sarahquinn:  I like the look. There are some very elegant clutches out there.

Not a fan. Looks way too “girls night out!” and not wedding-ish in my opinion.

I didn’t know this was a trend. I haven’t seen it before. 

I’m not a fan of those particular clutches. Do you have any other photos?

I think it looks silly. Why would a bunch of women carry small bags when all they’ll be doing is standing next to the bride? It might make sense for the MOH if she’ll be carrying the rings or vows, but it still looks pretty silly. 

In my opinion, it gives the impression that whoever chose the bridesmaid’s look is trying super-duper hard to be different. Being different is fine, but it doesn’t look too good when that effort is obvious. 

That being said, the clutch-instead-of-bouquet thing could look good, but I think the clutch would have to be designed very well and maybe have an unusual pattern or fabric.

I don’t like it… Reminds me of girls night out as well… And I don’t really get it? Why would they be carrying clutches… At least flowers have a traditional meaning. However that is just my opinion and i think you should do what ever makes you happy x as that is all that matters at the end of the day

You should do what you want. Carrying purses at least makes more sense than carrying balls of flowers, as they can actually be used.

I say go with what makes you happy. I’m seriously contemplating having moss handbags similar to this for my girls.

I read it and thought YES because clutches are wayyyyy more useful than flowers, it will save you money AND it could be your gift to them (the bag and some things in it they will need for the day). But then I saw the picture and wasn’t sold, it does look a little ‘night out-ish’. I think if you could find a really elegent clutch it would work, but not those in the picture.  I think this picture looks much better so maybe pick a clutch with flowers on? or a posh flower broach clutch?

I love the idea, wandering around holding a bunch of flowers is pretty pointless anyway. At least clutches are usefull!

What about pinning an actual flower to the clutches? Something large and gorgeous, a hydrangea or an orchid or something. Best of both worlds! And I love pp idea of guving the clutch as a gift with wedding day essentials! Too cute!

I don’t reallyt like the idea.  It would have to be some clutch to replace a beautiful bouquet.
