I just found an amazing deal online but cant make a purchase without your help. i need to know what to do.
My Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing Raspberry satin dresses with a chiffon overlay and silver shoes…could their clutches be black? (I am getting them as a gift for them..they will not be wearing them during ceremony just during reception).
My dress is white satin with a chiffon overlay, should I also get a black sating clutch? or should a get a white clutch? or should I get a raspberry clutch?
Here is teh catch. i am on a budget and the black and white clutches are currently on clearance for $5 (i posted this find on another thread).
What should i do?

I think you should the white clutch since you are the bride, but if you like the black clutch more, go for it!

I kind of like the idea of the raspberry clutch, would make a beautiful photograph with that pop of color. But the white or black would work just as beautifully too.

I’d get raspberry for Bridesmaid or Best Man and white for you if those are the only choices,but if they’re wearing silver shoes you would typically get silver bags.

I love raspberry with black for the BMs, and you know for sure they will re-use them. I honestly think you could go with either white or raspberry for yours; if budget is an issue then go with the white, you wont really be spending a lot of time with the clutch anyways!

Why do you need clutches at all? If you want to get it for your MB just as a gift, then get the black because they could definitely use those again! But honestly, you don’t need one for yourself. Your BMs/family will probably have most of your stuff, and it is not like you are going to walk around your own reception holding a clutch! So if you want it just because, don’t spend the money.

I don’t think it matters too much. Since they won’t be using them at the ceremony, its not like you’ll all be lined up holding them for everyone to see. And they’ll probably leave them at their chairs when they go dancing and stuff. So get whatever colors you like…

thanks for the advice ladies! i just ordered two black clutches (one for each of my BM). i did not get me one. after reading everyones thoughts i realized that i wont need one. My Maid/Matron of Honor will be going to the restroom with me to do my dress so she can carry my stuff :). i will not need anything with me…no cell or anything bc everyone i talk to will be with me! hehe…
I have decided to fill their clutches with “day of kit” stuff.
Just in case anyone is curious, i have decided on getting my Bridesmaid or Best Man the following:
At bridal shower (so they will have it all before the day of and they know what they will have for the day of and what they still need to get themselves):
day of outfit (shirt, pants, flip flops)
reusable water tote
Clutch for reception with “day of kit” inside
On day of:

I did the same for my flower girl 🙂
