Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure if this was a thread yet but I thought it would be fun to share our own ideas, attire, traditions and over all take on this wedding day staple :)

 

My Something Old: Paloma Blanca #3802, Natural Color

Me & my groom are paying for wedding, but my parents were wonderful enough to give me a budget for my dress. My search started and I found my perfect dress, which fit in the budget... so I thought could I find the dress lovingly worn for half the $$? Then I could have my dream dress AND DREAM SHOES! So I was lucky enough to find my Paloma Blanca in the Natural color and the same size that I needed at 1/3 of the cost with alterations!!

Fun Wedding Cake Toppers Grooms, Garters, Pillows

 

I am a Florida State fan & my groom Univ. of Miami, so I'm having one made with his logos on one side and mine on the other so It will be similar to these. I want to kind of trick him to think it is just Miami, but when you flip it over it has my team :)

 

Something Borrowed: Veil and Hair Flower

My sister is getting married a few months before me and we wanted to borrow something from each other. So our grandmother wanted to purchase us a veil or head band to wear. We decided on a very simple hand-made veil by a family friend and will be ordering a hair flower. We will borrow the items from each other :).

These pictures are our inspirations

So I have just a small update to my traditions... I've decided not to go with the Blue Manolos... crazy I know! When I tried them on they were too tall for my dress and the beading on the top of the shoe was catching on the hem... tear! So I spent the last 2 1/2 months looking for something that would work... seriously the shoes took longer to find than my dress!!!

I found these Kate Spade hot pink shoes and couldn't stop thinking about them and of course they were sold out!!! Thankfully Zappos brought them back and I ordered them right away! I am so happy with them!! Now I need my something Blue! Oh this is a never ending process :) but a fun one :)!!
