    I’m a little confused on the clutch – won’t they have bouquets to carry down the aisle? If not, I like the ruffly one at the bottom – it’s fun!

    ETA: I do think it will look quite matchy, but if that’s the look you’re going for, do it! Wink

    I think it will look better if they don’t match. I love the whole look, by the way!

    @mrsztobee: I also thought about my BM using clutches instead of bouquets. First it would be a “gift” that can be reused, second its different than what is expect. I don’t really care for flowers so their bouquets would be fake flowers anyways. I think I will have them possibly wear a corsage on one wrist and then carry a clutch in the other hand…but do you think this is too prom like? Or should they just carry a clutch?

    @mrsztobee:  I don’t think they should be navy…since that’s the color of your dress. But if your accessories (necklace and earrings) are silver then the clutch should be as well. I voted yes they should match b/c I was thinking about the clutch matching the accessories…so I may have voted wrong.

    @mrsztobee:  I think they should all have the same clutch. The last clutch is so pretty and I’m sure they’d all be able to use it again:)))

    I personally am not a fan of the clutches-in-lieu-of-flowers trend.  However, since you are using clutches, I would choose the same clutch for all of the bridesmaids. If each bridesmaid were wearing a different dress, then it would make sense to me to have them carry clutches unique to their individual looks.  However, to have all of the bridesmaids in identical navy dresses with identical jewelry — a look I absolutely love, by the way! — and then to have them carry different cluthes would just seem odd and would be very distracting to me.
