Does anyone use handkerchiefs anymore? Well, yes, my mother in law does and, thanks to her, so does my husband. It’s disgusting. It’s long been a bone of contention between us. In fact, let’s not discuss it anymore… I’ll tell you about this pretty personalised wedding handkerchief instead.
By sewiheard on Etsy, the mother of the groom version says:
“Your son is such a special man
And I know that it is true
He would not be the man I love
If it were not for you
So if upon our wedding day
You shed a happy tear
Just save it in this handkerchief
And know I hold you dear”
And the mother of the bride one? Something similar. Names and dates can be added and you can choose the colour of the thread too.
My mother in law would have LOVED one of these. But it’s too late now.
