To Have & To Borrow
was founded where spectacular craftsmanship & sensible bridal shopping intertwine.

The Question: What is it that stirs the soul of a modern bride?

The Answer: It is all in the details.

There is something sweetly magical about those little pieces adorning the gown: the elegant headpieces, the shimmering sashes, and the flowing veil. These bridal accessories are the effortless finishes to the perfect wedding gown.

Here lies the problem: To find the perfect details - handmade, luxury, quality - a bride had only two options. The first: to spend a fortune on the finest of pieces. The second: to settle for second-rate sparkle and lackluster design. A splurge or a loss.


Enter, our solution: To Have & To Borrow


We’re bringing couture,
artisan details to every bride.


An individual that works with their hands to create decorative items using traditional techniques.

Artisans are masters of their craft.


Our artisan outlining a detailed design sketch which will then be traced on to tulle to be hand beaded.

Our India-based artisans pour honor, beauty, and precision into each piece they make.


Using hand beading techniques tracing back through hundreds of years, they meticulously weave in authentic Swarovski crystals, intricate embroidery, and dainty hand-cut appliques to the highest-quality tulle and ribbon. From fashion forward belts to classic cathedral veils and everywhere in between, To Have & To Borrow brings luxury elegance and high-end appeal.

Each piece you order from To Have & To Borrow is made-to-order for you.

Whether you choose to rent or buy, you will ALWAYS be the first to wear your piece. The accessory you receive is hand-beaded, cut, and crafted for your wear alone. After your rental we recycle the components of your accessory. We are the first rentable bridal couture.

In purchased pieces, we take couture a step further. Customization of beading, embroidery, Swarovski crystal work, and more is available via our stylists.
