3 Traditional Ideas for Your Wedding’s “Something Old”

We’ve all heard the old adage — if you’re planning a wedding, you need to incorporate “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” If you’re at a loss for what to incorporate for your “something old,” try using one or more of our fun ideas that pay homage to family and tradition.

  • A passed-down family recipe. Does your mom make chocolate chip cookies to die for? Does your grandmother protect her family lasagna recipe with a locked safe? If your family has a passed-down recipe, consider asking your reception venue or bridal shower banquet hall in Bucks County if they can incorporate the classic dish onto your menu!
  • A piece of heirloom jewelry. If you’re going to be a bride, ask your mother, aunt, or grandmother if she has a string of pearls, choker necklace, or tennis bracelet that works with your outfit. If you’re a groom, you may want to ask a father or grandfather to borrow his best set of cufflinks.

Do you want to pay homage to a classic piece of jewelry that’s no longer wearable or that broke? A tailor can incorporate loose precious stones and pearls into your dress or veil, offering a new and fashionable way to don your classic jewels!

  • A photograph of a loved one who has passed on. Do you have someone special in your life who can’t make it to your big day? Displaying a photo of a loved one who has passed on in your wedding hall in Bensalem can help you and your party feel their spirit during your ceremony and reception!
