I received one from my MIL. It was supposed to be my something old because her mom had given it to her. I pinned it under the skirt of my dress (her suggestion) so that it was with me while walking down the aisle. It felt a little silly but it made her extremely happy so I just went with it.

Will you be carrying any kind of purse? Is the handkerchief new?

@pinkkathryn:  I really want a vintage handkerchief as my “something blue.”  I figured it’d come in handy for happy tears.  I also have no idea where to put it…  I’m thinking maybe tucked into the handle of my bouquet, or my MOH could hold it for me.  Or maybe tucked into my dress?  Although that feels a little unclassy to pull a hanky out of my cleavage if I start crying, haha.

DH had mine in his pocket. At one point in the ceremony when I started to get emotional, I whispered “I need my hankie.” Great photo of him handing it to me… one of our friends said she almost started to bawl when she saw that! 🙂

Isn’t that what people with pockets are for? Holding your stuff? 😛
(it sounded adorable, by the way)

I have pockets in my dress, so I’l carrying my own handkerchief. If I didn’t I’d probably give it to my FH, as the cleavage area is too noticible for it to be hanging out there. 🙂

@rebwana:  Great idea!  Does it still count as one of your “somethings” if someone else is carrying it?

@kb7:  sure, why not! A lot of brides have blue in their bouquets, and the MOH holds it for most of the ceremony, anyway. 🙂

@pinkkathryn:  Good question..my something old is my great grandmothers old hankie that my mom always has with her…but I haven’t figured out what i’m gonna do with it.  I’m liking the idea of having the groom hold it though…that could work
