Wearing something on your wedding day that belongs to your mother is special, but what's even more fitting is wearing something that she wore on her own wedding day.

That could be her embroidered lace handkerchief (ask your maid of honor to keep it handy in case there are any tears at the altar), pearl earrings or maybe even a scrap of her wedding gown sewn into the hem of your dress.

You'll be checking off something old and something borrowed from your list, and asking your mother to wear her bridal accessories will make her feel honored on your big day. She'll know you have a piece of her close to your heart!
