Looking for a classic pearl clutch? We found ’em and they are g o r g e o u s. Get inspired and join our newsletter for the latest!
If you don’t have a clutch bag for your wedding yet, you need one! And not just because these today are stunning (they are) but because you need 1) to hold your stuff, and, 2) avoid lugging around your belongings in a plastic bag from Target on your wedding day.
Unless you are out here living in 2038 and wearing a wedding dress with pockets (I am surprised how many there really are) or you’ve already talked your MOH into carrying all her stuff AND yours in a gigantic tote bag, you’re going to need a bridal purse. I decided early on that I wanted to carry a few things close at hand, including lipstick, a compact mirror, identification, keys, cash and/or credit cards, a mint, extra hair pins, my cell phone, etc. You know, the wedding-day basics.
If you’re not sure what kind of bridal clutch to buy, here’s one that is always in style: the pearl clutch. A pearl clutch bag is one covered in pearls — real or faux, sometimes paired with beads and rhinestones or a bit of lace. I love the look of a classic pearl wedding purse. It looks great in your wedding day photos, makes a beautiful gift for yourself or a friend, and is something you can pass down someday (if you like). I carried my mom’s purse from her wedding and it was incredible; it is still one of my favorite memories of my wedding day.
A pearl clutch bag is a beautiful choice that goes with any gown. Since most pearl clutch purses are small in size, they’ll hold everything you need without adding unnecessary bulk.
To inspire you, we’ve rounded up seven pearl clutch bag options in a neat little bite-sized list so you can see the best bags we could find and not feel overwhelmed with too many options. There are several price points, from luxurious pearl purses to less expensive (yet just as lovely) clutch bags.
I hope you love the list as much as we enjoyed putting it together!
