Can you post pictures? I think the sentimental one would be a very nice touch, but if you don’t think it goes with your dress and is going to cause you more stress than necessary, go with the safer one and take the LV bag on a date with your fiance instead.

TeamByerly2016:  Haha I hear ya! Personally, if I were using a hot pink bag at my burgundy and grey wedding, it wouldn’t bother me too much because I would probably tuck it in the bridal suite before the wedding and then on my chair at the reception, so no one would really see it and I wouldn’t be photographed with it. So it wouldn’t be a major accessory for the day, and it wouldn’t be on me for that long, but that’s just how I use my purses. So I think it comes down to, how long is this clutch going to be next to your dress, and how much will it bother you if it doesn’t match?

If she isn’t going to be at the wedding, just have the photographer take photos with the bag when they do those accessory photos. Then, use the LV.

TBH- no one will see the bag on your wedding day. I skipped the clutch and just brought in my normal big purse. No one saw. Use the sentimental one for the rehearsal dinner for everyone to see and the Fiance can get compliments on it too. USe the other for the wedding

I would lean toward the strong personality evening bag(it doesn’t hurt that it’s LV either!). It’s nice that it also has sentimental connections. Then again, I am willing to go against the grain with a lot of things. So do whatever you think is most suitable for you and your day. I am sure either option will look lovely.

I don’t think it’s a matter of which bag will look best with your dress. I also don’t think you are ever obligated to wear or use something that someone else chose for you- especially for such a specific occasion as your wedding.

As a pp has said, no one is going to see you with your clutch except maybe for a moment as you pass their table on the way to the bathroom. Take both, have some pics taken with both, you will both be happy.

I would use the one that your Fiance got you and pretend you used the other one.

Though honestly, I didnt use a bag at all. I had a big bag packed for the hotel stay that stayed in the bridal suite all night.
