Why You Need A Bridal Handbag And Tote Bag

If you're the type of gal who doesn't have a purse then you're probably not worried about something as silly as a bridal handbag or a bridal tote bag. You will be making a big mistake. On your wedding day these are two accessories that perform very specific functions. And without them you're going to be in big trouble!

Bridal handbags are typically small, clutch-size purses. They're dainty and elegant, and because they're usually frilly and white you'll probably never use them again. But they're important and they do serve a purpose: Your bridal handbag is where you carry your lipstick, an aspirin...and all the money you get for wedding gifts!

Think about it - there are no pockets in a wedding gown and as soon as the reception starts people are going to start handing you checks and cards filled with cash. You certainly don't want to just leave it lying around on a table.

Why do you need a bridal tote bag?

Think of it as your emergency kit and start stocking it now. Carry extra stockings, a needle and thread, Band-Aids, aspirin, deodorant, toothpaste and a toothbrush, nail polish, your wedding makeup - and anything else you can think of that might come in handy.

You can find wedding checklists online that give you more details about what you should pack in your bridal tote bag. The point is - you need one. And don't wait too long to get it!

Choosing the Best Bridal Handbag

Matching the Bridal Handbag

Of course the most important consideration when choosing your bridal handbag is appearance. You spent all that time choosing the perfect dress and the perfect jewelry, you should put just as much thought into your handbag.

What Will You Need the Bag For?

Personal Preference on How to Wear the Wedding Bag

Then it becomes a matter of personal preference. Must clutch bags don't have a handle or strap and if they do they're usually very delicate. If you prefer a bag with a handle, make sure it's one you can slip over your arm. An even better choice might be a bag with a wrist strap so you don't have to worry about getting separated from you lipstick.

      I'm planning my 31st anniversary, but I still love these bridal handbags and totes. I'd choose a monogram tote, i think, and I love, love, love the handbag in your intro!
