Something borrowed, something blue. On my wedding I did not want to use something blue lest this would ruin my wedding motif. Finally. I decided to just have the blue inconspicuous. I requested my modiste to just make my garter blue and she made it really nice. Oh, I missed that garter. I should have asked it back from the guy who caught it for souvenir.

I carried a white and blue embroidered handkerchief my mom used on her wedding day. It was wrapped around my bouquet and knocked out my "something old," "something borrowed," and "something blue" all in one shot!
