I was recently on the hunt for inexpensive hankies because FH needed one for his Kentucky Derby seersucker. The ones we found in stores like Brooks Brothers were a little too expensive, so I visited my favorite Nashville thrift store for new (yes, nobody wants a used one) hankies, and they were suprisingly easy to find and cheap (a pack of 3 was under $10). Now I’m seriously considering buying some for wedding favors!
I found a few websites that offer personalized or vintage/unique handkerchiefs. I think it would be great to (subtly) embroider them with the date of your wedding opposed to using initials so your guests would be more likely to use them again. A less expensive option would be to buy the hankies in bulk, then buy iron-ons that you can use to personalize yourself!
The fashion section on Ebay.com has a ton of vintage hankies.
Some of the more expensive, antique ones would also make great bridesmaids’ gifts.
Speaking of hanky, I’d like to open a store called Hanky Panky that only sold handkerchiefs. Oh wait, isn’t that a line of underwear? Darnit.
