So I’ve decided to get my bridesmaids (4) clutches from this site (http://www.etsy.com/shop/DavieandChiyo?ref=top_trail) for their bridesmaid gifts, but I’m having a hard time pulling the trigger. I can’t decide what color purse to order! My wedding colors are hot pink and maroon, with green and silver accents.
This is the purse I’m going to get (can customize colors):
But I can’t decide whether to go with this color:
Or this (sorry for small pic, it’s the one in the front):
It seems like silver would be more versatile and reusable, but I almost feel like you could get a silver clutch anywhere; I want it to be special. I looove the pink color, and know that my bridesmaids like pink as well, but I don’t want to get them something they’ll never use.
What color do you prefer? What do you think the best choice is?
(Unfortch, not getting any of the cute add-ons like bows, flowers … budget won’t allow.)

I like the pink one hate the bow on it though.

I voted for silver because it’s a clutch that will be easy to match with other outfits.

Just being honest, I wouldn’t probably use the hot pink one because I don’t have any outfits in my closet I could use it with. The silver one is much more versatile!

I love color, especially in gifts since I usually buy myself more neutral colors because, as you said, they’re more versatile. So I’d love to receive the pink clutch.

I really think that you should go for versatile, if you want them to use it again. Silver would be the most versatile and would probably satisfy a variety of tastes (*I* love me a hot pink clutch, but I’m in the minority, I think). Having said that, the pink clutch in the pic with the three different ones is a pretty innocuous pale pink and edges it towards neutral, so if you like that pink, go for pink.
But I agree with PP–plain is good. A bow or flower is pushing it.

I agree with mandb122 — I buy myself neutrals because they’re versatile and practical. For a gift, I’d love a hot pink clutch — it’s special and something I wouldn’t get myself. And if you know they like pink, then all the better!

I vote for the silver because you can probably reuse it. Now if you BMs have a lot of pink, black or silver/grey stuff in their wardrobes the hot pink is still plenty useful. It would be super hot with a little black dress. I’d pay a little extra close attention to the colors they usually wear to make a decision.

I like the silver color better but if I had the choice I would LOVE one of the last clutches you showed. I know that wasn’t one of the options but still. They are too cute and not something I could get anywhere!

I’m picking the light pink or gold maybe. I think the hot pink is a bit too specific, and I wouldn’t really use it. But you can get something a little more exciting than silver. Like some of the colors in the first picture.

@Miss OBG: So you don’t think it needs to be in a color related to the wedding at all then … interesting. Gah, now there’s way more colors to think about! *headdesk*

I like the hot pink. I think its fun and something they can use on nights out for a fun striking clutch!
