Something Old, something New, something Borrowed something Blue!

check, check, check check!

My something Old is a baby Bonnet that was given to me when I was born. It was also meant for me to convert into a hanky on my wedding day. I am SO glad my mom held onto this for me! You can find something similar here. I think I might get our wedding date and initials embroidered on it and use it to wrap around my bouquet. 

For my something New, well that was easy, that will be my gown!

My something Borrowed is my cousin's cathedral veil. I read that you are suppose to borrow from a happily married woman so she can also lend the bride some of her own marital happiness to carry into the new marriage. My cousin is very happily married and has the 3 cutest kids on the planet.  So I really nailed that one down. I was THRILLED when she offered me her veil to borrow!

For something Blue I just HAD to splurge when I came across the Florrie Mitton etsy shop!

 I ordered this garter

and asked that she add the horseshoe charm that's on this one to it.

On a side note, my photographer just finished editing our engagement photos. I LOVE THEM and can't wait to share!


  1. That is so cute! :) I'm wearing my great, great, great grandma's glove (that she wore on her wedding day} tucked inside my garter for my something old! :)
