bridal hankie holder

I've never really been able to understand the attraction of the hankie. I mean, if you don't use it it's without function, and if you do, it becomes particularly unpleasant and, frankly, not the kind of thing that would tempt me to spend almost eighteen American dollars to display it like this: bridal hankie holder for a weddingIf I were to display my hankie at all, I mean. I haven't quite made up my mind.

I don't get it! Is this like a display for a used hanky, to make into a keepsake? Has the world gone mad?

The world has, apparently, gone mad. I can't quite figure out if it's a display for a used hankie, or if the bride uses the holder to carry the hankie down the aisle. Maybe it's because the hankie is too dirty to touch? Who can say?

Wouldn't you feel funny blowing your nose on someone's dress? And then it might look gross when you put it back when you are done.

I have an heirloom hankie that's been waiting in a drawer since I was an infant--it's one of those heirloom things that with just a stitch or two turns into a baby bonnet. Apparently I wore it at my baptism, and when the stitches are cut it turns back into a hankie, and then as long as I only use it for wiping tears and not blowing my nose, I can wash it, stitch it back up, and voila! bonnet for my own babies.

But the hankie display is stupid.
