I am following the tradition too!
I just always thought it was part of being a bride lol :lol:

Old = I have had my family heirloom diamonds made into my wedding earrings
New = Everything else I'll be wearing!! LOL - I don't know what to call my official "New" :P
Borrowed = I have been told this will be given to me on the day...... I am very curious........
Blue = I am having a baby blue underskirt on my dress. I am so excited to take pictures with it, I think it's goin gto look awesome.

I like to be a little different and always wanted to have the old, new, borrowed, blue just have them something other than the usual but cant come up with anything.
At the moment it is
Old - engagement ring (didnt think of this til I read this thread and it will be almost 3yrs old by the time the wedding comes), and stretch diamante bracelet (FH bought it for me around the time of our 10yr anniversary and since then it is my favourite bling bling jewelry)
New - dress, veil, tiara, shoes, necklace, earrings
Borrowed - ??? I guess I will have to speak to mum, FMIL and BW (best woman who is happily married)
Blue - it was going to be (and sort of still will be) garter and undies but I was reminded seeing the blue butterfly in this thread that my official 'blue' will be the tropical blue ulysses butterfly that we release at the ceremony when we are announced husband and wife.

Something old: My garter was made out of pieces of my Nana's veil, and pieces of material from all of my Mum and her sister's wedding dresses. I also put pieces of my Nana's veil into my fascinator.
Something new: My dress, wedder, knickers, etc.
Something borrowed: A special hanky that my Great-grandmother made my Aunt for her wedding day, only special people can use it as it has a 'J' embroidered into the corner.
Something blue: My shoes, flowers and beads in my hair piece.
