32 Cute Bridesmaid Bags That Are Useful

by Emma Arendoski

Want bridesmaid bags that are useful for bridal party attendants? We’ll show you the latest collection everyone will love! But first, you are on the list, right? ;)

bridesmaid bags that are useful

If you’re looking for bridesmaid bags that are memorable, stylish, and functional, look no further than these useful bridesmaid bags for wedding day gifts.

Many brides make a teeny mistake when picking out bridesmaid tote bags, and it’s super-easy to fall into this trap. It goes like this: you find the cutest totes you can, as cheap as possible, and you skip personalization in lieu of “Bridesmaid” or “Maid of Honor” on the front of the bag.

Sure, it looks nice and all, but if you’re going for functionality, it won’t be your best bet.

Beau-coup Wedding Favors

If yours are labeled with titles vs. names, they won’t be bridesmaid bags that are useful after the wedding. Most people won’t really tote around a bag or carry an obvious ‘Bridesmaid’ bag afterward.

In addition, those cheap totes come with a price: the titles are typically made with a vinyl sticker that easily transfers or rubs off, so the quality isn’t quite there. You want bridesmaid bags that are useful, not the kind of totes that have temporary designs on the front. That’s no fun for anyone!

So, here’s the thing: look for quality. Focus on functionality. Instead of titles, look for bridesmaid bags that look like purses, weekend bags, or makeup bags that won’t break the bank and look cute — with free personalization included.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, we found ’em!

We found a stylish new collection of custom bridesmaid tote bags, makeup bags, weekender bags, toiletry bags, and more. These are bridesmaid bags that look like purses; they are the kind of carry-all totes she’ll actually use all year long.

You can choose a design that suits her unique style, add personalization to her bag for free, and choose from a variety of shapes and styles — and budgets! — from around $30. If you like, add bridesmaid bag stuffers or fillers like these to add a few more gifts; or, give them as-is because they’re cute + functional enough! :)

Bridesmaid bags that look like purses make great “be my bridesmaid” proposal gifts, too, as she can use them throughout your wedding planning to bring on dress-trying on adventures, to your bachelorette party weekend shenanigans, to use on the wedding day for her essentials, and so much more.

Let’s take a look!
