Wondering where to buy wedding handkerchiefs? You’ll find it here! Make sure you follow us on Pinterest for other fun wedding finds.
Hi, loves! Emma here. Question: are you a fan of handkerchiefs? A bridal handkerchief is usually one of those wedding day accessories you either a) need to have, as you’ll be Mrs. Waterworks all night (like me), b) want to have, as a keepsake item, or c) neither, as you didn’t really know it was a thing until we brought it up. If you’re part of the first two groups, you’re in the majority, as wedding handkerchiefs are a pretty popular item among brides — probably about as necessary as (an awesome) waterproof mascara on your big day. Tears of joy are likely going to fall on your wedding day and a handkerchief is so much prettier to have close at hand than nudging your Maid of Honor to pass over a kleenex or stashing some tissues in your own clutch purse. If you had no idea wedding handkerchiefs were even a thing to add to the list, go ahead and get it on there now! We’ll show you some examples of beautiful and affordable wedding handkerchiefs, share tips on where to store yours for the big day, and even show you where to buy wedding handkerchiefs so you can cross this off your list right now. How’s that for kicking off your weekend? Read on to find out more…
How to Carry / Store Wedding Handkerchiefs
Wedding handkerchiefs can be carried by the bride in two ways. First and foremost, it can be incorporated into the bouquet. Either the bride can have it wrapped around the handle of her bouquet so it is still accessible and directly in her hand. On the other hand, it can be wrapped around your Maid of Honor’s bouquet so she has it in hand to pass to you, if needed. Another place to keep your handkerchief is in your pocket, if you are lucky enough to have found a gown with pockets (which is always a plus). Or have your groom keep it in his pocket, so he can hand it to you if you need it. Or if he needs it. Hey, you never know! Alternatively, you can place it in your wedding clutch.
What Kind of Wedding Handkerchiefs to Buy
For the bride, you will want to buy wedding handkerchiefs that have a traditional “bridal” look to them, often with lace and in white or ivory to match your dress. Your handkerchief can be as simple or as elegant as you’d like. Etsy shop Aristocrafts features a variety of handkerchiefs we love, from a simple classic bridal hankie to a more elaborate vintage inspired style — like this one:
You may also want to consider a handkerchief with your initial embroidered onto it, your new monogram, or the wedding date, as wedding handkerchiefs are commonly kept as a wedding keepsake. Someday, you may even want to pass it on to a bride (a future daughter, daughter-in-law, niece, or friend, for instance) as her “something old” or “something borrowed”, and it is nice to have a personalized touch to it.
You could even cross off your own “something blue” by choosing a wedding handkerchief with a bit of blue, like this one:
Wedding handkerchiefs also make a great gift for moms and grandmothers. The mother of the bride and mother of the groom would love to receive an embroidered handkerchief as a keepsake from their son’s or daughter’s wedding.
