Why did we ever stop using handkerchiefs?Posted: May 1, 2011
“where a blood relation sobs, an intimate friend should choke up, a distance acquaintance should sigh, a [friend] should merely fumble sympathetically with his handkerchief.” – Mark Twain
I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing like a good wedding to make my eyes well up and my heart swoon. There’s just something so idyllic about weddings that makes me love them so much.Without fail, I will cry every time the father hands his daughter off, and I have no doubt I will do the same at my own wedding. It’s that bittersweet moment where the dad is saying goodbye to his little daughter, and their relationship will be forever different after that point. Not necessarily bad, but just different. I am such a daddy’s girl, can’t you tell? The other part that makes me cry is when the bride and groom first make eye contact while she is walking down the isle. There is something so perfect about that moment.
Because of the swell of emotions at weddings and the heavy amounts of makeup that women usually wear, there is one thing that all us women need…a good classy handkerchief! Handkerchiefs have all but gone out of style and have replaced by the small packs of Kleenex tissues. But wouldn’t it be fun to be able to dab your non-waterproof mascara in class?
I saw this really cute idea on a wedding photographers website that I loved and from the second I saw it, I knew I had to do it.
