Why Does the Bride carry a Handkerchief? Not all brides' head down the aisle with one, but if you choose to, it is considered to be a good omen. Early farmers thought a bride's wedding-day tears were lucky and brought rain for their crops. Later, it was believed that a bride who cried at her wedding would never shed another tear about her marriage. Today, handkerchiefs make great keepsake gifts, and it's great for all occasions.
Handkerchiefs are always a welcome gift for weddings. Consider personalizing with embroidered names, date or monogram as an added touch. Your thoughtfulness will be remembered always!
