You as the bride can always make use of certain elements from your mother’s bridal ensemble. For example, your mother’s embellished bridal dupatta. Isha Ambani paired her mother’s saree (panetar) as a dupatta with her Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla bridal lehenga.

If not a piece of jewellery, how about the jewellery chest? It is a great item to take along while starting out a new chapter in your life. You can always return the treasure chest if and when you invest in one of your own.
