    It's just a coin (a three pence bit - my family are British)

    something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a penny for your shoe...

    a thruppenny bit was used in place of a penny so i've been told

        How do you stitch that into a garter?

          My mom just put the thruppenny on the back of my garter, put a small piece of fabric over it and stitched around the edge of the fabric piece

            I thought it was "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a lucky sixpence in your shoe"??

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

              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)
