I have to admit, I didn’t really put that much effort into making sure that I had the “somethings” for my bridal outfit. It wasn’t something I was particularly concerned with, and considering all of the other stuff I had to do, it ended up falling pretty low on the priority list.
However, on the day of the wedding I was surprised to find that I really did have all of the somethings!
My cardigan that I wore for part of our formal portraits. Believe it or not, I’ve had this cardigan for quite a while now ”“ Sister Cardy gave it to me for Christmas one year and it’s a total coincidence that it matches my Weddingbee icon perfectly!
Both pairs of my never-been-worn shoes. The Chucks were really new as I had just been given them that morning by Mr. Cardigan! Also in the “new” category was my dress, obviously.
Both the bracelet and headband were borrowed from fellow bees! The headband was from Mrs. Cola (and was made by Mrs. Star!) and the bracelet was from Mrs. Frozen Yogurt (and has also been in another bee wedding)! I loved having little pieces of my fellow bees with me on my wedding day—it was very special to me!
Also borrowed were the earrings I wore—they were Sister Cardy’s and I decided to borrow them about two days before the wedding!
I don’t actually have any good photos of the garter that I wore, but it was technically old (older than my cardigan, if that wasn’t old enough for you!), borrowed (from MIL Cardigan), and blue! I didn’t do a garter toss, but this was the garter that MIL Cardy wore in her wedding and she asked if I’d be interested in wearing it anyways. Of course, I said yes!
And, I even managed to cover the lesser-known part of the rhyme: a silver sixpence in my shoe.
Did you/do you plan to have all of the “somethings” in your bridal outfit?
