I bought a cute, sparkly clutch but didn’t carry it. My important things were carried by my mom. 🙂

mrs2014:  no, I didn’t carry one!  Too much to worry about!  My mom took care of any items I might need (lipstick, tissues, etc.) and I didn’t bother to carry my cell phone at all.  Everyone I could possibly want to speak to was there!

mrs2014:  I had nothing I needed to take (bridesmaid just had tissues, lipstick. etc). As for your phone, how about in one of your husband’s suit pockets?

p.s. If you’re wondering how my bridesmaid carried the clurch during the ceremony – she didn’t. Her husband had it and gave it to her after the ceremony, so I could touch up my lipstick in between photos.

I’m getting married this weekend and didn’t even bother looking for one.  All the fancy little purses are so tiny- you aren’t going to be able to fit your touch up makeup in there.  I got a free small little duffle from pink, and I’m putting stuff in there (I’m actually going to throw my regular purse in there, touch up makeup, and will put my veil in there once I take it off), and having my mom and sister carry it throughout the night. I plan on taking it home with me from the reception at the end of the night.

Trust me, you dont need your phone. My phone was in a bag in our bridal suite the entire day. I never had time to look at it. And i had lipstick in one of the other girls purses.

I didn’t have one, and I didn’t need it. My mom and bridesmaids had everything I could have possibly needed. Our phones were left in our hotel room (by accident, but we didn’t miss them).

Does your venue have a bridal suite? Or an office where you can tuck a bag? If not I would leave important stuff with your mom since you know for certain she will be there till the end of the night.
