something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

Looking for ideas for something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Try these:

Something Old
A locket containing a picture of your great-grandparents
A family Rosary for the ceremony
Antique combs, pins, or barrettes
A baby bracelet from a family member used around the base of your bouquet

Something New
A key to your new home, if you're moving in together for the first time, hidden in your bouquet wrap
A lucky penny minted in the year of your wedding
Everything else!

Something Borrowed
A flower from a loved one's garden, "borrowed" for your bouquet
Dad's handkerchief, tucked under your bodice
A fur stole, for a winter wedding
Any jewelry you've been eyeing on a friend or a family member

Something Blue
The sash on your dress
A bouquet of blue blooms
A blue garter or undergarment
Sapphire jewelry
A blue pen, for signing the marriage certificate
