      I think this is one of the funnest things about being a bride (ok maybe not the most fun but in the top 5)...getting to choose your old new blue and borrowed! Here is my list so far...

      Old - My MOH who is my cousin suggested to my mom that i wear an necklace that was our great grandma's, which is over 100 years old. it's not what i pictured around my neck but i think it's perfect!
      New - when i was a little girl my dad told me if i married at "dirt bag" he'd buy me pearls, but if i married a good guy, he'd buy me diamonds. i like to remind him of that....so whatever it is he buys me, will be my new....better be diamonds! hahah
      Borrowed - I'm not sure yet I don't have that one pinned down yet
      Blue - is my gold and blue strappy sandals.

        Old = mother's wedding band (my father is deceased, so it was a special thing to me)

        New = Dress, shoes, etc.

        Borrowed = tennis bracelet

        Blue = DIY bride panties, b/c we didn't do the garter toss, so I didn't feel the need to wear a garter.

        Hope that helps; good luck!!

          Here is what i had:
          old: mother's wedding band (my wedding day was also my parent's 30th anniversary so the wedding band was 30 years old that day)
          new: dress, headband, etc.
          borrowed: my aunts (on my mother's side of the family) bracelet
          blue: my aunt (on my father's side of the family) made me two little blue hair clips

          I was really happy I had something from both my mother and my fathers side of the family.

              I'll share since I just figured it out!

              Old - I made the earrings my grandma wore on her wedding day into a brooch that will either go on the tie of my dress or on the bouquet.
              New - My dress
              Borrowed - My mom is lending me the earrings that my dad gave her on their wedding day
              Blue - Blue I Do rhinestones on my shoes

                Yikes I still don't have my borrowed! Any suggestions?

                Something Old - my grandma's diamond which we had reset for the engagement ring
                Something New - hmm EVERYTHING
                Something Borrowed - I already have my veil, dress, etc and I'm not wearing a garter.
                Something Blue - my shoes

                  It doesn't have to be something that you wear... my BF borrowed the cake cutting set that her parents used for their wedding. I thought it was a really nice touch!

                    Old: My mom's wishbone brooch, from 1948 (she wore it for good luck at her own wedding)
                    New: My garter
                    Borrowed: The handkerchief my oldest sister carried at her wedding fifteen years prior (it was embroidered with blue flowers as her "something blue")
                    Blue: An aquamarine bracelet given to me as a bridal gift by my other sister (aquamarine is my birthstone)

                      Old: ribbon from my sorority initiation ceremony that will be sewn into the hem of my dress.

                      New: my dress

                      Borrowed: not sure yet. I'll have to see if one of my married friends has something I can borrow.

                      Blue: the ribbon around my bouquet
