Hi, loves! Meet the newest trend in bridesmaid gift-giving: mismatched clutches. Giving clutch purses to bridesmaids as a thank you gift isn’t a new idea, but we love this fresh approach. Instead of picking the same clutch to give to each bridesmaid, consider mismatched clutches instead: it allows you to pick a unique pattern or print that suits her unique style while tying in your color palette for a cohesive look. Ready to find out more? Read on to see a few hand-picked finds we spotted over at BagEnvy Handbags which exemplifies this trend perfectly.

One of the most popular bridesmaid gift ideas is a clutch purse. It can hold her essentials on the wedding day — and beyond. Not all clutch purses are created the same, though, and today we’re sharing a unique twist on the traditional purse. We’ve been loving the collection of personalized bridesmaid clutches at Mama Bleu Designs, which we consider to be little works of art. Each bag is lovingly handmade + embroidered with her name (or monogram) on the front, along with your choice of poppy patterned fabric or colors. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite personalized bridesmaid clutches from the collection including a new black and white style. Read on to see the clutches up close… and tell us: which one is your favorite?

Hello, loves! Today we’re talking about bridesmaid gift giving. As everyone knows, no two bridesmaids are the same. When my sister planned her wedding, she hand-selected each detail from the handmade cake topper she crafted with her friend right down to the bridesmaid gifts. To top it off, she hand-picked each member of her bridal party something different because she knew we each possess a unique style. Today we’re inspiring you to take Elise’s advice. As with all great gifts, it’s the thought that counts. You only get one chance at giving a bridesmaid gift and today we’re helping you to make it great. We’ll show you why to give a gift, why hand-selecting each bridesmaid gift is important, the bridesmaid gift to avoid, when to give the gifts, and more. Read on for the rules…
