamond] diamond. :)

    Re: Something old....something new...

    Forgot to mention as part of my old that my mom (who does not have a green thumb) managed to keep alive a plant my dad brought to her and me in the hospital when I was born.  Her dream was always that it would be in my bouquet.  30-odd  years later, a few sprigs made it in there.

    I totally forgot my blue underwear too!  My best friend was still at the hotel with my room key, so she brought them to me.  Finally found her about three minutes before I had to be out for pictures!  As for the rest:
    Old: I carried a handkerchief given to me by my grandmother (embroidered in blue, so that would have been my blue back-up)
    New: Dress (wish my seamstress had stitched my date in -- that's so cool!), shoes
    Borrowed: My mom's earrings
