Does your family have any special items that have been passed down through the generations? These are perfect for a something-old piece!

Whether it's a vintage brooch, hairpiece or piece of jewelry, there are dozens of ways to style the accessory. Pin your grandmother's diamond brooch to your bouquet wrap, or affix it to your updo so you'll have a little sparkle in your hair after the veil comes off.

Look past the family jewels for even more ideas. Adorn the guest book table with your great aunt's crystal vase and your great-grandmother's tablecloth. A bride we know paid a sweet tribute to her parents by using their wedding cake topper!

Still coming up empty-handed? Ask your family members what treasures mean the most to them, and you'll find a way to use the most special ones on your most special day.
