I recently found the veil my mom wore when she married my dad. It's really pretty and I would love to wear it, except for one problem. My parents divorced after 25 years of marriage and it was a nasty divorce. She was a bad girl and my dad divorced her.
The reason brides wear something old is so the happiness from the old item carries over to the new bride's life. I don't know if I should wear my mom's veil given the marriage they had, especially the last 15 years of it.
