There is nothing wrong with the typical antique jewelry or handkerchief passed down from granny for your "something old" but why not take it literally and go for a completely "old" theme. By making your fashion in the wedding vintage you can bet you will not regret your look. You will be classy and timeless in a vintage gown perfect for your frame. Take the leap and completely commit to having something old!

Something new is generally the easiest part to uphold in the tradition. So why not go with every bride’s favorite and grab a brand new pair of sparkly shoes. Adding a little new shoe bling is always a great idea. Go ahead and treat yourself to the best gift of all. New shoes!!!



Instead of borrowing a piece of jewelry or a little trinket you have to stuff away under your dress. Borrow a brooch from a close family member and add it to your bouquet. Not only is this a beautiful addition to your bouquet, borrowing it from a family member adds the perfect sentimental touch.
