Bridal party carrying clutches instead of bouquets – this was something I’d never seen before coming on WB. Can someone explain it to me? Do they carry them as they would a bouquet, or do they do the one-handed down on their side thing like you would carry a clutch IRL. And is there things in the clutches while they walk down the aisle (like cell phones, makeup, stuff like that) or are they just for show purposes?
I think it’s a cute idea. I just don’t quite understand the whole thing 🙂

I have never seen this, but I would picture them holding it either in front with both hands on top of the clutch (horizontally), or holding the clutch in one hand tucked close to the body. If anyone has pictures of a bridal party doing this I would love to see it!

I agree, I’d love to see photos and hear more about the ‘logistics’ of carrying the clutch/how they stand during the ceremony, etc. I’ve seriously considered doing clutches for the bridesmaids and unifying them all with a cute brooch (since I’m doing a brooch bouquet), but photos would sure help convince my mom and Mr.ND. 🙂

I am doing bridesmaid clutches instead of flowers. I plan on having the Bridesmaid or Best Man walk down the aisle on the arm of a Groomsmen, and the clutch craddled in the opposite hand, sort of like in the last picture. That way its not as awkward as them holding a clutch with both hands infront of them.
I also found this pic while looking:
But it looks less intentional done this way, guests might think that they just forgot to put down their bags.

There’s a lot of beautiful clutches to choose, in my opinion, clutches would be much cheaper and utility than boutique. But due to the tradition the bride should use a boutique at first, but to the bridesmaid, clutch seems much more convenient and they don’t need to find their lipsticks wvweywhere when they need lol~~ I really like this one, it’s gorgeous:

Gingersnap: the clutch bag idea comes from the 1950s. I suspect that the bride wouldn’t be carrying a cell phone but rather have objects in the bag that mean something to both herself and her husband to be such as keepsakes I.e. First rose she was given by him etc. I still have these type of keepsakes.
carrying flowers down down the aisle is an old tradition which comes from the bride trying to disguise bad smells coming from the groom as people didn’t bathe every day.
i hope this helps.
