The History of Bridal Handkerchiefs

The bridal handkerchief has been a staple in weddings for centuries, dating back to ancient Roman times.

Over time, the handkerchief has evolved into a sentimental keepsake that is often passed down through generations.

How to Incorporate a Bridal Handkerchief into Your Wedding Day

Incorporating a bridal handkerchief into your wedding day ensemble is simple and elegant. Here are a few ideas on how to carry a handkerchief on your wedding day:

  1. Tucked into your bouquet: Securely fasten the handkerchief to your bouquet's stems using a beautiful ribbon or pin. This allows you to have the handkerchief within easy reach throughout the ceremony.

  2. Folded in your clutch or purse: Neatly fold the handkerchief and place it inside your bridal clutch or small purse for easy access when needed.

  3. Wrapped around your wrist: For a unique and stylish option, consider wrapping the handkerchief around your wrist and securing it with a delicate ribbon or bracelet.

  4. Pinned to your gown: Attach the handkerchief to the inside of your gown or on the waistline using a small, discreet pin. This way, you'll have it close by without it being visible to others.

No matter how you choose to carry your bridal handkerchief, it will serve as a beautiful and meaningful accessory on your special day.

Bella Rosa As Seen in Netflix's Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story

Netflix’s “Bridgerton” gave us characters to root for, steamy love stories, and iconic “Regencycore” to inspire our summer closets. Now, we have the prequel spinoff to keep us satiated while we await the next season and it does not disappoint.

India Amarteifio in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story (2023)

The new miniseries,"Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story," premiered on May 4. Set in the 1700s, viewers get the opportunity to learn the backstory of the queen (and how she attained her immaculate fashion sense.) 

Ultimately, it’s the little details in the lavish costumes that are signature for a good period piece. (According to Vogue, the hair department created around 1,500 unique wigs for the series.) Similarly, Bella Rosa, under the creative direction of award-winning costume designer Lyn Paolo, was tapped to design custom-made drawstring bags (similar to the Sarah Drawstring) for the show’s costume department.

Bella Rosa translated Lyn's 15 unique bag sketches into stunning pieces of art for the series, matching the costume designer's vision for couture Regency. The bags are seen in the hands of many characters throughout the series, including the Young Queen Charlotte (played by India Ria Amarteifio) and Lady Violet Bridgerton (played by Ruth Gemmell).

*Disclaimer: The sketches displayed are solely Bella Rosa's artistic interpretations of the creative process and are not the actual sketches provided by Lyn Paolo.

Designed with the Regency-era in mind, the drawstring closure is historically accurate. Ladies in the 18th century preferred to carry small bags with drawstrings that were known as “reticules” in France and “indispensables” in England. Each is unique and one of a kind, just like each character’s personality. Each bag was designed by Lyn to meticulously coordinated with each costume down to the smallest detail.

And if we know anything about the world of “Bridgerton,” they love to draw out meaning from every detail. For example, the color palette of dark blues, greys and black drawstring purses were designed with a certain funeral scene in mind. (No spoilers!) 

After binging the `six episode series, you may find your closet lacking the Regencycore you desire. While the bags produced for “Queen Charlotte” aren’t available for purchase, The Sarah Drawstring Purse ($1275) is crafted with Italian duchess satin and lavish ostrich feathers.

The Shimmer Champagne Bella Clutch, As Worn By Samantha Sutton on Her Glamorous Wedding Day

Samantha Sutton-Fetch, fashion editor at InStyle, was sure about one thing — her wedding was going to be as glamorous as NYFW.

The wedding dress was designed by Galia Lahav, a powerhouse of couture, known for dressing the elite fashion girlies of the likes of Paris Hilton for her wedding, Beyonce for the Oscars, and Jennifer Lopez for her latest rom-com Shotgun Wedding. Identical to the ball gown designed for actress Nesta Cooper, Sutton’s dress featured voluminous, sheer lantern sleeves, cutout details, and a deep v-cut that gave it a more sensual nature.

From head to toe, Sutton was dripping in romance. Her messy Cinderella story-inspired updo wasn’t complete without her Jennifer Behr headpiece, which was handmade and embellished with crystals. The Larroude’s Dolly Sandal ($315) in gold metallic leather matched perfectly with the Bella Rosa Champagne Shimmer Bella Clutch ($2,250). The glitter purse’s sparkle effect leather is smooth to the touch, which means Sutton’s couture gown was safe from snags and pulls. The comfortable platform heels paired with the cleverly designed clutch made the accessories not only glamorous but functional. And who doesn’t love that on a wedding day?

In a reception outfit change that's become ever so popular among brides recently, Sutton revealed a Nadine Merabi’s Amelia White Jumpsuit ($595) with an embellished pearl mesh top and signature feather trim cuffs on the sleeve. Made from crepe fabric, the bottoms provided a subtle contrast to the intricate beading separated by a thin white belt.

And the purse wasn’t left behind at the wedding ceremony. Perfectly sized to carry all the essentials — phone, red lipstick, concealer for touch-ups — the sparkle bag kept the party going late into the night and beyond. With a custom engraving: “You’re so fetch” (a clever reference to her new last name), Mrs. Fletch will have a keepsake for years to come.
