I decided early on I wanted to do the “somethings.” You know the saying, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (and a sixpence in the shoe).” I like traditional things like that, and it seemed simple and a fun way to add to my bridal look. I also decided early on that I was going to include other people in gathering my somethings.
When I started thinking about who I wanted to help me, I realized that I was set up for a perfect group of women to assist me in them, and knew all four of them would love to help me out. I contacted three of the four right away to ask if they would help, and all three jumped at the chance. The fourth I had already gotten something from her, so I knew it would be included in my look from the beginning.
The only parameters I gave the people helping me do my somethings were that it couldn’t be a ring or a necklace, and that it could be something to tie on my bouquet, something to sew into my dress, or something for me to wear like jewelry.
