Victorian tear catchers, usually used by a widowed bride. Upon the day of the funeral, the widow would collect her tears into this small vile, and all the tears she cried in the first year over the loss of her husband, she would capture in this vile she would wear upon her neck. And on the anniversary of his death, she pours the preserved tears atop his gravesite. It’s tragic, and prolongs the suffering for ritualistic purposes. However, it’s quite poetic. Sort of weird.

A lacrimal, also known as a tear bottle, is used to catch the tears of the mourning. During the Victorian period of the 19th century, those who were mourning would collect their tears in the bottle with special stoppers that allowed the tears to evaporate. When the tears evaporated, the mourning period would end.

Inexpensive wedding fact I don't how you could get something for less. Tin cans spraypainted white; wrap in a small piece of lace (thrift stores are excellent places for lace scraps) and filled with baby's breathe.
