Both of our parents still happily married, so I wanted to incorporate something from each of their weddings. We are using my FI’s parents champagne glasses from their original wedding. We are also using my parents cake knife from their wedding.

i used part of my mom’s dress to wrap my bouquet in. and my mil gave me a family bible that everyone in their family carries down the aisle and signs, starting from 1946. my grandma gave me jewelry that my grandpa gave her for their anniversary.

our wedding had a vintage feel and had a lot of family history (our table numbers were old family wedding photos, our chuppah was made from a tallit from both of our grandpa’s, etc.), so i loved having different things from our families. plus it does save a lot of money!

I was the opposite of you.  I didn’t have anything passed down from anyone.  I think it would be nice to be able to say “That’s Aunt SonSo’s veil” or “The cake topper was my mother’s.”  I’m really sentimental though, so I might be biased!
