    I probably won’t end up using mine much, but I plan on carrying a pop of color clutch, and mainly jsut using some lip gloss out of it.

    I need something to put my lipgloss in ๐Ÿ™‚

    I almost spent $100 on a beautiful one from etsy, but I just couldn’t justify spending that much on a white clutch.

    So, I found a new one on ebay that was royal blue (my something blue) for $15. I can totally reuse too because I have a cocktail dress that goes with it!

    I always have to have something to carry my goodies in! I never go anywhere without a purse or bag. I think it’s a comfort thing – so I most definitely will be toting around something! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Crap, I meant to vote for the second option!

    Yes, I’m getting a clutch, and I am SO SO SO EXCITED, it’s gorgeous! Yay for etsy!  I’m getting a custom one- I don’t want one that is too small, I think the standard kisslock 8″ frame is too small for me, so I am doing a 10″ one with a big bow from Viabella for $78.

    So far I’ve only splurged on two bridal items- an etsy pearl bracelet I couldn’t DIY because I couldn’t find a matching brooch, and this clutch. I got a wonderful sewing machine at my shower and completely intended on making my own, but I’m so bogged down with working on other things that I decided to just splurge and buy one.

    I’m one of those people who carry everything in their purse all the time, “be prepared” and all that (I even have a survival kit and a flint in my purse that my Fiance bought me, just because YOU NEVER KNOW, haha!!), so for me the clutch will be necessary.

    I carried the one my mom used on her wedding day…and it turned out to match my gold petticoat exactly.  But I didn’t need it at all.  Not even sure I ever opened it…just wanted it for the sentimental value…I never even had to reapply lipgloss.

    I’m thinking about getting one, but I am not sure yet. If I can’t find one for a reasonable price, I probably won’t get it. I will probably look around for one in a thrift shop or something, and I would use it, to keep touch up items in.

    hmmm never really thought about it… i’ll probably say no for now because we’re getting married at a private country club and FI’s uncle is the manager there. so i’m hoping he’ll let me use his office or somewhere similar for touch ups… or i could just go to his house (also located on the country club’s property)

    I did have a little clutch. It was given to me as a gift and I wouldn’t have bought one otherwise.. It didn’t really match my dress in the end, but I still would have used it except I forgot it at home… Totally didn’t even need it though.

    I bought one and was SOOO excited for it but, sigh, never used it. I took it in my "getting ready" suite with me and stuck some lipgloss and makeup for touchup and my cell phone and asked my Maid/Matron of Honor to take it to her car and bring it with her when we left. We stayed to take pictures longer than our bridal party so I didn’t spend time with my clutch at all!! So disappointing; my photographer got a picture (I THINK) at least… ๐Ÿ˜

    I won’t have a “bridal” clutch, but maybe something in one of my wedding colors… so I can use it over and over again.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am not getting one because it’s not necessary and it’ll just be one more thing for me to carry around and I know with so many things going on, I am sure I’ll lose it. lol Besides, my bridal suite is right upstairs at the venue so if I needed to touch up or anything, I’d just go upstairs anyway.

    gorgeous clutches posted!

    i had one to carry my cellphone, kleenex, oil blotting sheets, lipgloss etc. I didn’t have a bouquet so it was actually quite nice to have something to hold (I added a flag pin that went with our travel theme).

    my Maid/Matron of Honor carried a ‘bridal emergency’ kit with the full shebang (bobby pins, bandaids, aspirin etc). to me, it was unthinkable to be without the little essentials — i guess i’m too attached to my phone / gloss ๐Ÿ˜›
