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?
