7 Cute Wedding Handkerchiefs You Can’t Resist

Hi, loves! Emma here. And, I’ll be honest: normally, a handkerchief isn’t my favorite thing in the world. I’m more of a tissue kind of girl. Call me new-fashioned but I like to blow my nose and then, you know, THROW IT AWAY. But I do love when wedding handkerchiefs are used in creative ways at weddings: for tears of joy favors, wrapped around your bouquet as something blue, or as gifts for the wedding party. I even love handkerchiefs on shoes. So, I get it: there are going to be happy tears a-flowin’ on your big day and you might as well have hankies at the ready. That makes total sense.

So, when I saw this ‘Hurry Up and Be My Husband Already‘ handkerchief (shown below, #1) over at The Polka Dotted Bee, I just had to look further into her hankie collection. And I couldn’t resist all the lovely finds there were! So today we’re sharing seven of them and I have to admit — I’m slowly becoming more of a hankie girl because these are just too cute to resist. You can even have custom hankies made FROM YOUR HANDWRITING, which is pretty amazing.

Bottom line? Even if you’re not on board with the whole hankie thing, you’ll totally love these personalized wedding handkerchiefs. Promise. See them for yourself, below!

Creative Wedding Ideas Using… Thumbprints!

Happy Tuesday, loves! One of the reasons we love handmade weddings is because there is always something new and inspiring to love. Handmade also encompasses some of the most creative gift ideas we’ve ever seen! One of our favorite ideas is the use of thumbprints in your wedding decor. But how, you ask? We’ve seen thumbprints designed into a ‘heart’ shape and imprinted onto invitations, favors, jewelry, guest books, and wall art, among other finds; we’ve also seen fingerprints impressed into wedding rings with actual handwriting inside. These personalized finds are just one of the reasons why handmade weddings rule. And today we’re sharing some of our favorite thumbprint wedding finds to inspire yours!

But, we really want to know… which of these ideas is your favorite?

Thumbprint Wedding Ideas

To start, check out this wall art using your actual thumbprints. It’s cute, modern wall art — and can be signed by guests at your wedding as a guest book alternative.

Hi, loves + happy weekend! We received an email recently from a bride who was stuck when it came to what to give to her bridesmaids. She felt inundated with so many choices and ideas out there and she just wanted to find an easy bridesmaid gift she knew, for a fact, they would love. Our answer? A locket.
