Is it a cute, elegant or inappropriate look for the bride, mother of bride, or mother of groom to hold a small glittery evening bag down aisle (either holding straps or as a clutch)? I have seen this done with a vintage bag and it looked great.

@momme: I have seen this on offbeat bride several times and it looked really nice 🙂 there is a trend with gals finding things to carry that are not flowers 🙂

Can you post a pic of what you are thinking? My initial reaction was “No. Why would anyone need a bag? You probably wont be touching up lipstick at the alter.” But I think it could be cute if it really was just a statement accessory or something!

@momme: @Mrs Canuck: Yeah…that looks crazy (it looks like she’s carrying a centerpiece down the aisle). Maybe it’d look better with just the bag?

@momme: Hmmm…I think no. It seems a little weird for the bride to wear one while she’s walking down the aisle. It’s not like you need it for anything.

Why is “not cute” not an option in the poll? I guess if I’m limited to the poll choices, I’d say it would be fine for the MOB and MOG to carry a clutch down the aisle. I don’t like the idea of a bride doing that because it’s distracting and strange.

IMO, for the Bride it depends on the Bag, look of the Wedding, and if there will be flowers involved.
LOVE for example the photo posted by @Mrs Canuck: above
As for the MOB & MOG… dressed to the nines including a Glittery Evening Bag… is always appropriate.
Let those Ladies ROCK the day !!
So for now… I’ve VOTED for Option # 1 AND # 2
Hope this helps,

I’m generally into offbeat, but I don’t love this idea. Overall, I think it’s a little clunky looking. I usually see the moms being walked down the aisle by someone else, so one of their arms/hands are already occupied so I don’t think it’s necessary to occupy the other hand too, especially if there’s a wrist corsage. I also don’t love the idea of a bride carrying the bag because it kind of looks like “Oops, I forgot to put this down” rather than “I’m uniquely awesome!”

@MissWitty: I saw this look on the website Style Me Pretty. The Mother of the Bride wore a pink evening gown and it looked like a beaded pink small purse bag (looked vintage) with a chain. She was holding it with on hand by the chain. I thought it looked really good and unique.

@momme: Oh that sounds cute! Especially since MOB likely wouldnt have a bouquet and it would give her something to carry 🙂 But I definitely think it would be easier to pull off for a MOB/MOG than the Bride.

I personnaly didn’t want to hold ANYTHING as a bride on my wedding day, haha! I didn’t want a bouquet, as I find brides seem to be bothered by holding it. They are often giving it to someone else to hold during the ceremony or for hugging someone, or having a glass of champagne, etc.
I used a belt with a large flower feature, and was hands-free. I also didn’t walk down the aisle. I was there in public from the beginning with my husband-to-be at the time. We had a cocktail hour with rose wine before starting the ceremony, to allow for all guests to arrive at our country farm location. We called all guests to their seats and were already at the front.

i think it’s kind of strange in general

@momme: I think the concept is a little strange, only because a bag is an accessory that is traditionally used to HOLD things, and really, what would you need to put in it? MOB or MOG maybe, because they could have some tissues in there 😉 but I’m not sure that I love the idea for the bride.
