I would love it and think it was sweet and appreciate the time you put into it.  And, I’d bring it.  I can’t speak for “most people,” I think those who you are close to would think it’s great.  I love the idea, and you don’t see it much anymore.  My Gram (Dad’s mom) was an amazing seamstress, and he still carries a handcrafted and monogrammed handkercheif she made for him.  He has nicer ones from her for when he wears a suit (he’s an attorney.)  As far as the saying, maybe something like this: 

“Feel free to treasure for those happy wedding tears… in loving honor of my father.”

it really depends on the ppl.. many may have good intentions to bring it n jus 4get about it closer to the day.. i kno this isnt wat u planned but if its a real important to u for them to have the hankie at the wedding then maybe u should consider giving it out at the wedding instead

I wouldn’t think it was strange – but I would definitely not bring it. I just don’t remember things like that.  Since it’s fabric, it would probably go into my rag drawer where I put all left over fabric scraps so I don’t have to use paper towels. 

So if you had someone like me as a guest, would it offend you to know that’s what’s happening with your handkerchiefs?  If so, just put them out at the ceremony so those who want can take.  If you think most recipients would appreciate, use, love and you aren’t going to be upset if some don’t – then go for it.

i would think that it was a beautiful way to make your invitation special. i doubt i would think to bring it to the wedding though. as for what i would do with it. probably keep it with the invitation in my keepsake box that holds all of the wedding invites and stuff i save.
