My fi gifted me an awesome hot pink  Prada clutch for the wedding!   it was handy to have my lipstick and any touch up makeup near me.  While we were running around taking pictures, i just stuck my lipgloss in his jacket pocket.  But once back at the venue, I had my DOC slip it on my chair for me so i could touch up when i needed during the night (your Maid/Matron of Honor or whomever can do the same)

I’m not really feeling the need to have one, but I just realized I’m going to need somewhere to put the handkerchief my friend got me. So maybe I should look in to one.

no. you don’t need one at all.

I put everything I might need in a bag and my Bridesmaid or Best Man carried it around for me on the day of. Really no point in buying a pretty bag for the wedding day that no one would be seeing you carrying it.

Actually, that is one of my regrets! I didn’t have my cell phone, visine, lip gloss, etc. when I needed it because it was all in my purse which I left my mom in charge of before I got in the limo. It was frustrating!

I had one and am glad I did. The morning of the wedding I loaded it with things I knew I would want/need, lipstick, blotting tissues, gum, R’x’s I take in the evening, the checks to pay the vendors and a small camera.

I had my hostess hold it during the ceremony then handed it to me before pics so I could touch up, then back to her and finally gave it to me when I sat down for dinner. I’m glad I had it since I’m the type of girl that would rather have something and not need it than to need it and not have it!!! and if there was anything I truly needed I had a bathroom basket in the ladies restroom full of necessities.

I bought a cheapish clutch from Payless Shoes (haha) and had my Maid/Matron of Honor carry it around for me.  Honestly though, I didn’t need anything in it (wait…I did take a Tylenol from it…that was good).  I would definitely have someone take care of it for you.  I definitely would’ve forgotten it somewhere.

Have your parents hold it for you since they will not be sitting far from your table.

I had one for lipstick, etc. and had my Maid/Matron of Honor carry it around beforehand with pictures and then in the dressing room later.  I found it helpful to go to in case I needed anything!

I plan on delegating that to my maid of honor 🙂 I’m not even sure I’ll need aside from my lip gloss.

I had one, I kept in it my lip color, a lil perfume, tissues, some money just in case, hairpins and a mirror. I’m glad I had my purse, although my Maid/Matron of Honor carried it most of the time until the reception.

I did not use one.  My venue had a nice bridal suite where I kept all my stuff.

My mother got one for my sister from a craftstore. It was like $3! I’m borrowing it for my wedding, going to sew some additional things on it to make it less plain. I definetly will want it for tissue, makeup etc.. but will probably ask someone to hold onto it before the reception.
