Selecting a bridal clutch is often the final item on a bride's wedding attire checklist, but this small accessory has the power to pull your entire look together. Pearl-like embellishments are polished and refined, perfect for classic brides. For a more contemporary vibe, look for unusual shapes and graphic patterns. Dazzling metallic styles fit right in at a glamorous affair.
Now is a good time to invest in a high-quality bag that you can wear long after your wedding day has come and passed. For a one-of-a-kind style, customize your bag with your nickname, new last name, or wedding initials. Add a pop of color to your ensemble with a “something blue” purse, or have a friend or relative loan a vintage clutch to you as your “something borrowed.”
