I didn't bother to do this. I know, I am probably doomed wink.gif

 

I did have a really cool something old- a necklace that originally belonged to my great, great gma from the 1800's. I suppose my veil was new...

 

but I didn't have a borrowed or blue. Oh well.

I'm undecided on this one. If I have to find/supply most of the items, then screw it.... not going to bother with it. I'm not superstitious about any of it. But I always thought it is really neat when the family of the bride (both sides) supply the items... In my case, I would love to have my mom, my FMIL supply the something old, something new and I would love to have my sister do the something borrowed and FI's sister he's closest to do the something blue. But I fear the idea would backfire on me and I hate the idea of just asking people to do this.... So more than likely, I'll skip it...

 

Oh and speaking of wedding traditions and their origins---- did you know the bridal bouquet began as a way to disguise the stench of people during the middle ages when they only bathed like once or twice a year? And the "wedding cake" actually started off as people hitting each other over the head with hard pieces of bread?

Here's my stuff ~ ~

 

Old = pearls that belonged to my me-maw

New = my dress

Borrowed = a hankie that belongs to my FI great-grandmother (my FMIL is letting me borrow it)

Blue = my garter (my FMIL bought it for me...haven't seen it yet)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
