Looking for Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue? START HERE!

Recommended Posts

Something Old: Unrelated to my wedding, my aunt had given me her childhood charm bracelet. She removed the charms and kept them since they were things personal to her (high school ring, etc). I purchased grilled sea glass from etsy.com and had a jeweler attach the sea glass pieces as the charms. (I got married on the beach).

 

Something New: This is the easiest one! Dress, shoes, jewelry, hair flower, clutch...

 

Something Borrowed: I had a lot of trouble with this one. I borrowed my friend's earrings for the rehearsal dinner. After reading some recommendations for "something borrowed" on various Internet sites, I decided that this counted!

 

Something Blue: The drilled sea glass charms mentioned above were an aqua color, but that wasn't blue enough for me (kind of green-ish). My garter belt had a ribbon with my college's name on it. The school colors are blue and white. Viola, my "something blue."

I don't think "something old" needs to be a specific age. I think anything that you didn't buy specifically for the wedding and is used could probably count. Now that I think about it, other than my "something old," everything down to my underwear was purchased just for my wedding day! So I am all the more convinced of this.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
