    I think the lace would be too much but any of the other options would work, I love the beaded one though.

    I think the pattern on the lace and beaded clutches would get lost against the lace of your dress.

    I like the plain ruched one 🙂 It strikes me as very “bridal”

    I’m curious though – when will you carry the clutch? At my wedding it would have stayed in the “getting ready” room for the ceremony, and on the table at the reception (which I only sat at for dinner) so I did not have one. It would have been nice to have my lipstick on hand, but didn’t get the logistics of a clutch for a bride so I skipped it.

    I like the beaded for the contrast.

    I like the lace one and the plain ruched one.

    @aggie2010:  I agree. Not sure it matters in the end since you won’t be carrying it around or really using it.

    My clutch stayed with a friend for all but 5 minutes between venues when I needed it for a lipstick refresher (and managed to get lipstick on it, oy!). I think it doesn’t matter what you pick.

    That said, I like the lace or the pinky one.

    I love the last one. Satin would look great to match the satin sash on the dress.

    I think that last ruched one will be gorgeous, but the pink flower one would be cute too. I wouldn’t go with the beaded one (it clashes in style, IMO — blinged out vs. romantic), and the lace could be a possibility, I suppose.

    Honesty time here, though: we have precisely one picture of me with my clutch, and that’s because I’m reapplying lipgloss while my husband holds my clutch and contemplates the product design of the lipgloss (wand + bottle). It stayed with my mom or MOH for pretty much the whole day, so it’s not even like anyone really saw me with it.

    So! I would ultimately go with the one that makes you happiest and that you might have the best chance of re-using. 🙂

    They are all so gorgeous. I think I’d pick the satin with ruching to let the pattern on your dress shine. 🙂

    I like the satin against the lace! You don’t want to have too much of the same texture! I didn’t even use my clutch, so don’t agonize over it.  🙂

    One thing to think about that I wish I had realized before our wedding.  The beaded one is likely to get caught on the lace.  My beaded clutch kept getting caught in the lace of my dress, and I kept having to say…”wait, I have to unhook my purse.”
