"Someting Old" ideas

Incorporating "something old" from the famous Something Old, Something New tradition isn't as hard as all that. Here are a few of my favorite ways to bring a little bit of old world charm to your wedding day:

1. Attach a locket to your bouquet. This locket can contain a picture of your husband-to-be as a child, or a picture of a family member such as your mother or grandparents. This is a fairly popular idea right now, and I think its a great way to bring something old into your wedding celebration.
2. Use the diamond from a great grandma or great aunt's engagement ring in your own ring. I love this idea because the "something old" then stays with you all the time....well, as long as you wear the ring at least! I think its a very special way to incorporate something old, not to mention eco-friendly as well! In my engagement ring, my main diamond is from my great aunt's engagement ring. I love it because I can look at it and think of her.
3. Wear a piece of jewelry that's been in your family for a while. It can be a small bracelet, a pair of earrings, or a dainty ring you can wear on your right hand. Wearing something that has meaning to you always adds a special spirit to your day.
