I wasn't procrastinating or anything. I just didn't think about it. And after blogging about our wedding for over a year before our actual celebration, it kindof blows my mind that there were still so many things that I never gave thought to!
However - this tradition sparked interest in my little sisters...who proceeded to ENSURE that I would have all of these NECESSARY elements for my walk down the aisle. :-) I'm lucky! My sisters were so on top of things.
Obviously...my dress was brand spanking new - have bought it a couple short weeks before the wedding itself! This was FABULOUS. Ya'll know I ended up loving that dress. Glad I went for it.
My bouquet was wrapped in a hankerchief that belonged to my Great-Grandmother. It was embroidered with the initial of her married name: "K". It was subtle, and I'm sure many people didn't know it was there...but it was a special touch.
Something Borrowed & Blue.
My sister was a doll and let me borrow one of her pretty rings. Now, my baby sister has QUITE a lovely jewelry collection - full of rubies and gems and diamonds and Tiffany's. But I knew IMMEDIATELY which piece I wanted to wear. A big beautiful blue topaz ring....my birthstone. Looked perfect. And yes, after the wedding I asked my sister if I could keep it. Ha....denied!
Did you take part in this tradition? What did you use!?
