Trends I’m totally into: Vintage Hankerchiefs

So one of the wedding trends I have totally got on board with is vintage handkerchiefs.  Purchasing them from ebay has been one of my first major investments into my wedding look (and by major investments I mean I spent about $30 on a slew of handkerchiefs, hey I never said I was made of money).

There are so many things you can do with them.

I mean, how cute is this picture:

You can make cute thank you gifts for your bridesmaids:


You can make amazing bunting:

You can even use them for save the dates and invitations:

I think I will probably go the more traditional route though and just leave them for “tears of joy.”  Now I just have to figure out how I want to package them.

I’ll be keeping my eye out for more ideas, but for now I am quite happy with my wedding purchase and I think they will be so lovely on display and as a favor for the guests at our wedding (though I am imagining it will probably be more of the female guests who will apreciate it).  And if I have some left over, I could always turn them into a quilt (or maybe just a pillow- not sure how ambitious I will be)


Are you using any vintage handkerchiefs in your wedding?  Any thoughts on how I should display these?
