Hand Me a Hanky

I did something a little frivolous and trendy.

I bought 20 vintage handkerchiefs on Ebay.

See, a while back, I made a list of "wedding wants". But that list isn't all inclusive. With all the fabulous inspiration in the blogosphere, it's hard not to get wrapped up in all the tiny little details, and continually add to that list.

So what will I do with the vintage handkerchiefs?

They are for a "Tears of Joy" basket at the ceremony site. Guests can choose (and keep) a vintage handkerchief for the ceremony. Whether the ladies are feeling a little emotional (there had better be some tears during our vows!), feeling a cold coming on, or just want a hankie to match their dress, I'm hoping people will take one. I think they're adorable and sweet.

Now I'm just debating with myself if I should buy more. All the people I know who had them at their wedding say they were a huge hit, and the basket was empty before the ceremony even began.

Ok... I realize how stupid this all seems. Please don't judge me.

I think it's super cute! We have too big of a guest list to use hankies, so we're just going to spruce up some tissues.

I will use the one I have from my Greatgrandmother, Susan has a few also.

What a great idea! I think I'm going to make little tissue packs with labels, but I love that idea too!
