How to Incorporate Something Old, New, Borrowed, & Blue

Something Old...

Don't overthink about how an older item will fit into your style. Choose an item that has sentimental value to you and adds a bit of nostalgia. Consider wearing your grandma's pearls or adding an elegant broach to your bouquet. Taylor wore a vintage engagement ring for her "something old."

 

 

 

 

 

Something New...

More often than not, your wedding dress is your "something new" aspect, and that's completely fine. Make it you, make it spectacular, and flaunt it! Taylor wore a jaw-dropping lace sheath gown with a high-neck and low-back from designer Grace Loves Lace.

Something Borrowed...

Taylor borrowed a gray faux fur to keep her warm during the ceremony and pictures. This added element not only served a practical purpose, but also added a soft, cozy aspect to her overall look. And the versatility of the fur allowed her to wear it as necessary.

Something Blue...

Don't hide your "something blue" where no one can see it; embrace it, let it pop! Use this piece to make a statement, whether in your jewelry, hair piece, bouquet, or as Taylor did with her shoes. When she found these luxe blue suede heels, she knew they would coordinate perfectly with Charlie's blue suede suit. Match made in heaven!
