We all know the rhyme, “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” Ledged has it, that if the bride wears items that represent those descriptions, it will bring her luck in her marriage. Brides today, do it less for that belief and more of a fun tradition. A lot of mothers and grandmothers donate their old gems, broaches, gloves or pearls for this portion of the tradition. We have been lucky enough here at the CCB, to have witnessed some amazing, thoughtful and fun something old items at the weddings over the years.  When you start planning your wedding, think about these unique ways to add something old into your ceremony and reception!


Wedding Cake Toppers

A perfect way to add something old into your wedding day, top your cake off with a vintage cake topper!


Wedding Dress Details

Here is a charming way to add a family heirloom into your gown, sew in a pearls or decoration from an aunt or speical family member from their gown they wore.



Add a vintage lace handkerchief around your bridal bouquet. You can always add a family ring around the bouquet as well. 



Your something old doesn’t have to be small, if you have a vintage car in the family, use it as your getaway car!  



A touch of sparkle from a family member will be a perfect addition to your speical day!

“The reception could not have been more perfect! All of our ideas had come to life! The decoration displays were perfectly executed, the staff were incredibly attentive and professional, and the food was amazing! Our guests raved about the service, the food, the bar and the venue space. We could not be more thrilled! I cannot express how much we really loved our experience with the CCB! They were so wonderful to work with and made planning so easy for us as far as the venue. Stacy and Jill made us feel so comfortable from the moment we first visited the CCB to our last dance of our special day. Everyone there is amazing!!!

Feeling stresses about wedding gown shopping? Don’t fret, it is completely normal to feel overwhelmed at first when starting your search. With us located on the South Shore we have seen bridal gowns from all over! Luckily we have an abundant array of Bridal Shops in our great state of Massachusetts! We just love seeing all the beautiful gowns that come through our doors here at the Canoe Club Ballroom! From sparkles to lace, ball gowns to mermaid, we just love them all! We have gathered up a few ways to keep stress away when you start your search for the perfect bridal gown!


Set a Budget

Don’t forget to set a cutoff point when trying on bridal gowns. Plan to spend 10% of your overall budget on your wedding gown.


Start Early

It takes about 6-12 months from the moment you start your search. It takes 4-6 months for the gown to be made.


Do Your Research

Before you try to anything on, think about what you want your “look” to be.


Make an appointment

Once you have an idea of what you want, call ahead and check to see if the shop has the designers you are looking for.


Limit your entourage

Bring only the people you trust to your bridal appointment, having too many people might make you lose focus on what you really want to try on.


Comfort Zone

Try a few different styles on that might be out of your comfort zone. You may find your dream dress in a style that you never thought you might like!



Forget about size when ordering your gown. No two designers size charts are created equal! Remember it’s easier to take a size in then to let out!


Saying Yes

Don’t worry about saying yes to your dream dress right away. Sometimes trying on dozens of dresses confuses you more than helping!
