Wedding Weekend Part III: Old, new, borrowed, blue

Monday, May 19, 2014

I began thinking about my "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" soon after getting engaged. 

My 'something old' was a gorgeous white linen handkerchief of my Mama's [my mom's mom] who died when I was 11. It was even monogrammed with her initials which made it even more special. My amazing bouquet of white peonies was wrapped in it. I miss her everyday so I knew I wanted some part of her there with me on my wedding day.

My 'something new' was my dress. New and amazing.

I knew my 'something borrowed' would be my sister's wedding veil. She wore a plain cathedral length veil, which is exactly what I wanted. When we got it out of the closet my heart sunk-- it had a huge rip down the middle. SO SAD. We took it to my next dress fitting to see if there was anything they could do, but the rip was so close to the middle that the veil would end up being not gathered at all at the top after they fixed it. So, it was a no-go.

My 'something borrowed' ended up being a gorgeous diamond bracelet of my mom's. Vintage, dainty, and timeless. I tried to keep it after the wedding... she didn't agree.
Sadly, I didn't get a great picture of it. But you can see it in this hilarious pic with my niece-- too interested in the photographer to give her Owey a kiss.

My 'something blue' was my shoes. They were Badgley Mischka and matched my belt. I knew from the beginning that I wanted blue shoes, and that they had to be Carolina blue. Hubs loved that about them ;)

Hope everyone had a great Monday!
