My Somethings

Everyone knows the saying, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue", right? Am I taking part in that tradition you ask? Of course. I don't really know why but I just feel like I just should.

My Something New: (There are lots - but I'll pick one)

My beautiful, wonderful I love thee!

My Something Blue(s): (It's one of my colors so there are lots of these too!)

Let's see...there's my ring, my shoes (both pairs), my dress sash, my wedding jewelry (earrings and necklace) and my cake stand. That's kinda a lot. What can I say, I love me some blue!

My Something Borrowed: (it's also blue, surprise surprise!)

Tradition says the "something borrowed" should come from a happily married woman. I immediately thought of my Aunt. She and my Uncle have been married for over 10 years and are very happy. I also wanted to borrow something from her because she will not be able to make it to my wedding. I'm happy that she had a garter for me to borrow because, A. It's beautiful, and B. I wanted a garter. I just didn't have the energy to make one. Now I can check that off the list. Easy peasy!

My Something Old: (or Four)

I don't have this yet. I've asked each of my grandparents to contribute a something old for my wedding. I don't think any of them are going to be able to make it down here to Texas so I want to have something of theirs with me on my big day. I'm not sure what they'll come up with but I'll be happy with anything.

Are ya'll following this tradition? If so, what are your somethings?


  1. Hi Jen! Your garter is actually on its way to you now! You are going to look so very beautiful. I am happy and proud to lend something to you for your special day. :) Love, Theresa

  2. The garter is beautiful, and your wedding jewelry is stunning!

  3. Yeah, that is a beautiful garter. And I'll remind Gramma about the something old...
