  • poll: Do you think it's a good idea and do you like the choice of clutch?

    I think it's a good idea, I like Maud

    I think it's a good idea, you could do better on the choice of clutch

    I think it's a silly idea, stick to flowers

    I'd like to offer an alternative optionโ€ฆ {aka: OTHER}

    @MrsBee2B:  I’m a flower type of girl, but if you aren’t, then I think you should do the clutch.

    I do, however, think you could find a much prettier and more bridal clutch.

    What about a brooch bouquet so you can take it with you.

    I would find it kind of strange and wonder why she was carrying a purse and not flowers.

    If the handbag is more you OP then get it. I would get both. In my opinion a bride needs a bouquet…& a handbag. I’m having both. My love bought me a Kate Spade handbag in our wedding colour. I’m so excited to use it. I’ve never had a designer handbag. 

    But back to you. Get whatever makes you happy be it a clutch or something else.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m a handbag girl…and I love Anya Hindmarch. She also does this pale powder blue silk box clutch with crystal trim…SO pretty and perfect for a wedding.

    However, for me a bridal clutch would just be one of those chic details that your photographer can capture on the say. It will probably spend the entire day either being carried by your bridesmaid, or sitting pretty on the bridal table.

    If a bride actually walked down the aisle carrying a clutch instead of a bouquet, I would definitely find it odd. But I hope you buy it anyway – what a lovely reminder (and potential heirloom) of your wedding day.

    If you want to do clutches- I say go for it. I would probably have the bridesmaids walk down the aisle with the groomsman and so it isn’t as awkward walking but that is your choice. Another great alternative to the bouquet would be also having a wrist corsage which would be very easy to DIY if you bring some floral tape with you and grab a small bouquet at a market.

    I wouldn’t say it’s a silly idea, but I would definitely find it odd to see a bride carrying a clutch down the aisle. Ultimately you should do what is most meaningful to you, and if it’s a pretty clutch rather than a bouquet, then by all means, go ahead. But if you’re hesitant to order a bouquet because you won’t know what it will look like, then maybe consider something like a single stem lily, or a very simple bouquet of just one kind of your favourite flowers. It’d be hard to go wrong there. If I were in your position, I’d order both. You will definitely need a small clutch that day for essentials anyway (eg lip stick, tissues etc) and if you don’t like the bouquet you end up with, you can use the clutch in its place and it’ll be a wonderful keepsake that you can reuse afterwards.

    @MrsBee2B:  I LOVE the clutch idea. Very classy, unique, and you definitely stay true to your tastes! I am a firm believer that you should pick whatever you love and what will make you the happiest. There are a lot of gorgeous and classy clutches that would be perfect for the occasion!

    Have you considered a silk bouquet? I ordered mine from Morgann Hill on Etsy and I can highly recommend her.

    @MrsBee2B:  I’m not a fan of the clutch trend but I understand that my taste isn’t for anybody and would have voted that you go for it until I saw the price tag!  $720 for any accessory would get a no from me.
