Check List: Something Old...

So while shopping around for my upcoming wedding (which I am getting so unbelievably excited for!!), I happened upon this dainty little vintage shop on Etsy called emmjeyessvintage that specializes in vintage jewelery and hair accessories. Not only is Vintage jewelery earth friendly, it also fits the requirements of the "something old" category. And if you happen across a stunner, like this opal with cerulean blue rhinestones cocktail ring, you can check both boxes in the "something old" and "something blue" categories.

Now before you run out to your favorite vintage shop, make sure you check in with mom and grandma first. Chances are they may have something that you"ll absolutely love that they've been waiting to pass down to you. What better way to celebrate the "something old" category than to wear a bracelet that your grandma wore in her wedding, or maybe the hair comb that your mom used to pin in her veil.

I think that this might be one of my favorite traditions as far as Weddings go as it stems from sentiment rather luxury. Even the "new" category can be something that was given to you by a friend or loved one. You don't have to use it as an excuse to go out an buy brand new Tiffany earrings, unless your really want to, and then it's totally acceptable :)
