Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Oh, hello September! You sure caught us by surprise. We will happily transition from scorching hot days to cool breezes, crispy leaves and pumpkin lattes. If only Dallas weather would follow suit!

When the weather starts changing (i.e. it will happen closer to November for us Dallasites), we can’t help but to start thinking about engagement season—the holidays! Don’t worry, we haven’t pulled out our pumpkins and garlands yet (hold up, Target!) but we just love to start daydreaming on Pinterest about wedding details and fun new ideas.

Enter the age-old adage and good luck “charm” for any wedding: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

For some brides, this is very stressful. All the wedding etiquette rules and now you have to be creative and wear something old, new, borrowed AND blue? As with most wedding traditions, we believe the “rules” can be bent a bit and you can do what you want. Adding pieces to your wedding day getup can be special and memorable. According to The Knot, “Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity”….and there’s an ending to that saying: “A Sixpence in your shoe”, but that’s just been done away with for most. You learn something new everyday!

To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve selected some of our favorite SO, SN, SB, SB options.

Something Old:


[your mom or grandma’s pearl necklace]


[your grandma’s brooch used as a head piece]


[a family member’s rosary, necklace, piece of fabric wrapped around bouquet]


Something New:


[earrings from your groom]


[new shoes]


Something Borrowed:


[a fur shawl or lace jacket from your mom or grandma]


Something Blue:


[shoes or monogram—we can do this for you!]


[wedding gown sashe]
