If you’re planning on following the wedding tradition or wearing something old, something borrowed and something blue, you’ve come to the right place. As listed below are a few ideas that you may find helpful if you’re still searching for something old, yet sentimental to wear on your wedding day.
Something Old Wedding Ideas:
A sentimental necklace:
On your wedding day, you might want to wear a sentimental necklace which has a special significance to you. As an example, you might want to wear a locket that was passed down to you by your grandma or your mother’s pearl necklace that you admired as a child. Alternatively, if you’ve inherited a special ring from a family member you may want to wear it on a simple gold chain.
If you have a sentimental necklace that doesn’t suit your wedding dress, you can also wrap your necklace around the base of your bouquet. So that you’ll be able to decorate the bouquet which you’ll carry down your aisle, with something old.
An old charm bracelet:
If you own a gold or silver charm bracelet to which you’ve added charms to over the years, you may want to wear your own charm bracelet to your wedding. Especially if you don’t have any family heirlooms to wear when you exchange your vows with the love of your life.
A vintage pair of silk gloves:
If it suits your wedding dress, you may want to wear a stunning pair of vintage, silk gloves on your special day. Especially if your wedding has a vintage theme or you’ve chosen to opt for a classic gown.
A vintage clutch:
While you might not require a clutch, when you walk down the aisle, you may want to carry a vintage clutch to your reception. In order to carry essentials such as a handkerchief, your lipstick, and setting powder. Especially if you plan on fixing your makeup as the day goes on. So that you’ll be able to look your best for the entirety of your wedding day.
A lace veil:
Even if you prefer modern wedding gowns to vintage-inspired gowns, you can pair a vintage, lace veil with any wedding dress. You may even want to see if your mother, grandmother, or future mother-in-law has a lace veil to loan you for your wedding. As while you may not want to wear their wedding dress, it’s a lovely token to wear their lace veil on your big day.
An old love letter:
If you have a love letter which belongs to your parents or grandparents, you may want to have it photocopied and to use the photocopied letter to wrap your bouquet in. Alternatively, you could sew the photocopied love letter into the hem of your wedding gown. So that it will be with you, on your big day to give you a bit of added luck.
So if you love the traditions which are associated with getting married, it’s a great idea to use one of the fabulous ideas listed above as your something old. To go with your something borrowed and something blue.
