A Wedding Handkerchief can be embroidered with a variety of sentiments. The message will depend on who is carrying the handkerchief. At our shop, wedding handkerchiefs can be embroidered with a variety of messages for the bride, groom, maid of honor or mothers. Personalized handkerchiefs can be embroidered with the names of the bride and the groom and a romantic message may be included under the names. Some phrases to use in your embroidered wedding handkerchief include forever, always or till death do us part.
Wedding handkerchiefs typically become family heirlooms. Beautifully embroidered handkerchiefs can be used by the daughters and granddaughters of the bride. Some women like to use an existing heirloom hanky on their wedding day. Other women prefer to start a new heirloom to pass onto their children. Ask your mother and grandmother if they have one you can borrow. This would take care of two other traditions, something old and something borrowed.
