I love these embroidered handkerchiefs as gifts for the moms but it seems like all the ones that I’ve seen are either from the bride to her mom and then from the bride to MIL OR from the groom to his mom. So individual gifts rather than together gifts and all the verses reflect this (ie. Today a bride, tomorrow a wife, always your daughter. Or, Thank you for raising the man of my dreams, etx).
We like the idea of them being from both of us to each mom, but I can’t find any handkerchiefs online with wording to reflect this.
Did anyone do this from both the bride and groom to each of the mothers? And/or possibly have any good wording ideas that would work as a gift from both?

How bought these???
If joyful tears begin to fall, wipe them away and instead recall the love and laughter we share together and how much you mean to us forever?
For your tears of joy
on our wedding day, We are so blessed
to have you share our special day

Dang it! The boy wasn’t crazy about the “tears” ideas. 🙁
Any other suggestions? I SO suck at this. I’d love a sweet but not TOO sappy something we can give to the moms from both of us.

I went on etsy to get different ideas for quotes…because i’m not creative enough to think of them on my own and I needed 4, one for my bio dad, my dad, my mom and my FMIL.

Does this sound totally lame? It’s really hard to walk the sentimental but not TOO sentimental line *and* be from both?
A mother holds her children’s hands for a little while,
but holds their hearts forever.
Thank you for everything, today and always.
We love you.
