You’ve got the wedding dress, the shoes, the veil, the jewelry—but what about the handbag? Yes, you’ll probably be carrying your bouquet more than your purse, at least during the ceremony, but how else will you keep your lipstick, phone, and Band-Aids for those killer heels nearby? Trust us, you’ll be thankful for this little godsend before and after you head down the aisle. Besides, a beaded gemstone clutch of white satin or embroidered floral bag embellished with crystals is so much more fashionable than a bouquet, anyway.

Bonus? This is a piece you’ll get your money’s worth long after the big day. It’s also the perfect way to exemplify your personal style or even your wedding style. Opt for a bow-shaped bag in dazzling stones to flaunt your feminine personality, a heart-shaped leather purse to show off your romantic side, or a simple envelope clutch to reflect your minimalist vibe. Try a glitzy silver acrylic bag for a beach wedding, a polished clutch in shimmering gold to complement your glam décor, or some fantastic fringe for 1920s-inspired nuptials. You can even consider your purse a way to add a pop of color to your canvas of white—a soft blush pink is classic and timeless, while a wristlet the color of the sky can serve as your something blue.

We also encourage you to get playful! Some of the more modern options are made just for you brides, with “Mrs.” or “Love” splashed across the front for a bit of whimsy. Bold, contemporary brides, they’re calling your name! But hey, there’s nothing wrong with the traditional either—that’s why we’ve included white lace and beaded confections.

From sequined clutches to metallic pouches, we’ve rounded up the prettiest, stylish options for every wedding style at every price point.
