What is Your Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue?

Recommended Posts

I had always been told this tradition was something bridesmaids/maid of honour took care of. However, I was just in a wedding and the bride did it all herself? Is this typical?

I always thought of it as a group effort - bride, MOB, bridal party, etc. 

 

Here's my example: 

something old: my mom gave me a piece of lace from my grandmother's wedding veil

something new: dress, shoes, etc. 

something blue: I had a dress label made that included the blue that was one of our wedding colors (and a blue ribbon in my flowers, and a blue jeweled starfish - I went overboard with blue!)

something borrowed: this had stumped me, but a dear friend surprised me by sending me her handkerchief she used in her wedding as a loaner. she wasn't able to attend, so it meant that much more to me to have it for my wedding. I laundered it and sent it back when we returned from Mexico.

 

bottom line (as with most things wedding) - do what works best for you.

Here's what I have so far

 

Something new: My dress and shoes

Something old: My best friend died 8yrs ago and I have an old wife beater of his. I'm going to cut a piece out in the shape of a heart and have it sewn into the inside of bodice of my dress

Something borrowed: ??????

Something blue: I haven't finalized this yet but I really really want to have my name (Mrs. Tuff) sewn inside the hem line of my dress in blue. Hopefully, the place I will have my dress altered will be able to do this.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
