Handbag/Purse for the Wedding Day?

Recommended Posts

So I've resumed my search for a smallish clutch for the wedding day. Well, I've been keeping my eyes open, but I also set up a search on eBay. Here are a couple I am "watching" - what do you think? I know the colors look off - but I am assuming/hoping it's just the pictures!

The reason I picked #1 is cuz it seemed to match my dress a little w/the lace overlay:

Ann --

 

I really like the first one, assuming it really isn't green. The top almost looks like the one from macy's but minus the lace - La Regala Satin Clucth.

 

Macy*s - Women's - Shoes & Accessories - Handbags - Evening Bags

 

I would go to the DT Macy's they usually have alot to choose from, from simple clucths to cute jeweled clucthes in the shape of things like ladybugs, animals, etc..... I'm assuming they still carry them after the Marshal Fields merger. The're on the bottom floor.

 

Good Luck!

Here are the links on eBay to see the descriptions. They both say ivory! Though the beaded one says a "peachy" color - which I don't want.

 

eBay: VINTAGE IVORY SATIN LACE BRIDAL EVENING BAG HANDBAGS (item 250091434150 end time Mar-13-07 02:23:05 PDT)

 

eBay: BEADED VINTAGE PURSE, CLUTCH, SWIRLS OF PEACH PEARLS (item 170088346064 end time Mar-12-07 21:52:19 PDT)

I love the first one and even if its a little green it will be okay since you have green as a wedding color and it would be nice to add a little bit of color into the day...more festive

i vote for one. I think lace looks nicer than beads most of the time - it just has an antique/romantic feel. Plus I think lace looks better with your dress.

I think it may be much... BUT.. I doubt you'll be carrying your purse around so I don't think it matters too much..

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
