My wedding gown was simple. There wasn’t any lace, beading, or bling, but the silk taffeta had a slight shimmer to it when I swayed in the light. Once alterations were made and the bow was put in place I noticed it needed a little something extra to complete the whole look. And that’s where my Nana comes in.
My Nana (paternal grandma) passed away several years ago, but I remember she used to be one of those women who wore brooches. I made a call to one of my aunts to see if she had any of my Nana’s brooches and low and behold, she presented me with two of them. They were both gorgeous, but one stood out above the other and on my wedding day it served as my “something blue”:

I loved having my Nana part of my special day!
