I am also using hankies.  Our hankies say Mother but that is just because I got vintage ones and didn’t do custom creation.  I personally think that Mom is nice especially if you are attaching a poem.  I would also go with colors that match YOU!

i dont think the colors of the hankie have to match the wedding completly. but i think black would be fine maybe some green accent, like  swirls or something.

i would go with whatever you call them, mom and dad is fine if thats what you call them.

you can do “mother of the bride” then the date.

also i dont know what your poems say, but some kind of thank you might be a nice touch.

Mom, thank you for teaching me to love. (or something like that)

For my mom I’m doing:
Today a bride,
Tomorrow a wife,
Always a daughter
And best friend for life.

For my Mother-In-Law:
Thank you for raising your son to be the man of my dreams.

A little cheesy, but they’ll love it.

I’ve seen hankies on Etsy.com, I also found mine at Hobby Lobby then I’m going to get them embroidered as well.

I love the idea of personalized hankies for my wedding! I’m probably getting mine from CoutureWeddingHankie on Etsy http://www.CoutureWeddingHankie.etsy.com.  I love her styles.

For the moms they say ‘Mother of the Bride/Groom’ with the date and a flower.  For my dad it will have the date and ‘Another One Bites the Dust.’  He initially wanted this as our father/daughter dance, but either my mom talked him out of it or he chickened out 🙂
