I have heard of brides borrowing a penny (to put in their shoe) then returning it to their friend later. I am borrowing my grandmother’s pearl necklace.

I am borrowing a tie clip from my father, and I will put it on the wrapped part of my bouquet.

I borrowed my husband’s grandma’s cake cutting knife she used at her wedding.  It was perfect for us!  My mom bought a hankerchief to wrap around my flowers which I would have to give back so it was borrowed… but I never used it because I don’t think something borrowed works like that. Hankerchiefs are something great to borrow.  Also if you have a pendant that is special to your family but doesn’t go with your wedding day look you could incorporate that into your flowers.

Do these have to be something that you’re wearing?

Right now, I’ve borrowed a basket from an aunt that I’ll use for my cards. Does that count?

my mom has a great diamond bracelet that has been my cousin and my best friend’s something borrowed (my best friend calls her mom, too). i’m sure it will be mine as well.

I had the same issue as you – I bought or had everything I was going to wear! I was talking to my SMIL and she suggested I talk to my SIL who got married one year before and borrow a handkerchief from her, so I contacted her and asked. Then, my SMIL realized she had some of her mother’s hankies, so I ended up borrowing two from her and one from my SIL. Maybe something like that would work for you?

AllyCRN:  aren’t you supposed to borrow from someone who’s happily married? I would go for a carm on my bouquet like some pendant or some other costume jewelry piece… Im picky too.

AllyCRN:  My mom is lending me a pin that was her mothers.  I will be pinning it to my bouquet.  It’s also old… so just in case I don’t find something, I guess it can serve 2 functions… is that allowed? lol

Mine is my Maid of Honor/Best Friend’s mother’s veil. She passed away last week, and we are so humbled that she shared this gift with us.
