6 "Something Old" Ideas for Your Wedding Day

Last week we showed you some of our favorite something blue ideas and while something old is a bit more personal, we wanted to share some of our favorites that we have seen at weddings. And it may help create a little spark for you to decide on your something old for your wedding day!


A Something Old Brooch

This is a photo of a bride having her "something old" pinned to her wedding dress. It was a brooch that her grandmother and mother both wore on their wedding days. How adorable is that?? Photo by The Bride List preferred vendor Bolt Photography.


A Sixpence

A couple of months before my mom was married, my grandmother (her mom) found a sixpence on her travels around the world. And because it is said to be good luck, my mom stuck it in her shoe as she married the love of her life. And just a couple of weeks before my wedding, my grandma was travel (as she does frequently) and found this sixpence on the street. And so, I wore it as my something old in my shoe on my wedding day!

Antique Handkerchief
