I went to a wedding recently where the bridesmaids carried beautiful clutches down the aisle instead of flowers. It was so cute and such a great idea! The clutches were a gift from the bride and acted as the bridesmaids' bouquets. How smart is that?!
To top it off, the bride carried a matching wedding bridal clutch she got for herself during the wedding reception. There were so many complements from her wedding guests that I knew I had to pass this great idea on to you in today's Garter Girl Loves.
I love the idea of gifting those most important to you a functional and beautiful wedding party gift they will use again after your wedding. I never buy myself purses and clutches for formal events, so I love when a bride thinks to do that shopping for me as a bridesmaid gift!
I've pulled together a beautiful set of bridal wedding clutches from Etsy for you to check out in today's Garter Girl Loves. Not only are these great wedding gifts for a bridal party or mother-of-the-brides or mother-of-the-grooms, they are perfect for the bride to carry her wedding day necessities in - a tissue, lipstick, or even wedding vows.
(Side note worth of mentioning: I was just bridal dress shop today and overhead the dress consultant tell the bride that she is NOT allowed to put her wedding day lipstick in the pockets of her wedding dress! Lipstick for the bride goes in her clutch or the purse of a bridesmaid. Got it!?)
