Vera Wang Spring 2011

Although I've had my dress for months, I still love to browse sites for wedding dresses. *sigh* Any bride would love to wear a Vera Wang.

something borrowed

Something old, something new, 
Something borrowed, something blue

"Something old" symbolizes continuity with the bride's family and the past. "Something new" means optimism and hope for the bride's new life ahead. "Something borrowed" is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family. "Something blue" blue has been connected to weddings for centuries.

Similarly, something borrowed is also the title of a novel by Emily Griffin and it was now a movie starring Jennifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson. Although I haven't read the book or watched the movie, I'm positive that it's a feel-good chick flick.

Anyway, my something borrowed are actually two jewelry items, the earrings and the bracelet that I'll wear. Mind you, I didn't borrow these items, they were offered to me! :) How lucky am I?

earrings from Ninang Bolin
The first one are earrings that will be lend to me by my Ninang/Tita Bolin. I've been asking my sister, Chai to check earrings at malls that I can use for the wedding. I'm not one for flashy, dangling earrings, really, a simple stud would do. When my Ninang learned this, she offered two pairs of earrings to me and took pictures of them, asking me to pick which one I liked better. I picked this one and I couldn't be happier.

bangle bracelet from Jo
The 2nd is a bangle bracelet! I love bracelets. I'm more of a bracelet person that a necklace one. I love statement bangles and cuffs. Jo is a friend here in Chicago that I met through a common friend. She also got married last October 2010. I saw her wedding photos and loved the bangle she was wearing! I asked her where she got it from, instead of answering my question me, she said "Ipapahiram ko na lang sayo, something borrowed mo na yun!" I'm truly blessed to have kind and generous friends!

Today is the 1st of May and I'm really happy that these details are finally off my long wedding detail list!
