Which clutch for my bridesmaids?

Will they be carrying BOTH a bouquet and a clutch?  That seems a little hard to manage, since the clutches don’t have wrist straps?  I know it wasn’t your question, but I think you should choose one or the other; both seem a bit busy and hard to carry and hold gracefully.

I vote 4! If the bouquet are small I think carrying both will be manageable but not ideal tbh.

newbee90 :  Do you want them to all have the same clutch or different? Option 4 is gorgeous and if it’s between a couple of options 3 is the runner up.

P.s. you should make a poll for this thread. It would make it easier to see your results.

You can certainly give a clutch as a gift with no strings attached, and your bridesmaids may choose to make use of them, but you cannot properly require it. At that point it’s not really a gift. You only get the dress. 

If it was me, I’d go with something like option 3, but in silver. The others are too embellished for dresses that already have lots of beading and sequins.

1 or 2 are the most wearble and most likely that they would use again. 3 could work. If I got 4, I would be donating it to Goodwill right after the wedding.

I’m assuming these are a gift for your bridesmaids and not something you are requiring them to buy? I’d go with something simpler than any of the ones you’ve chosen because the dresses are so beaded and flashy.

#3 may work because it’s simpler but is it even to your bridesmaids taste? Are any of these?

#3 is the only one that works for me. A beaded, embellished bag with a sequin or beaded dress is too much.

newbee90 :  if you must, go simple, like the first, the dresses have enough going on. The fourth is absolutely awful, sorry.  But honestly I feel like clutches in general are a bit of a waste. What do they do with them when they are holding other things? Just dump them on a table? Then why not use whatever purse instead? Are they the sort who would use a clutch ever again?  I’ve got one rotting away in my closet from a wedding 13 years ago. I think it held a lip gloss I could have easily had my boyfriend hang onto.

#3 is gorgeous. The rest are nice, but just too busy with the dress.
