How "Something Borrowed" works & Its purpose

This group was created by me, for the Sisters of PW. It was a random idea that has turned into something amazing! A place to come together and share with one another as our big day's come and go. You have the option of either requesting a particular item you'd like to borrow, or post as accepting an item that a fellow PWer has offered.


Create a new post only IF:


a) You are posting a new item to offer (post should be prefixed with WTL: - willing to lend)


b) You want to request something that you dont currently see being offered (post should be prefixed with LTB: - looking to borrow)


Please note the following:


1. If you are posting an item, please be open to the idea of having it passed down from one bride to the next, before it is returned to you. It is ultimately your decision on who is able to borrow and for how long it will stay in rotation, but I do ask that you be fair.


2. Its on a first come, first serve basis as far as wedding dates go. If two women want the same item and they share a wedding date, whichever bride has made the request first is given first priority. *the second bride is more than welcome to make a LTB post*


3. Cherish these items as if they are your own! Anyone who is willing to put an item out there, is doing so out of the kindness of their hearts, and is trusting you to treat their items with respect. Please do so.


4. After your wedding day, it is then up to you to get in contact with the next recipient (request her address information) and ship the items off as soon possible. SHIPPING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY! A BORROWER SHOULD ONLY PAY SHIPPING COST, WHEN SHIPPING THE ITEM TO THE NEXT BORROWER NOT TO RECEIVE IT. (UNLESS you have mutually agreed otherwise & that will be handled privately between the parties involved). We all know time waits for no one, so please be sure that the next bride is guaranteed the item in time for her day. **If you can not commit to this, please do not request the item.


5. If there is any confusion on who gets what and when, please contact the group leaders:



  • PinkSanity

  • MissHammy

  • ChanceAre

  • LauraSweet


REMEMBER ABOVE ALL -- We want to keep this as fun and friendly as possible.


6. Enjoy!


****PS. Its also good to keep an updated running list of borrowers on your item.


for example:


Borrowing



  • Pinksanity 01/01/1901

  • MissHammy 02/03/1901

  • ChancesAre 05/01/1901

  • LauraSweet 12/12/1901


Pictures are encouraged!! please take a snapshot of yourself with the borrowed item if possible and remember to post them here: http://www.projectwedding.com/post/list/where-are-they-now-pictures


NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SELL ITEMS!!! THIS GROUP IS FOR BORROWING ONLY! please post under classifieds (http://www.projectwedding.com/classifieds) if you would like to sell your items. Thnx!

Most definitely, Jo!  Be sure to put the item name IN the topic section so brides can see it clearly!


Maybe for MRS. that have things to lend can put "Lending: Such and Such"


and Brides that WANT to borrow something can put "Borrowing: Such and Such" or "Looking For" or "Looking to Borrow (LTB for short?)"


Or SOMETHING along those lines :)

I love this idea. I cant wait for my wedding to come so I can have something to lend out. I think with all the expenses that go into a wedding this group will help us brides out tremendously.

Too funny that this group was just formed. I am now "borrowing" a bracelet from sh211 because I was still needing a "something borrowed". This is such a great idea for everyone.

I absolutely ADORE this group! My wedding isn't for another 512 days, but I'd totally be willing to let people borrow things from me after!

i LOVE this group soooo much! I am so excited, however I do have one question. If a bride has more than one thing that she is needing for her wedding, is it ok to borrow more than one thing from different MRS. or should we keep it to a limit of only one per bride to be?!

No ladies...each of you are fine! you can borrow more than one item at a time, so long as you are able to keep up with them, and dont mind paying the shipping cost for each. & hmdalessio79 so long as someone is willing to lend it, ask away... nothing rude about it at all. Goodluck!

This group is making me feel all warm and gooey inside. I'm so happy no one is around to witness this "awww...PW is so awesome it makes me misty eyed" look on my face :)
