I thought this was a great "something old..." idea.

    I wanted the seamstress who was taking in my dress to embroider a blue horseshoe on the inside (I think I stole this idea from Jilly) because I LOVE horseshoes and it would be my lucky something blue, so I asked my mom to remind her, but the seamstress ran out of time.
    So, my mom, in her infinite wisdom, went out and bought some charms to sew on the inside of the dress. She bought a silver one that says "wish" which is her wish for a good life for me, a blue crown that says "princess" since that would be my something blue and I call my dog "princess," (so it would be like Lu was there with me) and a little silver horseshoe. I'm going to try to find one of my old charm bracelets and get one off of there for my something old.
    Maybe this has been discussed before, but I thought it was a really stellar idea.

              Oh, and of course my "something borrowed" is the traveling starfish.

                Charms sewn inside the dress is a great idea! I would have never thought of it. Thanks Laura! You'll have to get a picture of that!
