Love a wedding wristlet but prefer the look of a clutch? Can’t decide which one to buy for your wedding? Don’t decide between the two… you can get both for the price of one! Today we’re showing you how it’s done thanks to the brilliant idea behind Keep Bags, the wedding wristlet and clutch purse in one handmade by Dana Cooper. Each Keep Bag features two removable bangles for wear as a wristlet; remove the bangles and your bag converts into a chic clutch style purse. And, since each of these Keep Bags is handmade, no one else’s will be quite like yours. So, if you’re on the hunt for a chic and stylish wedding wristlet bag, look no further: we’ve found a few we know you’ll love! Plus, we’re sharing a sweet story about a bride’s custom order in tribute to her mother. Read on for more…
Wedding Wristlet + Bag – Keep Bags
One of my favorites from the Keep Bags collection is this wedding wristlet with a modern lacy detail. The image above shows the bag when worn as a wristlet, and the image below shows the clutch (with bangles removed).
The next bag features appliques and is featured with a rose pink silk lining. (You can order custom linings in your favorite color, too!)
Check out this ‘lattice’ style wedding wristlet with a beautiful woven design.
Don’t leave the wristlet love to yourself: gift these bags to your bridesmaids, too! I adore this ‘twist’ style in gray…
… and this silver lattice pattern with organza.
And how about this black + white modern lacy design? Love. I might just need one of these just because.
You can customize your Keep Bag with style, silk lining color, or even add a custom monogram, which is stitched onto the inside of the bag.
Custom Order: How Something Old Became Something New
Dana shared this touching story with us about a wedding clutch she made as a custom order for a bride-to-be. Dana tells us, “The bride’s mother passed away a couple years ago and she sent me some of her mother’s old clothes and dresses. I made the bag from the lace of her mother sweater and used the dress she sent for a pretty blue lining. It was a very special order and turned ‘Something Old’ into ‘something new’.” Check out the photos below of the custom clutch:
