The Perfect Bridal Clutch to Hold Your Wedding Day Essentials

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.

Samara + Keshar: Magical Simplicity at Tribeca 360

Growing up in Edgemont, NY, Samara was always close with her best friend’s older sister Amy. Hanging out after school or on weekends, she always admired Amy’s boyfriend’s best friend Keshar from a distance, but at the time seven years was much too wide an age gap for her to think of acting on her crush.  Little did she know their paths would cross again years later, when Amy and her boyfriend got married.  This time, the seven year age difference didn’t make things seem so out of the question.

A few months later, after completing a medical rotation in London and Florida, Keshar called Samara and asked her out on their first date. The following Saturday, he picked her up at 10 AM for a delicious brunch at Norma’s followed by an entire day in Central Park.  It was the longest first date either of them had ever been on, and they’ve been together ever since…
