    StL.Ashley:   I had a clutch but I wouldn’t pay that price for that one. Only you can decide if that clutch is worth that amount of money to you.

    Basically the seller has taken a common white clutch which can be purchased from about $16 and up,   and added a silk bow. You could do that yourself, or have a seamstress do it for you.

    julies1949: I agree… this looks like an easy DIY. But if you really feel like you HAVE TO HAVE it, then yes… it is your wedding so treat yourself! 😉

    StL.Ashley:  At first I would have voted no, pointless.  BUT, then I saw your comment that you don’t have a bridal suite – that’s where everything you listed off will be stored for me so in your case, unless you want to track down your mom, MOH, DOC, or whoever each time you need something, I say get it.  But the cheaper version you found.

    I had a clutch and did NOT use it at all (I think I put a cookie in it … which never got eaten LoL).  It looks great in pictures though!  If you want to treat yourself, go ahead!

    I think it’s adorable…I think you could use it again too if you ever dress up.  Only you know if the price is worth it for you.

    I didn’t have a clutch. Gave my credit card to my brother, who then passed it on to DH. My MOH carried my makeup and kleenex, etc. 

    I wouldn’t bother but if you think you’ll regret it, just get it!
