Magic Hanky: This charming custom symbolizes fertility. Traditionally the bride incorporates it into her dress, carries it with the bouquet or carries it in her sleeve. Once the wedding is over, the bride uses the handkerchief to make a christening bonnet for her first-born child. For this shoot, they tied/wrapped the brides wildflower bouquet with an embroidered ‘magic’ hanky. (via Irish Wedding Traditions | Green Wedding Shoes Wedding Blog)
