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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
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.
