    I was all about some cute clutches, and then I decided to sew one myself!

    I had a sparkly white one my mom bought somewhere online! It’s very vintage and I really do love it. I think I kept eyelash glue, my ID, lipstick and lipgloss, and bobby pins in it. Stuff my girls could have carried, but it worked for me! I also kept my jewelry in it until I was ready to put it on.

    All along I had an image of me carrying my dream clutch … but now that I’m getting closer and closer, I realize it will be in my way. Where will I put it? How will I know it will not get “taken” by someone on accident … what if I am holding it and …

    Like all of those thoughts come to mind and I just feel like it’s not something I will want to carry around on my day.

    I actually bought a white fabric wristlet bag for someone else’s wedding a couple of years ago. It has rhinestones and silver and clear beads all over it. I forgot all about it but when I mentioned to Fiance that I was going to buy a purse, he reminded me that we already spent $$ on a white bag. Haha. How come he has such a good memory all of a sudden? It’s very pretty and I’m glad I get to put ti to use again.

    I  used a clutch that I already had on the wedding day (a ruffley gold number).  It looked cute, but honestly, I don’t think I opened it more than once!  I think I might have checked my lipstick between ceremony and reception, but that was it.  In fact, I realized that I had left it in the reception room as we were leaving, and had to have my brother run up to get it.  I think if I would have bought something new, I would have gotten something that I thought I could use again in a different context (aka nothing too “bridal”).  I think I needed it less than I anticipated I would.

    mine was similar to EJs…It was my great-aunt’s vintage ivory beaded clutch.  My mom carred it on her wedding day too, I used to play dress up with it.  I seriously only had a compact and lip gloss in there, it was TOALLY unnecessary.  I was handing it off all day then finally plopped it on the head table and let it be

    I did have a clutch.  I only carried it briefly when I arrived at the venue.  I kept my makeup in it for touch-ups.  It came in handy and it’s really nice sentimental keepsake.

    I found it for $7 at a little shop near my family’s cabin called "Charming but Cheap, and Possibly Antique"
