A Nice Purse Can Really Compliment Your Wedding Dress

Posted by DÉSEO Bridal & Evening on

When you’re planning your special day, you need to complete a checklist of everything from the right dress to the shoes to accessories to the hairstyle. One question many brides ask is if it’s a good idea for them to carry a purse for your wedding or not. The short answer is yes! The right purse can really compliment your wedding dress. Not to mention, you can store some quick-access essentials like mints and sanitizer in it.



Read on as we look at some of the different types of clutch purses that work beautifully with bridal dresses:


  1. The Classic Clutch

If you have a very intricate and extravagant dress, a plain clutch will work well with it. The base colour of the dress should match the colour of the purse and you’re good to go.


  1. The Glitter Burst

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle? It’s your wedding day and you can go as big as you want. A glittery clutch purse looks especially great with a wedding dress that’s on the lighter side.


  1. A Hint of Gold

Silver and white aren’t the only colours for wedding purses. A gold clutch can add a touch of elegance and extravagance to your bridal look. It will look even prettier if your dress has gold work on it or you’re wearing gold jewellery.


  1. The Perfect Shade of White

No matter which purse you select, make sure it works well with your bridal gown. Don’t try matching an ivory gown with a crème coloured purse!


  1. The Silver Clutch

Not all shades of white are easy to match. If the shade of your dress is somewhat unique and you can’t find a purse to complement it, get a little creative. A silver clutch will not only complement the white dress, but it’ll add its own shimmering charm to your look.


  1. The Ornate Clutch

Many brides look for ornate wedding dresses with intricate embroidery, lacework, and sequins. You can match the work on your dress with your purse. A dress with a floral design can be paired with a floral embroidered clutch to create a stunning, cohesive look.

Which Wedding Purse is Right for You?

The purse you select depends on the dress you’ve picked out for your wedding. If you’re aiming for a very classic, traditional wedding, a simple ivory or crème clutch will do the trick. If your wedding is Hollywood glamorous, spring for something sparkly or sequined. If your wedding is more avant-garde and modern, look for a unique clutch, such as a sea-shell shaped one or some other funky designs to match your unique bridal style.
