The wedding dress may be the show stopping centrepiece that every one of your guests will be looking forward to seeing. But without the right accessories, the most stunning gown can fall flat.
As well as shoes and hair accessories, bridal bags have become must-haves in recent years. Keeping your wedding day essentials to hand is vital, and a stylish bridal bag that compliments the entire ensemble is a great way to go.
The clutch design is an excellent option for brides looking for style and storage in one. Here, we take a closer look at the benefits of investing in a bridal clutch for your wedding day and reveal the tips that will help you find the most elegant design for your wedding style and budget.
Why go for a clutch?
A clutch bag offers an understated and elegant design that is favoured by contemporary women for special occasions – and there’s no occasion more special than your wedding day!
Unlike other bag designs, the clutch is quite minimalistic. Brides can therefore carry less baggage around on their special day as well as keep handbag clutter to a minimum. The lines and style of your wedding dress will also remain undisturbed by your choice of bag.
The clutch bag is easier and more comfortable to carry than alternate bag designs too. Your shoulder, neck, and back will be given the break they deserve to ensure you feel comfortable throughout your wedding day.
How can I choose the perfect clutch?
There’s so many great clutch styles out there, which means the possibilities are endless when sourcing a clutch bag that complements your bridal ensemble.
This can also make choosing the perfect bridal clutch rather challenging. However, it is important to remember that you don’t need to select a clutch design that matches your wedding dress.
Instead opt for a design that complements the style and tone of your gown. The colour could even give a nod to themes of your wider wedding, complement the season or match the groom’s accent colour.
Many wedding dress designers provide complementary accessories, including bridal bags, alongside their bridal wear collections so be sure to check those out for inspiration.
What’s the most popular style for brides?
There are a number of designs available but those wanting to keep things timeless should consider the envelope clutch. Here The Dessy Group reveals more about the benefits of choosing the envelope style:
“Modern yet timeless, the envelope clutch is the ultimate day-to-night bag. This wedding clutch style is perfect for brides who need something big enough to fit all their must-have wedding day essentials (mascara, breath mints, etc.) without overshadowing their gorgeous dress. Another reason to invest in an envelope clutch is that you can use it long after your big day. Pick an envelope clutch in a neutral hue such as grey or beige and you now have a handbag that will effortlessly dress up casual outfits and put a polished spin on your office attire.”
Choose a clutch that compliments your personality as well as your wedding style, and remember it’s an accessory that can, and should, be used long after you tie the knot. Clutches aren’t just for weddings and party season – here’s why.
