    oh no i think its sooo chic… i have toyed with the idea but the clutches i love are on etsy and a bit on the expensive side (by mollusa) … so i may just stick to flowers… i dont know yet! 🙂

    I like the idea, but I think that purse may be a tad dainty and understated for the purpose. Maybe if combined with a parasol it would work better.

    I just saw an episode of David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding where he had the BMs carry clutches with a single calla lily affixed to the front. It was really pretty. I think you could pair the clutches with a big flower to make it stand out more.

    If you like the purse go for it. Consider what your bms will be most comfortable with as well.

    @elaineathon: I saw that episode too and am toying with the idea. I think this is a very chic idea.

    I like the purse down the aisle idea, but I’d be worried about the formal pictures.  Are the ‘maids just going to hold their purses in them.  It might look awkward.  And if they just set the purses off to the side and had nothing to hold that might look weird too.

    I voted for purse, and I’m not taking that back….but I agree that if the purse too small/understated (can’t really tell from the pic), I’m not sure how it would look in pictures. A more structured bag might be easier for them to hold…something like this?

    Goes great with your vintage theme, and much more affordable (and usable afterwards)!

    @tritaratops: LOVE that idea. The single bloom is also a good choice.

    I love this idea. And I would totally do it, and maybe with a wrist corsage so they get a little flower love too but it’s not too in the way for them.

    I’d personally rather have the bouquet even though the clutches are cute

    I’m a fan of the purse idea! If it were any other purse, I might say go for the bouquet. But your purse is GORGEOUS!!!
