That ‘Something Blue’

As the old saying goes, the Bride is to carry…

Something Old, Something New,
Something Borrowed and Something Blue

on her wedding day for good luck. I actually love this tradition, and have finally found my ‘something blue.’

I originally thought my cute orange and blue garter, I picked up a few months ago, would be my ‘something blue.’ But, when I really thought about it, I wouldn’t be wearing my garter for the whole wedding (probably slipping it on a few minutes before the garter toss), and felt I needed a ‘something blue’ that would be with me throughout the day. Little did I know that my earrings would become my ‘something blue’!

Check out these beautiful Aquamarine drop earrings Mr. Knight bought me!
You know they are a winner when Gator Kitty gives her ‘paw of approval’!
(Yes… that would be my wedding shoes in the background. I decided to have a wedding accessory photo shoot one afternoon.)

These earrings are absolutely beautiful in person (pictures do not do them justice!), and the Aquamarine is such a pale blue that it will be barely noticeable (plus the vintage look of them goes perfectly with my dress).

So… this is my status so far:

Something Old: Still searching, though the vintage lace I bought on eBay to make my veil would suffice. But, still looking.
Something New: My dress! (and just about everything else I’m wearing that day)
Something Borrowed: Still searching!
Something Blue: My earrings!

So, as it stands, I still need my ‘something borrowed’ which could also work for my ‘something old.’ Any suggestions?

What are you planning to wear/wore on your wedding day to satisfy this time-less tradition?

    Great picture sweety! :-) Glad to see Gator Kitty approves—that’s quite important, really.

    Love these earrings Kim!!! They will be perfect! My something old and borrowed was my moms anklet with a vintage cameo charm that was my grandmothers. It was really special but was terrified it would fall off sometime during the day!
    P.S. Gator Kitty is so cute!

    Ooohhh I likey!!! My old was vintage bracelet, my borrowed was a ring from my mom on her wedding, my blue was undies, my new was everything else.

    You can always scout out family members/friends for borrowed.

    Kim those are lovely! Ryan had an aquamarine ring of mine re-done in platinum and resized for my birthday, so I’ll be wearing that. Those will be a great thing to wear after the wedding!
