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.

      I've been wondering how to incorporate this tradition.  Thank you all for the ideas!
