My wedding is a little less than 4 weeks away – I can’t believe it! I’ve been busy getting the final details figured out, including bridesmaid gifts for my 7 bridesmaids and 3 junior bridesmaids. I’ve already purchased them all necklaces to wear for the wedding.
Now that I’ve bought their necklaces, I also wanted to get them a bag or clutch. Our wedding color is “European LIlac” – whichi is a light purple/grey color, and they are all wearing silver shoes. If I got them a bag, I was thinking some sort of tote that I could have personalized with their names or initials. If I did a clutch, I would probably do a silver one (possibly with purple accent) to match the wedding colors. I’m having a tough time deciding!
Here are a few clutch styles I’ve found that I like, let me know what you think! I would probably do one style for the bridesmaids and a different style for the junior bridesmaids:
If I did totes, I found these:
Please let me know what you think – do you like any of these?! Which one for the bridesmaids and which for junior bridesmaids? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! We are getting close to the big day, and some of these offer personalization, which would take longer!
Thanks SO much!!!!! 🙂

Clutch 4 but I think I’d personally rather have the tote 6 b/c I know I’d get more use out of it!

So most people think if you’re getting bridesmaids things for the wedding day, they aren’t gifts – they’re part of the ‘uniform’.
I think the first clutch is the cutest, although I don’t use clutches myself. Why not get them individualised cluthes in colours they’d each like, rather than to match your wedding?

I like clutches 1 & 4 the best, but only if they are in a color I would use after the wedding. Lilac or “silver” are out. A silvery grey (that is not metalic) would be fine.
Because you want to go with the wedding colors, I would then choose a tote. I like 6 the best with my initials and nothing else.
How old are you junior bridesmaids? If they are 11-13, I’d go with tote 5 for them. 14+ I’d do the clutch. If they are younger than that… something else entirely. They are too young for clutches and too small to carry a tote!

@kittyface: My thoughts too.
Those bags are really cute but do you think they’ll use them? I would get them each something different that they enjoy instead of more stuff for your wedding.
