@alyssa247:  IMO, you’re being unnecessarily technical about it. I am using my grandmother’s brooch and I can’t return it to her, either. To me, I don’t look at these things too closely and i don’t feel like the true owner of the brooch because it was my grandmother’s for so long that I will always consier it to be her’s even though she’s no longer with us. But, if you’re that concerned… who inherited the veil? If it was someone other than you (like your mom/dad or something), then it’s technically borrowed from that other person.

@alyssa247:  I think it counts as something borrowed. I think you’re being too literal about this. Lots of people wear inherited things as their ‘something borrowed’.

Absolutely and i think it’s so sweet your family has a tradition like that. We’re not close with any of our extended family so i’m hoping to start traditions like that with our wedding.

Hopefully you can pass it on to the next generation, making it borrowed in a sense – you are onky holding it temporarily until it passes to its next owner
