Something Borrowed

Want to knock out two birds with one stone? Then combine your something borrowed with your something old. In the first part of the series we talked about converting old jewelry, and did you know that can count as your something borrowed as well? You might want to read over the entry for a better idea.

Another great idea is borrowing a vintage clutch. Your grandmother’s clutch would probably make for an outstanding accessory. If you need even more ideas on ways to combine the borrowed and old approach, try asking for wedding veils, shoes, lace gloves, or perfume. Since something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness, all of these will make great options for fulfilling this portion of the checklist.

Something Blue

Something blue stands for the love you share and your fidelity to one another. For your blue items, you have so many options that we could do probably do a whole series on this one element. For starters, if blue is one of the primary or secondary colors in your wedding palette, then you’re covered. If not, don’t worry because we can help you out.

For simple starters, here are the most common wedding items to make blue:

  • Shoes
  • Soles of Shoes
  • Undergarments
  • Garter
  • Earrings and other Jewelry
  • Hair Accessories
  • Nail Polish
  • Wedding Bouquet
  • Bouquet or Stem Holder

A unique and creative idea for this item is custom stitching. If you have something blue of your soon-to-be husband’s, like a handkerchief or old shirt, consider having it stitched into the inside of your wedding dress in the shape of heart. Have it placed where he will see it when he goes to remove your garter. It will make for a really nice surprise!
