You can also make something old, into something new to represent a new love, like a relatives dress made into a necklace or repurpose the fabric from the dress into a clutch or a shaw.

Something Borrowed

Something borrowed represents happiness, borrowed happiness from a loving friend or family member. When a family member or friend allows you to borrow something, it shows they trust and love you and wish the same for you and your spouse.
