Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue

Posted in: Wedding Catering Raleigh

Are you getting married soon? One of the most fun parts of the marriage ceremony is coming up with ideas to celebrate the tradition of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

Today’s post is going to focus on fun ideas for the first part, something old and new. In the second part of this series we talk about the borrowed and blue items. Searching for the best Raleigh caterers for your wedding? Call Catering by Design. You’ll love our prices.

Something Old

Old Photos – One really neat idea we came across on the internet was using old photos of either family members or their weddings. You can clip these out and make a locket to wear as jewelry, or tie a few of them to your wedding bouquet.

Family Jewelry – Do you have a nice piece of heirloom jewelry that once belonged to one of your ancestors? Depending on the piece, and its value, you may be able to have it refashioned. Ideas like taking an antique brooch and transforming it into an elegant hair clip can make for beautiful accessories.

Another jewelry option that we also love is sewing the piece directly onto your wedding gown. Taking an old pearl necklace and using the pearls as beading could look incredible.

Something New

Champagne Flutes – Put a new twist on an old tradition by having your own personalized champagne flutes made for the big wedding toast. You can find these available fairly inexpensively on the internet, and you have many other design options as well.

Matching Tattoos – For couples looking to take a trip on the alternative side, getting matching tattoos can be a great way to show off your creative side when incorporating something new. Don’t settle for initials, look at matching arrows, key and lock, anchors, or anything that symbolizes your love and commitment.

Be sure to join us for part two of this series where we will be covering something borrowed and blue.
