so, i’m in the process of sorting out accessories for my dress and I was wondering what to do for a clutch – i think i’ll definitely need something to hold lipgloss / makeup / tissues etc…
I made this on the weekend inspired by one i saw online – but now i’m thinking it’s not dressy enough – what have you girls done about a clutch?
and this is my dress – i kind of liked the simplicity of the clutch when my dress is really the focus…
FYI – I think i might make a new flower for the clutch so that it matches the one on my dress better…

This was mine, in all honesty it was more of an annoyance to remember that thing than anything else. The day was so packed that several times my BM’s had to rescue it or hold it for me. I really wish I hadn’t used one and spent the money I used for it else where.

@Sassygrn: thanks for the input – I thought it could get annoying – did you have a strap or something? I sewed in a strap around my wrist so that I don’t have to hold it all the time…
Glad i didn’t spend much on it – just some fabric from the store and an old flower clip i had already made and some time spent behind the sewing machine! Won’t matter if I don’t use it i guess… in saying that i am a handbag girl and won’t feel right without something!

@Gardenbride2012: Mine did have a strap on it yes. I didn’t spend much money on it either, got it on ebay.
I know what you mean I love purses of all kinds and feel weird not having one, I can you though the day of your wedding the last thing on your mind will be your handbag. Great idea in theory but in reality doesn’t work the greatest!

I have this one, but I’ve ended up just getting a new dress, which I don’t think it will go with 🙁 I love it though……but I think I’m back to the drawing board clutch wise!

@Gardenbride2012 you made that?! Wow! Awesome. Your dress looks great too btw. I think the purse is dressy enough though and agree with you that it offers a nice contrast to your dress with it’s intricate lace applique etc.
I decided not to get one because I don’t usually carry around a purse and I don’t know where you put it during the day! I might do a sneaky and shove a lipgloss in my fiance’s suit!

I want a clutch, but I’m not sure which one yet. I’ve been looking at this one, and I love it, but I wish it was a softer pink, or more coral or something:

@moonadea: oooo i love this clutch – where can i get this? I want one just for my wardrobe!!!
I’ve finally done the wedding timeline and I think i’ll be using my clutch during the first look and photos – with a little mirror and lipstick so I can reapply. Then i’ll give it to one of my girlfriends to take to the reception!

Got this one for my beach wedding. With there being no place to get ready at where the ceremony is at I will def want a few essentials for touchups(will also keep small makeup bag in the car) .

I would ask my Fiance to hold the things for me, lipgloss, ID, etc…Why do you think he has pockets for? LOL He has 4 pockets or at least 2 in his pants…. if he is wearing a full suit, he has 4 in his jacket… 2 outside and 2 inside! He has only 1 wallet… so we have basically 6 that we can claim as ours! HeeHee
