You can get them as a bridesmaids gift without your BMs carrying it during the ceremony.  It’s just a gift – its not something specifically for the wedding.

Some bees have posted about having their girls carry cluthes instead of flowers.  Not my style, but if that’s something you want you can do that too.

As for the bride – I have no desire to have to keep track of a clutch on the day of my wedding.  What are you really going to have to have with you at all times anyways?  If you need make-up for touch-ups or something, ask your MOH to carry it for you.  But that’s just me!

I ordered a vintage clutch from Etsy that I just happened to stumble on, and it was perfect for my wedding.  But it doesn’t look “bridal” so I can use it again.  I definitely did not want to purchase a clutch just for my wedding that I could never use again.

However, I found that it really wasn’t necessary.  I mean, it’s not like I ever really carried it with a lot of people around to notice it.  It was kept stashed away at my venue anyway, and I would just take stuff out of it whenever I needed it.  Also, I didn’t like being hindered by the small space of it.  I think I would have been fine just using one of my regular purses.

I was thinking about giving my bridesmaids clutches as a gift as well.  I definitely wasn’t planning on them carrying them down the aisle, but thought it would be useful for carrying lipstick or anything they may want to have with them at the reception.  I was looking at a specific clutch at jcrew.com… a little pricey (well, to me at least) but I only have two bridesmaids and it would be one of their main presents.  Their dresses and shoes are a very dark chocolate brown… Do you think this would go with them? Is this clutch cute or is it hideous?  Looking for honest opinions!

Yeah, I can’t figure out how to carry both a clutch and a bouquet.  Does your groom carry your cell phone and lipstick in his pocket or something?

I was having hard time figuring out the ceremony/flower/clutch dilemma. None of our BM have dates so they can’t be responsible. I was thinking I could take them from them at the salon in the morning back to the Inn (where the reception is and I’m getting ready). I figure they’d want them there and then for the after party. Maybe this is where I’d like a clutch! Although I think I’m just looking for an excuse to buy another etsy item I fell in love with. 

 

@MaggieGirl just my two cents the Jcrew clutch isn’t something I would pick out for myself particularly and I shop at Jcrew regularly. Not sure what their dresses look like…what about something like this? It’s from here and you can change the ruffle colors just a thought!

i made one myself!  I had just kept it in the back of the church during the ceremony.  It was with us in the limo.  And then I kept it at my seat at the reception/dance.

I saw on “My Fair Wedding” with David Tutera that he gave the BMs clutches that had a fresh flower corsage thing pined to them. They carried those instead of bouquets.

I’m going to do that with my girls. I figure its something they can use again. Plus, what do they really do woth their bouquets once the ceremony is over??

If anyone has seen a picture of these clutches please send them to me, My florist is having a bit of a hard time understanding my vision…lol..

For bridesmaid – may be, but for bride, I think, it’s not neccessary.

My super cute clutch from my wedding.  During the ceremony it was where I got ready.  I then took it with me with touch-up make-up, phone, oil absorbing sheets, mints, and the like.  We went to take pictures without bridal party so having my own things was important. I also had a bag with extra shoes and stuff that I stowed under the table.  My clutch was on the table during the reception and I just loved it. 12038642_1078011018875728_1256253813925400868_o
