In some of the posts where I speak about my own wedding on this site, you may have deduced that as much as I love fashion, I was fairly uncomplicated when it came to my own wedding attire. My style was pretty classic and understated -- which was what I was going for-- but when I look back I sometimes feel I was a little too low-key.
For instance, I would have worn some bigger stand-out jewelry, a pretty hair accessory, and I would have definitely carried a bridal clutch. Not having a bridal clutch was not only a missed style opportunity, but it was also inconvenient not to have a little pretty bag by my side for lipstick touch-ups throughout the day. A bridal clutch isn't just pretty place to stow things, it gives a more put-together style to your wedding day look. I've compiled a few of my favorites for every style of bride and every kind of wedding.

You may think you don't need a bridal purse, but trust me -- it's so nice to have an elegant place to store your lipstick, hairpins, compact, mints, and tissues that can sit neatly next to you or in your hand. A place that is not a giant tote-bag that you hauled with you and left in the getting ready room, that you awkwardly rummaged through on quick trips back to the room to touch up your makeup. (i.e., exactly what I did.) Here's a little more detailed view of these beauties and some thoughts on which clutches I'd pick for each wedding style. (Note: because of the date of the post, most styles have sold out. Here are some new clutches we love!)
