A few weeks ago, I shared my ideas for something old. Today, I’m giving you a few ways to incorporate something new into your wedding day. This quarter of the ages-old bridal tradition represents optimism for the future. Hopefully some of these tokens will bring you good luck in your new life together! Just about anything can serve as your something new (think of all of the purchases you make for your wedding day!), but these are a few of my favorites!
1.) Of course, the easiest and most practical something new is your wedding dress! And why shouldn’t it be? Allison’s was; check it out below! You’ll never want to take this once-in-a-lifetime gown off and highlighting it in this way makes it even more special.
2.) Maybe you’re wearing your mom’s gown or a vintage dress? In that case, let all of your accessories serve as your something new!
3.) Orrrrr it could be your new wedding ring! The best accessory of them all!
4.) Make memories of your wedding day last a really long time by splurging on a new perfume for when you say I do! Every time you wear it thereafter, you’ll think of that happy day 🙂
5.) If you and your fiance have recently purchased your first home together, incorporate a key to the new place into your bouquet ribbon. Thoughts of your new life together will be with you all day long.
6.) Speaking of your fiance, how about some cheeky new lingerie for the wedding night? I’ll leave that one up to your imagination.
7.) Nothing makes a girl happier like a new pair of shoes, am I right? Treat yourself to those designer heels you’ve always wanted, like these Badgley Mischka beauties Kelly wore down the aisle when she and Nate exchanged vows.
8.) Toast to being Mr. and Mrs. with some new crystal champagne flutes to use at your reception (and every anniversary celebration afterwards!).
9.) Wear a penny from the year you’re getting hitched in your shoe. That’s double good luck!
10.) What makes a better something new than a new last name? Sport your new moniker on your getting-ready robe, like the one Nicolet wore when she married Greg, or your dress hanger, like the one holding Lauren’s Monique Lhuillier!
Will you have Something New? What will it be? Share your ideas and others ideas below, and keep your eyes peeled for more borrowed and blue ideas coming soon!

I counted my dress as ‘something new’ like most do. Sometimes the ‘old, new, borrowed, blue’ are overlooked with all of the other details that I bride has to worry about on that day.
You’re right; it does get overlooked sometime. But I love when a bride chooses something thoughtful for each of these! Your dress is a perfect something new!
