Something Old....Something Borrowed

This week's Gallery theme is old.

When my Mother in law got married she spent £5 on her bridal veil........   Five WHOLE pounds.  Her Mum was not happy and thought it was far too much to spend on something she would just wear once.

It's a good job then that my sister in law borrowed it from her Mum for her own wedding

and then.....

I think it was money well spent, don't you?


  1. Awww I love this I just saw another post with the same item being passed down. I would say that it was a snip at just a£5!! How lovely I hope someone else will get to wear it one day in the future x x

  2. Thrifty AND sentimental - right up my alley!

  3. Original cost divided by number of wears = the bargain price of £1.67! Love that it was passed on and worn again!

  4. Oh wow, I love that you all wore it. Wish i'd kept mine now x

  5. That is so lovely that it has been passed on through the years, I really hope you get to pass it on as well! Lovely!

  6. I love that it was passed down. Truly something old and borrowed.

  7. I loved your veil anyway, but seeing the history is even more poignant.
