I’m trying to figure out if I should have a purse, and if I do, what I will do with it during the ceremony. I kind of think I need one, because I want to be able to call my Maid/Matron of Honor to let her know we are arriving at our reception, so she can gather everyone together before we arrive at dinner. I’ll also want my lipstick and my room key.
Just not sure what to do with it, or if I should just give stuff to my Mom to carry, or what.

is there a bride’s room in the church? you can leave it there…or in the car you’ll be taking to leave the church.

We’re not getting married in a church, we are getting married in a garden. I am being “dropped off” at the gate by horse and carriage. My Maid/Matron of Honor (only attendant) and mom will be with me.

I guess I could use FIs phone, and have my Mom carry my lipstick

I set mine on a chair in the courtroom…not much help, I know. Perhaps you could leave it in the car or something? Otherwise, have your mom or Maid/Matron of Honor or someone else put the important stuff in their purse.

As a girl with big ta-tas, I find that my cleavage is the ideal place to carry things when a purse isn’t possible.
Don’t judge me! =)

I had a small clutch with the essentials. My Mother-In-Law held onto everything until the reception for me.

I’m with you CaitMarae! I would put your phone in a plastic baggie (in case of sweating from nerves!) and stash it in your bra! If that is not an option may be better to have hubs hold it for you, he should have pockets in his jacket!

my sister used a purse at her wedding and so did I as a Maid/Matron of Honor. We gave them to my mom to have a family member hold on to them.
there was a bride’s room, but we weren’t allowed to leave anything in there.
I will probably end up doing the same thing for my wedding, or else just leave it at the hotel until after the ceremony.

Can you leave it or have someone bring it to the reception site as you probably won’t be using it during the ceremony.

I had my cousin hold on to it during the ceremony for me

When my sister got married, I carried all of my items in my tote she gave me as a gift. She didn’t want to talk to anybody anyway, so the phone was the first thing she gave me. I had her bridal emergency kit (lip gloss, face powder, face sponge, baby wipes to remve any stains from the dress, etc). I stashed it by the DJs booth during the wedding and under the sweetheart table at the reception.

I just locked mine in the trunk of the car I arrived in… I had my dad carry a couple essential items in his pockets. Then I just stashed it under the table at the reception.

I left mine in the conference room of the synagogue where we got dressed. However, it doesn’t sound like that’s an option for you. I would just give it to your mother or someone else not in the wedding party to hold until after the ceremony.
