Old, New, Borrowed & Blue...

Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

I think I have most of my "somethings" figured out...

Something Old
My More-Grandma's Handkerchief. My mom and aunt and older cousin, Kassie, all carried this in their wedding bouquets. It is very old and delicate and disintegrating in the center from being folded for so many years, but when tucked delicately into a bouquet, its ruffled edges have the appearance of a butterfly. My cousin, Bekah (Kassie's sister), is getting married in June and she will also carry the hankie.

Something New
Probably my Dress? I haven't decided if this is going to be for sure what I consider my "something new," it kinda feels like a cop out to me?

Something Borrowed
This is the one I'm still not sure on...

Something Blue
The Star Sapphire Ring my dad gave to my mom. My mom is giving me a gorgeous star sapphire ring that my dad gave to her. Sapphire is my birthstone and I've always loved the ring. I almost cried when my mom said she was giving it to me for my something blue. I will probably have it resized, I have, as my aunt puts it, "sausage fingers" and although the ring fits on my pinkie, I'd like to wear it on the ring finger of my right hand.

Are you going to have programs at your wedding? If you are, may I suggest putting what your old, new, borrowed and blue items are? It's so nice for your guests to have something personal to read about your event.

Good luck!
