We all know the wedding dress is the most important piece of the fashion puzzle for a bride-to-be, but accessories are a crucial part of every bridal look. Whether you’re a traditional, modern, bohemian, or city hall bride, a stylish handbag is a useful accessory to have on hand and one that’s easily overlooked when shoes, jewelry and hair accessories or a veil can feel like a bigger area of focus. Even if you haven’t found the dress yet, a bridal bag is a stunning way to bring your engagement party, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner look to life and the latest handbag trends are a stylish way to narrow in on your perfect style.
Elegant clutches, cross-body bags, and wristlets are ever popular in the bridal world from metallic fabrics to intricate beading and rhinestone detailing. We love these classic options for every type of bridal style, but if you’re looking to veer into fashion-forward territory, something inspired by new-season trends may spark your interest.
Vintage-inspired bags are having a major moment this season from styles decked in pearls to flapper fringe and hard-case box bags. Sophisticated and playful, silhouettes from drawstring pouches to modern wristlets and clutches feel perfectly bridal whether you’re for something in cream or white, a metallic hue, or maybe even colored for your something blue. For a little more texture, brocade fabrics, sumptuous velvet, and patent leather make for an impactful bridal moment—geometric shapes and pared-back designs give these mainstay textures trends new life for a modern bridal aesthetic.
Whether you’re shopping for a single bridal bag for your wedding day or a few to pair with your engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and after party looks, ahead, shop the edit of fresh handbags trends for every style and budget.
