Old (something to connect you to your family): I carried my great grandma's hankerchief and Mike's grandma's handkerchief. I pinned them around the handle of my bouquet. I also had a picture of Mike's grandpa and grandma with me. New (something to present your new life): My custom dress. Borrowed (something borrowed from a happily married person so you can borrow their good fortune): Emerald earrings from my bridesmaid who has been happily married 25 years. Blue: (married in blue always be true): My mother's sapphire pin she used as her something blue. I skipped the sixpence.
