As title suggests. Did you follow this and if so why / why not?
What did you get / buy if you did?
The mere fact that I married suggested a nod to convention.
Old - Gran's pearls
New - garter
Borrowed - Gran's pearls
Blue - garter.
The pearls were real and later burgled from my house, after her death. The garter was vile and nylon. For some reason they didn't nick it.
Old - can't remember
New - the dress
Borrowed and blue - necklace from Mum
Are they supposed to bring good luck? Don't I remember something about a sixpence in your shoe too?
Old - my vintage wedding dress
New - a diamond necklace
Borrowed -diamond earrings
Blue -blue slippers (I had sprained my ankle the week before)
Got married in Rome (I'm a Classicist)....
Just remembered - Grandma's watch! She left it to me when she died. (I am sure you were all agog for that information.)
Old - Mr Belle! Actually it was the yellow diamond in my engagement ring which is millions of years old as are most diamonds
New - my dress and shoes
Borrowed - the beach we got married on in Mauritius
Blue - a tiny blue crystal horseshoe tied into my bouquet
Old - late mother's pearl ring
New - dress
Borrowed - a pen from hubby in my bag!
Blue - undies
We didn't have a wedding, per se, we added 10 minutes to our son's naming ceremony, and it was all a big secret, we told no one, therefore could not ask friends/family for anything suitable to borrow, so pen it was.
I'm an ole romantic I am......
Old - the silk and lace for my underskirt
New - the dress
Borrowed - Mum's necklace
Blue - tiny blue ribbon bows on the underskirt.
Old - grandmother's opal brooch.

Borrowed - mum's 1950s handbag.
Blue - velvet coat.
old - ivory satin gloves i bought in a jumble sale when i was 15
new - the dress
blue - sapphires (well, very small ones. all together they might have made a whole stone!)
borrowed... umm... the shoes, i suppose. they were supposedly for my SIL's wedding and were to be dyed to match the bridesmaid's dress. so i wore them for my wedding first!
oh yes. and the ring. i managed to take wrong ring box, which was empty, so the trainee registrar lent me hers just for the ceremony!
What a great thread!
Old - me and him.
New - my dress and shoes.
Borrowed - the tourist walking past our wedding 'site'. She was great and took some very good pictures.
Blue - a necklace which went with the dress.
It didn't last though, tut. Still love him though : )
Old - grannie's ruby pendant
New - dress, & earrings that husband had made to match grannies pendant.
Borrowed - lace hanky from aunt
Blue - token lacy garter that I removed as soon as I could!
I am struggling to remember.
New were my dress, hat for the day, 2 pairs of shoes and silver Ming the Merciless cape for the evening.
Blue was my dress and earrings.
But old and borrowed? I am pretty sure I had both but have absolutely no idea what they were.
Mind you, I am not sure what year I got married as I have forgotten that as well.
Old - my grandmother's wedding ring made into earrings. I wanted to use it as my wedding ring but it was too small and too elaborately decorated to make it bigger. The jeweller suggested earrings and I'm so glad he did.
New - shoes
Borrowed- my wedding dress, from the local amateur dramatic society, it was a real Scarlett O'Hara type dress.
Blue - garter
Old and borrowed - my late father's handkerchief (had it tucked into the waistband of my underskirt for the whole day!
New - necklace and earrings (and dress and shoes I suppose but the jewellry was the "official" one!)
Blue - my eyes. Had used up all budget by that point
New- dress and bracelet that my OH bought as a wedding present.
Blue- garter which I hated
Borrowed- I honestly can't remember but I know I had all three things, because I remember checking them off with my Mum.
It is 20 years ago at the end of the month and 28 together.
Nah, didn't observe convention for either marriage (nor was either wedding in any respect conventional).
I popped out of work in my lunchbreak to get married so couldn't faff about with the normal wedding stuff.
Nah its all b0locks. I didn't bother and 30 years soon it doesn't seem to have had a detrimental impact.
Old - gran's pearl necklace
New - dress & shoes & rings
Borrowed - grandad's handkerchief
Blue - matching underwear set
It's worked for 20 years so it's so far so good.
