Something old is symbolic continuity of the bride's family. It is meant to represent the bride's past as she embarks on her new future. The item can come from the parents or grandparents from either the bride or the groom's side. Other family members and friends might have an something old item for the bride as well. If the old item is also borrowed for the occasion, it can serve a dual purpose as her something old and borrowed.
