I would like to set out handkerchiefs at the church for ‘happy tears’, but I am at a loss for where I would find a larger amount of them – say 100 – so that I can buy them at a bulk discount. I would love vintage looking ones, but plain white are fine as well. Anyone have any ideas of where I would find them?

@knig0085: It’s not bulk but you can buy nice white hankerchiefs at Walmart. I think it’s like 10 for $10.
Check the men’s accessory section at different stores.
It totally surprised me when FI showed me how many stores actually carry them.

I got some that I used as napkins on ebay from this seller. I found a bulk amount and kept bidding until they cost less then it would to rent napkins, including shipping. Just make sure you have a while for them to be shipped b/c they come from China.

I know you’re looking to give generic hankies (meaning not individually personalized) to your guests during ceremony, so maybe you’ll have better luck than I at getting the cost per item really low.
I bought vintage hand-embroidered monogrammed hankies in various patterns and colors from all different sellers on etsy.com for each of my 5 bridesmaids, my mom, his mom, plus my sister and his sister… and one for me too, I just couldn’t resist. They are BEAUTIFUL, but weren’t cheap. I think the one at lowest cost was $8, and for one hard to find letter I shelled out $25. The rest were anywhere in-between.
P.S. Marjorie is my mother’s name… I hit the jackpot when I found a whole set with her name and initial! And for only $10!

Go to an antique store. They usually have baskets full and sell them at bulk prices.

I have been looking at thrift stores and ebay. I have found some pretty good deals on ebay with bulk packages.
