Posts Tagged ‘something borrowed’

Just returned from the Opimg_1442en House at Adornments.  Finally got to meet Laura, Alexis and Lucinda from Adornments.  The Grays from Gray Photography were there (adorable couple with amazing work!)  I met Charlie Thompson, who makes incredible titanium and wood rings.  Schakolad was there with their amazing chocolate confections.  I met Ashley Carter from Ashley’s Bride Guide.  She is so cute and it’s easy to see why her site is so popular.

All in all, a great afternoon to show people what I do.  If you missed it, here’s a picture of my display.  Visit the blog often.  I’ll be updating with new things shortly!

Each item has to do with good luck for the bride to have a happy marriage.  Something old represented the bride’s family and her past.  Something new was the hope for the future happiness ahead.  Something borrowed was usually something from a friend who had a happy marriage, and meant they could count on their friends, and something blue pertained to purity and fidelity.  The sixpence was to signify wealth and financial security.

When thinking of what your items will be, make sure you choose things that mean something to you.  For instance, the 1840 gold piece in the picture has been handed down to the oldest daughter in my family on her wedding day since 1868.  I was the last recipient, and my daughter will be the next “holder” this year.  This piece represents more than a century and a half of history for my family.  The other pieces such as a special piece of jewelry or maybe a hankie could be a thoughtful something borrowed (or something old for that matter!)
