I say go for it.  I don’t think a bridal clutch is something that many will pay close attention to.  I never see them in wedding photos.

I will likely go with something simple like this.

I wouldn’t choose something with a logo on it; I think that’s going to stand out in pics and not in a good way. (You won’t be holding it in your formal posed pics, of course, but it might make its way into some of the candids.) I think a simple, pretty fabric or beaded clutch will look nice without taking any attention away from the more important parts of your look, like the dress, hair, and makeup.

I got a $15 one at Payless. Seriously minor detail that no one will notice. Don’t sweat it!

I looked at the very same YSL bag for my wedding and I thought it wasn’t bridal enough. However you will barely touch the purse you buy for your wedding so it doesn’t matter that much. They have another one with silver tone metal instead of  the dark gun metal, that is a bit more bridal. Either one is great post wedding for various outfits!

Personally, in the end I bought a blue velvet/crystals/blue stone Judith Leiber clutch and I have used it multiple times since my wedding, this weekend included:

Also I’ve gotten multiple use out of the feather bolero in the photo, I bought it for my wedding but didn’t use as it didn’t match my dress (it was too poofy because I had a ballgown wedding dress) but loved it too much to return it. It’s perfect with any slim fit dress!

Basically I’m an advocate of buying stuff you really love so you get use of it again! I’m just trying to work my wedding tiara into an outfit now ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Good luck with your clutch!

If you’re ceremony/reception are at the same place you don’t need one. The bridal suite at my location just had bags stuffed from the bridal party and I just hid my phone and beauty products there. 

If you have to change locations then yes, a little one is fine. I’d go for one of the fabulous Kate Spade ones if money wasn’t an object, they’re too precious (or JL is awesome like PP said). They won’t make it in anyone’s photos aside from your photographers- but you need to tell them that you want photos of it. I gave them mine but I bought it for “props” and then returned it!

Placed my “something blue” ring from my great grandmother on my purse for the day. Nobody will know that I didn’t keep it and it made for fun photos.

I didn’t carry a clutch…too much stuff to worry about. Just gave my family a little “emergency” bag to have nearby, but nobody saw it.

I didn’t think of having a clutch! My venue was a hotel, and all our stuff was up in the bridal suite. I don’t think blinging out is necessary. I like the one you have in your pic ๐Ÿ™‚

jolie2 :  I didn’t have a clutch because I didn’t have my phone or ID on me all day lol I didn’t care to have my phone as who could be so important to call me on my wedding day that wasn’t already there? Everyone else had phone # to people from my bridal party in case of emergency. I did have my regular bag in the bridal suite because that’s the one I wore to the rehearsal/nail salon the day before the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚
