some weddings use them as napkins with a tag to indicate that they are a favor

 

hang them on  a line like a banner using those cute little clothespins-again you would need a sign letting guests know they are to take one

 if you decide to fold them this is a pretty fold

or roll and display

Poem:

Tears of Joy

 

 Knowing that you are here today, knowing that you care,

Makes our wedding day memories a special time to share.

This hankie is a gift, expressing our thanks that you are here.

 To use as we unite our love, to catch a joyful tear.

As we walk down life’s path, we’ll think back and say,

 How much it meant that you were there on our wedding day.

OH MY GOSH YOUR WEDDING IS IN A FEW DAYS AND YOU JUST WROTE THIS!!  YIKES.

Best wishes.

If youhave time, I’d go to the arts and crafts or cooking section of a discount store or chain store and get those silver wedding bands meant for cake decorating.  You could slip the hankie ponted through that.  If time is of the essence, just leave the squares nicely arranged on a platter or in a basket.   I thinkyou read that here as when I read the post she used a silver platter in an outdoor wedding. 

Show us what you did!!
