Now that you’ve found a dress, you’re ready to start thinking about accessories. Shoes and earrings are a given. Perhaps you plan to wear a shimmering hair comb and heirloom necklace as well. But what about a bridal clutch? Do you need one?
Since you probably won’t have car keys or money (a bride never pays on her wedding day!), you really don’t need a purse. But then there are those essentials such as a cell phone, tissues, lipstick, blotting papers, compact mirror, mints, and gum that you’ll want easy access to throughout your wedding day. Stashing everything in a clutch is going to make life a lot easier as you are taking pictures, talking with guests, dancing, and enjoying every amazing moment. A bridal clutch is not only practical, but also adds a touch of personality to your bridal look. And many designers are creating elegant and chic designs that you’ll want to carry post-wedding.
Here’s the perfect clutch for the bride-to-be with an empire state of mind. Inspired by the tradition of the new husband and wife taking their “just married” ride together, designer Kate Spade created this fun and stylish clutch made with a New York state license plate. Notice the convertible getaway car that doubles as the clasp. This clutch is wedding specific. But there is another version featuring ‘Forever’, which you’ll definitely find use for later.
For your “something blue,” look no further than this glittering gem that fades from navy to peackock. By designer Jimmy Choo, the ‘Sweetie’ clutch adds a posh, edgy note to bridal attire and would look great against a simple silk gown. And you’ll be totally prepared at your reception when the late night disco party gets started!
Many of our brides have walked down the aisle wearing Badgley Mischka, so it comes as no surprise that the beloved label also makes swoon-worthy wedding accessories. Glamorous yet elegant, the Amelia clutch is made of gorgeous silk with a drapery of sparkling jewels.
Make your fairy-tale wedding dreams come true with this beautiful clutch by designer Sophia Webster. Showcasing exquisite jewel detail, it brings to mind a princess tiara and would look breathtaking paired with a ball gown wedding dress.
Your style leans toward minimalism with clean and simple lines, but you are using your wedding day to go a little bolder than usual. Check out this faceted geometric box clutch in mother-of-pearl and hammered metal by Rafe. The design’s combination of textures, colors, and pattern is stunning, making this the perfect clutch for the modern bride.
You’ve planned your wedding to evoke the style and mood of the Roaring 20s and would love to carry a vintage clutch. With time running out, searching vintage boutiques is out of the question. Not to worry. Inspired by Art Deco, the ‘Heritage – Poiret’ mesh clutch by Whiting & Davis looks like it could have been the same bag that The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan chose for a night on the town.
Nothing says romance more than lace and pale pink. Without a doubt, the romantic bride will be incorporating these details into her wedding attire. The delicate look of this blush hued lace clutch by Adrianna Papell will surely steal her heart.
Accessories are an expression of a bride’s personality and style. We hope this guide helps you find that special clutch to carry on your wedding day and beyond.
