The bridal clutch purse is an essential accessory for your wedding day. That is, of course, unless you are a bride who found the perfect gown with pockets. My gown did not have pockets; instead, I had the privilege of carrying my mother’s clutch purse from her wedding day. It was a gorgeous, handmade ivory clutch with beading, delicate lace and the softest silk satin. It was my ‘something borrowed’, a gift my grandmother presented to my mother on her wedding day.
The bridal clutch is more than just a fashion accessory – it’s an emergency kit. Let’s say you have a superwoman maid of honor who carries a rescue kit with the day’s essentials. That’s terrific, but sometimes you need something and you need it now. For instance, perhaps you want to freshen your breath after dinner before chatting with guests. Avoid the whole ‘how’s-my-breath’ smell test scenario (it’s not charming); just grab a mint and gab away! Your clutch purse will carry all your must-haves, just in case. ;)
Sara of Cady Briar is an Emmaline Bride artisan (featured in the marketplace!) with a flair for fashion. She is savvy with satin, silk and all things lace and can design the perfect custom clutch for you. One of our favorite features of a Cady Briar clutch is the customization factor. For instance, say you wanted to buy clutches for your entire bridal party as a gift. She can embroider the initials of each bridesmaid, as well as change the lining color to match the dress (or the bridesmaid’s favorite color).
* Brides: Want to add a subtle ‘something blue’? The clutch purse lining is a perfect disguise. Besides, not every bride wants to wear a blue garter, blue underpants, or a pair of blue earrings. We get it.)
