Something Old For Your Rustic Wedding

Just about every bride is familiar with the common wedding day tradition of “Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” It comes from an old English rhyme and using those tokens on your wedding day is said to bring an extra bit of luck to the bride and her partner.We wanted to take a look at some new ways to weave this sweet tradition into your wedding day style. First up, something old. We love the idea of using vintage pieces costume jewelry in clever, unique ways as your “Something Old.” Take a look at this gorgeous, sparkling bouquet made entirely of antique costume jewelry like brooches, earrings and pendants from Carmen West Creative. We especially love the subtle touch of burlap at the base of the bouquet to balance out all that the glitz and shine.


If your heart is set on using a traditional floral bouquet, take a look at these other vintage “Something Old” options, also available from Amore Treasure.


Bracelets weaving together unique vintage pieces are a great way to accent your look and really express your personal style. This one is actually made from vintage earrings.


These bracelets, which can also be extended to make necklaces, are fantastic one-of-a-kind touches to complete your look and can be customized to coordinate with your color scheme.

Check out our Something New post from last week.
