So one thing many brides don’t think about is which hand bag they should have and buy and carry to match their purse or suit or gown for the evening. Purse sounds weird there, but you also have your clutch inside your purse if you decide to carry a purse instead of a clutch which I am 100% opposed to. You should only carry a clutch so that you can take your essentials, make up for repairs, a snack or candy bar for an energy boost, and contact solution in case your eyes dry out. Maybe a tampon or something incase your other aunt flo decides to visit during your big day….visitors really can be a pain sometimes…ok enough with the period jokes….
Anyways, choosing your clutch or hand back to match your outfit should actually be very easy. Just follow these simple things and you’ll be able to find the perfect hand bag to match your gown and your big day and not have to have it be in the way.

Things to remember when buying a hand bag for your wedding.
Match it to your dress. If your dress has pearly and ribbons, don’t get a bag covered in sequins and beads…you don’t want your hand bag to take away from your dress or your outfit. However, if you do go with beads or sequins like this, do it so that it shows off your new rings and make sure you always have it under your ring to really show it off when you are holding it.
Make it age appropriate. This is a wedding, not a night out clubbing. If you are over 30, get ribbons and something elegant. If you are in your twenties, go for something shaped modern and kind of hip. You can also get away with some oversized or undersized bags,,,just make sure you have enough room for only the essentials. If you are in your 40s. Get something that looks right for a woman who is just starting to really get to experience life and a new life with more experience and class and love. More curved bags and beads instead of squared bags can be perfect. If you like squared bags, try to avoid actual squares and get something rectangular and with satin ribbons or very gorgoues materials that match your dress. 50s and up. Hunny you can have the most fun. Go far sequins, beads, satin and everything else you could ever want. You want everyone to know that even though you are 60+ and getting married you can go like the rest of them and your bag should represent that even though you have reached 60 years old and more….your life is just begining and you are still young. Heck your new life is just starting so find a bag that is fun, and full of life, just like you and your new marriage.
Make sure it is not too big. You want it to be just big enough to hold all of your make up and things to help fix your face or your contacts, as well as any personal items that you may need during your big day. I would also recommend hand sanitzer in it because you have to shake a million hands and that is gross before you try to eat. Also, you don’t want your purse to be huge and take away from your gown or expecially your ring. Buy one that is small enough to blend in and can also be used to show off your wedding ring since you’ll never have a better venue for it….besides high school and family reunions.
