Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

Today for Wedding Wednesday, I want to share with you what I used for the traditional Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

My something old was my great-grandma’s wedding band. We decided to use it for my wedding band. I had it since I was about 16, but I always wore it around my neck. It went along perfectly with my engagement ring. And it’s special because it has my great-grandma’s and great-grandpa’s initials in it.

My something new was my engagement ring. I absolutely adore my simple white-gold band with my princess-cut diamond. {Swoon}

My amazing friend, Sarah, let me borrow her blusher to go with my veil. I couldn’t find one- at all!- so she let me borrow hers. 🙂

And my something blue is very special, too. I am the third “Diane” in my family. My grandma, mom and I, all have “Diane” as our middle name. My grandma (the first “Diane”) had this hankie her wedding. I tucked this gorgeous thing into my wedding bouquet.

Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

I had such a wonderful time coming up with these things and seeing how they all came together. Did you do the “Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue” tradition? If so, what were they?

  1. I absolutely loved this! your something old and something blue warmed my heart soo much! super precious ❤ thank you for sharing

  2. I love that you were able to incorporate so many meaningful things into your “old, new, borrowed, blue.” I especially love the blue hankie. It’s so beautiful!
    I suppose that’s why I didn’t follow this tradition when I got married – it didn’t really mean anything to me, and I didn’t want to do something just for the sake of doing it.

    But I think what you were able to do was absolutely wonderful. 🙂

  3. I LOVE that you have your great grandmother’s wedding band–that is SO special! And that hankie is absolutely beautiful! Such a great way to incorporate something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue!

  4. I just love these and how each of them were so close to your heart. That wedding band and engagement ring look perfect together too – it was meant to be! 🙂 Thanks for linking up with us!

  5. That’s so sweet! I love the hankie and ring! The diamond in my engagement ring was passed down to me from my great aunt. One of our colors was blue so I wore blue shoes and earrings and borrowed a bracelet to wear. My wedding dress was new, but I cannot remember what my something old was (and our wedding was less than 3 years ago).

  6. I love seeing people’s wedding details 🙂 Thank you for sharing, Hannah! My something old was a crystal necklace from a dear lady who has known me since I was a baby, my something blue were my shoes and the sapphires in my engagement ring, something borrowed was also the crystal necklace and my something new was my dress ❤ These traditions really add to the special-ness of a bride's wedding day 🙂

  7. Very nice!, having your grandma’s band is so lovely. I never had anything like this for my wedding as it was just a living room thing. Your special day will be Incredible I’m sure!

  8. this is beautiful. my grandma gave me my own hankerchief at my bridal shower – its my favorite gift and one that i’ll cherish forever. i’m sure yours is just the same.

  9. This is so cute! I love seeing all the cute ways that people incorporate items from that saying into their wedding. Thanks for joining us for Hump Day Happenings!
