Today we are starting a new series called, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue”. As many of you know, this is an old rhyme that has been around for a long time. Each item essentially represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she would wear all four items she would have a happy marriage.
Something old will be the topic for today and we’ll continue next Tuesday when I am back! 🙂 So the idea of “something old” symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past. There are many ways to tie this in on your wedding day. Here are a few ideas that will hopefully spark your “something old”.
- a brooch (get creative: you can even put it on your shoes!)
-Use Vintage silk/ribbon/lace
- as a belt
- as part of the dress (could even use part of grandmother’s lace/dress, etc.)
- for the flower bouquet
- for veil
-Carry an old picture
- of grandparents and or parents on their wedding day
- when you were little
-Carry a vintage compact
-Carry a childhood treasure (old jewelry)
The options are endless. “Something old” is probably Serendipity’s favorite item considering vintage is our specialty! So if you are right there with us, then I would suggest matching your “something old” to perhaps your vintage invites. It would make your good-luck charm all the more special and coordinate well! Just add your personal take on it, let us know what you are going to do for your special day, and we will incorporate it in to our next post! 🙂
