Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue! It’s a tradition that many of us want to include in our wedding day. You won’t find it hard to include something new, because, well, you’re buying a bunch of new stuff. Something blue is already pretty easy (if you’re stuck, check this out). Finding a way to incorporate your Something Borrowed will require a little bit of planning.
It’s said that your Something Borrowed is one way to have someone else’s good fortune rub off on you. So, select a married couple and ask if you could borrow something. This could be a family member, close friend or someone on your bridal party. And as for what you could borrow… well, we’ve got some fabulous ideas for you!
Wear it as it is or have it altered to suit your style. You could borrow from someone you know (like your mam!) or rent from a bridal store.

Borrow a beautiful hair clip, a coverup or a fabulous denim jacket to add to your bridal style.
