Wedding handkerchiefs for brides are a traditional item to carry on their wedding day, to mop up her happy tears or tears of joy. Originally, they would have been hand embroidered with a brides initials and wedding date. They often became family heirlooms, and past down from Mother to Daughter. This meant that a brides heirloom wedding hankie could be used as her something old.
