Personalized Wedding Gifts

Personalized, monogrammed items make great gifts to anyone in the wedding party.

I’ve monogrammed handkerchiefs, pillows and table linens for the bride and groom for many, many customers. Handkerchiefs are the number one sellers! Customers request the handkerchiefs have the bride and grooms monogram on one side with their names and the wedding date on the opposite corner. The wedding date commemorates their special day beautifully. Their names are usually in the “Julie & Justin” format with the date embroidered just under their names. The date is usually in the “October 25, 2009” format. Choose white thread on a white handkerchief or ivory thread on an ivory handkerchief for the lady’s and white on white for the man’s to give the gift a classic look. Otherwise, choose a color that coordinates with the bride’s wedding colors.

Many brides and grooms have chosen the monogrammed handkerchiefs as gifts to their wedding party. Bride’s maids and groomsmen love the personalized touch as well as having something that they can keep and use. These handkerchiefs are durable! Monogram the handkerchief with a full monogram or just the last name initial.

Families of the bride and groom find these handkerchiefs very special! The mother and father of the bride and groom or the grand parents, either way it gives them an extra special way to have a wonderful keepsake of the wedding. One example would be to give them a handkerchief with the bride and groom’s monogram on it with the date on the opposite corner. Another way would be to have their very own monogram on the handkerchief with the bride and groom’s name and date on the opposite corner.

There are many personalized gifts for weddings, handkerchiefs are a classic that can be personalized to each person receiving it. I love them!

Do you have a favorite? I would love to hear from you!

Sincerely, Steph
