Something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new ideas for the bride

Ideas the Bride Will Love for Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Something Old, and Something New

Something borrowed ideas for the bride may include your venue! It's no secret you are borrowing this space. Your venue plays a key important role in your wedding, so why not use it for your something borrowed? 


Another popular idea for something borrowed is to use fabric from a relatives wedding gown and wrap it around your wedding bouquet! How sweet to include something more sentimental on your big day while also including someone else's wedding gown.


Wedding veils are crazy expensive! Some are hundreds if not thousands of dollars! All for a thin, see through piece of fabric! Sounds crazy, but borrowing a wedding veil is a neat way to incorporate your wedding wear into your Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Something Old, and Something New. Plus, if you have a family member that knows how to handle fabric well and make alterations, add jewels, beads, or whatever your heart desires, there is all favor in doing so!

After all, you may be tired of wearing white to everything and this would be a fun, non-traditional way to go about the day of wedding robes.
