    I didn’t have one and I didn’t need one. I will say this though, I’ve seen some super cute ones that others have posted pictures of on this site and I almost wanted to get one just to have a cute clutch. I didn’t care about putting anything in it 🙂

    I voted but I already used a clutch on the wedding day. I put my lip glosses and perfume in it for touch-ups and I definitely used it at the reception. The only thing I regret is not putting gum in it!

    Nope! I won’t need one…

    I would love to buy a really chic little clutch, but I’m really trying to edit the things I’ll actually need on the day. If I need lip gloss or other makeup essentials- my MOH will be the one lugging it round not me 😛 lol

    yes, getting one. (actually… err…. bought three! all eBay vintage, 1940s little purses; all cheap…. three? i think i lost my mind! heh heh. si just wanted to get more bridal stuff. keepsake. actually, i think i’ll have one of my 7 or 8 year old nieces deputized to carry it. it will hold a wedding hankies — might need it in the island heat! — lipstick…. a spare bobby pin… etc. )

    I generally feel naked without a purse or clutch of some sort but decided to have everything put in a locked room close to the reception that I could go to it in case I needed to do touchups.  Thinking about it now, I wish that I would have left some articles with my maid of honor or my mom on the wedding day, which would have made my items more accessible.

    I kind of want  a cute adorable one just to have for pictures.  But I’m sure I’ll use it too.  I won’t carry it everywhere, or be worried about having it with me at all times, but I’m sure there will be some things I’ll want to carry around like in the morning, and on the way to the reception, etc.

    The position of my wedding clutch will be filled by my 5 bridesmaids. Lol. I kid, I kid. Actually, I’m planning to use this Chanel bag.

    Probably not, but that’s just because I fully intend to find a dress with pockets! Or make a garter flask. No, JK. But it would be awesome.

    Lol. A garter flask would be awesome, if even just for the street cred of wearing a garter flask on your wedding day. :p

    @fifty! love the Chanel!  if I can afford to get something that I can treasure and keep using beyond the wedding, yes, I’ll get one.  But alas, not in budget.  So, I’m going w/o one.  I have a Mary Norton clutch that I “invested” in, perhaps use that for pictures?

    I was thinking what FIFTY thought…isn’t that why I have bridesmaids!  I didn’t think it was necessary and it would just be another expense!  All i need is lipgloss and I’m good to go!!

    My fiancé’s mom just got married, so I’m going to use her clutch.  It wasn’t anything terrible fancy, she made it at 1154 Lil in all white fabric.  I figure it’ll be my ‘something borrowed.’

    okay, i’ve got to stop procrastinating (supposed to be working tonight). but here are two of the 3 — !!– wedding clutches i bought. the white one is vintage guipure lace on a vintage 1940s clutch, from etsy. the gold one is 1940s vintage whiting and davis metal-mesh (tons and tons of these are available affordably on ebay or rubylane.com, starting very affordably, around $35 … and up)

    @sleepylittlesailor- That first clutch is. so. cute. Who made that on Etsy?! I must know!

    My maids of honor are less than dependable, so a clutch is a must for me. Plus I’m slightly OCD about chapstick, and I have no doubt that I’ll be dashing around the corner to check my forehead for any shinyness!
