Now that you have the something old and the something new covered, you need to find a way to include something borrowed into the wedding day. Here are five ways you can do just that!
A bride can carry a vintage clutch that belongs to her mother or grandmother to incorporate something old into her wedding day. She can use it to carry items such as a handkerchief for those emotional moments during the day or a lipstick to touch up her makeup after the many kisses she will share with her new husband. Not to mention, the clutch is another added accessory to the bride’s wedding day attire.
Going along with the vintage theme, a bride and her husband can eat off of borrowed wedding china at the reception. More than likely, a bride’s grandparents will still have their set of wedding china and will graciously allow her to borrow it for her wedding day. This is a cute idea in particularly for a bride who is having a rustic themed wedding. The antique china will fit in perfectly with the rest of the décor.
When it comes to a bride borrowing something for her wedding day, the item does not necessarily have to be tangible. A great and easy way for a bride to incorporate something borrowed into the day is by having her first dance with her husband to a song that her parents did their first dance to. The song that the bride will borrow from her parents can even be incorporated into the wedding favors. The bride and groom can create a CD with songs played on their wedding day and hand it out to their guests.
Since we are on a roll with the vintage theme, why not have the bride include yet another item belonging to her parents or grandparents? Including a vintage cake topper is a fun and eye catching way for a bride to incorporate something borrowed into her wedding day. This item can even mix the something old (the cake topper) with the something new (the cake) to knock out two of the five good luck charms she will need on her wedding day.
Last but certainly not least, a bride can borrow an old photo of her parents on their wedding day to hold in a picture of her and her new husband. This is one of my favorite ideas because the bride can not only take pictures with the photo, but she can also set up a table with photos of her and the groom’s parents and grandparents on their wedding days. This will be something memorable not only for the couple, but for those who mean the most to them.
