to incorporate “Something Old” into your Hawaii Wedding
1. Wear jewelry heirlooms (brooch, barrettes, hair pins, rings)
2. Use your mother’s wedding gown or veil.
3. Detach a button from your grandfather’s favorite jacket or a piece of lace from you mother’s bridal gown and sew it to the hem of your bridal gown.
4. Have your Hawaii groom wear your father’s cuff links.
5. Have your priest use your family prayer book if you’re having a church ceremony.
6. Reuse your old personal childhood pillow (or teddy!) as the ring bearer’s pillow.
7. Wear a locket necklace containing pictures of your parents and grandparents around your neck or pin a locket around your bouquet’s stems. This is also great for grandparents that have passed 🙂
8. Display a picture from your parents or grandparent’s wedding day at your reception. This would also be super cute in a vintage frame!
9. Have your wedding ceremony or reception at a historic Hawaii location. Think about the Iolani Palace or Bishop Museum.
