Something Old…
White gold 24k diamond incrusted tennis bracelet
Once wore by my great grandmother
A gift given to her by her husband’s mother
Passed down to her daughter; my grandmother
Now in the hands of my mother
Only worn on special occasions
Soon to be given to me on my special day
All the responsibilities of having to hold on to this precious tradition
One day to be handed down to my first daughter

Something New…
My two piece Vera Wang dress
Paid for by my godmother as a wedding gift
A lace bodice and tied up the back
A chiffon ball gown skirt, layers of tulle underneath
The ivory white dress symbolizes my purity through life
And the tiara and veil
Crystal on the tiara that sparkles in the light
Then having the veil lifted at the ended of the aisle

Something Borrowed…
The Louis Vuitton silver stiletto
From Auntie Astrid
Free to borrow
Priceless to own
But memories made with every step
Almost ready to make everything official
Like their red soles

Something Blue…
Blue roses with white rims
And white roses with blue rims
Half represent his family
Half represent my family
Symbolizing the coming together as one
All the bouquets wrapped in white satin,

Ending old traditions…
Start of something new…
All things borrowed and shared…
And something blue…
