It's All In The Bag

I received an email from one of my readers about what type of handbag she should carry on her wedding day. I know, I know brides don't walk down the aisle with a clutch under their arm or a hobo slung over the shoulder but there will times throughout the day when you need to have a place to put that white gift envelope filled with cash from your Aunt Stella. So, I've put together a few options that might work for you.

Here's a little Kate Spade. Love the double rings, very symbolic, yes?

This wedding dolly by Henry Kaye is ideal for holding your makeup for touch-ups during picture time.

For the fashion-forward bride, this clutch by Oscar de la Renta is perfection.

This demure clutch by Serenity Fair has a beautifully detailed clasp.

I love, love, love this foldover clutch by Dune. This is a handbag that will definitely be used long after the wedding is over. Perfect for sophisticated cocktail parties.

For the Indian bride or those whose wedding dress isn't the traditional white or ivory, this beaded bag is a gorgeous option.

Australian designer Susie Lema does wonderfully dainty beaded clutches. The floral design is breath-taking.

The truly avant garde will love this box clutch made of mother-of-pearl available at Via Vivre. This bag is a definite show piece, take a look at the oversized clasp.

When you want something fabulously extravagant and one-of-a-kind, take a cue from Eva Longoria, who has these snakeskin minaudieres custom made for her bridesmaids and herself from Rafe. They were even monogrammed with their initials on the back. Tres chic, dahling!
