    I did a french pedicure with a blue flower on each of my big toes. It was very cute!

      I am walking barefoot also and plan on using the blue on my toes as well.

      I have chosen Blue Lace : Nicole by OPI

      It matches my wedding color and the bridesmaid dresses :)

      Out of your picks, I like OPI No Room For The Blues.

      But they all would look great!

        I thought about doing that but then found a pair of hanky panky's in the lightest blue color :)
        I dont know the shades of the colors you listed but I am sure one of them will be fantastic!

          I think that is a cute idea. I like No Room for the Blues :)

            Thanks, girls! I'm glad it's not cheesy. I just wanted to do something a little different.

            I like the hanky panky idea too. Very cute!

              Hello past and future Bride

              I am trying to decide what kinds of items I should be looking at for my Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue.

              I would love to hear what past brides used and what future brides are using.

              I also wanted to know do people still do this tradition?

              Thanks ladies - Have a great day

                Here's an idea. Someone on this forum had this idea. They took that saying and applied it to martinis. Old - Classic Martini; New - Apple Martini or Cosmopolitan; Borrowed - Feel free to come up with something; Blue - Blue Martini.
                - Grace
                Location - Chateau de Challain, Challain la Potherie, France
                Engagement Date - Sept. 6, 2008
                Wedding Date - Sept. 9, 2009

                  Your dress is normally the something new, garter is usually blue, but often now girls are having blue nail polish or shoes/purse etc. You could even use your wedding jewellery for colour too
                  Borrowed could be jewellery or whatever.. someone has lent me a flower girl "purse" but I don't think I'm going to use it.
                  Another popular trend is to have coloured shoes.. I am going to have fuschia (sp?) ballet flats I think... I can't do heels b/c then I would be taller then my FI.
                  Hope this helps...

                    Here are a few links I found through the search engine..


                    I personally had:
                    Old - my grandmother's anniversary ring that she gave me (plus she couldn't be at the wedding so it was my way of including her)
                    New - so many things...dress, shoes, jewellery, etc.
                    Borrowed - I used my friends veil
                    Blue - stones in my shoes, my wedding band has sapphires, and my undies said "I DO" in blue!

                    Good Luck!

                      Something old - my nana is lending me a braselet that was her mums.
                      Something new - my wedding dress
                      Something borrowed - bracelet from nana again
                      Somethign blue - the sash on my dress
                      And a six pence in your shoe - Just got one from England. That was a hard find.
