Hi, loves! Emma here. Do you love bridesmaid bags / makeup clutches / tote bags like I do? I’m always looking for the latest bridesmaid gifts on Etsy and one of my favorite items are bridesmaid clutches and bags. I’m currently obsessing over these ultra-luxe vegan suede bridesmaid bags from designer Sandra Smith, and I couldn’t wait to share them with you because I knew you’d like them, too. These have to be the first bridesmaid bags I’ve found that are stylish enough for a wedding yet neutral enough to be carried again and again. Just check out the gorgeous suede, gold lettering, and the tassels! You can even have colorful liners inside.
Anyway, I’ve done some research and I’m telling you everything you need to know about bridesmaid bags as gifts, along with where to snag a set of your own. Read on for more…
Bridesmaid Bags / Bridesmaid Makeup Bags for the Wedding Party
Since we’ve had a few questions on the topic of bridesmaid makeup bags, tote bags, and bridesmaid clutches, I thought I’d share a few reasons why bags are such a good gift idea for your bridesmaids.
o Essential — Bridesmaids need to hold essentials with them during the day, yet might not want to lug around a large purse
o Functional — Bags can be reused for years to come: carry on special occasions, keep as a place for storing jewelry or keepsakes, or use as a makeup bag or bag inside your suitcase for travel
o Handmade — Handmade gifts are well-received and appreciated; they’re totally one-of-a-kind and she won’t already own one
o Personalized — Who doesn’t love a gift with your name on it?!
Also, you don’t have to put any gifts inside, but it’s sometimes fun to add little surprises inside. Examples include a pair of earrings, a gift card to her favorite store (or coffee shop), birthstone jewelry, anything! Get creative. It doesn’t have to cost a lot, it simply has to come from the heart.
Okay, now back to these ridiculously cute bridesmaid bags. These bags measure 9 x 6 inches and are completely handmade by Sandra in her New York studio. She uses high-quality materials, like black vegan suede and designer cotton lining.
This bag closes with a brass metal zipper and is lightly padded. Since Sandra wants your bridesmaid bags to last, they are double-stitched for lasting quality.
There are other colors and styles to choose from in her shop, so stop listening to me and head over there already! I love so many pieces in her collection; it’s hard to pick a favorite, but this bag is definitely at the top of my list!
