Bridal Handbagsposted on 11 December 2009 | posted in Handbag and fashion Articles
If there's one day when you want to look your most beautiful, it's your wedding day. This is also a busy day and you will need to be organised and practical. You would probably like to carry a few essential items so you'll have them on-hand as you prepare for the reception or as you set off on your honeymoon. Bridal handbags can be both lovely and practical for this very purpose.
Bridal handbags or wedding purses, come in many stunning designs and a variety of sizes, with just enough room to carry those small personal items such as tissues, lipstick etc. After the wedding there are always photos and a reception to prepare for.
Types of Bridal Handbags
Bridal handbags are usually very small and easy to carry. They may be decorated with sequins, beads, crystals, lace, ribbons, miniature tassels, or precious stones. Wedding handbags are usually made of materials such as satin, silk, nylon, or polyester.
There are three basic styles of handbags for brides: clutch, fancy, and structured.
Clutch bridal purses - are typically made of silk or satin, have an inner lining, and do not have straps or handles.
Fancy handbags - are usually made with elegant designs embellished with precious stones, crystals, or beads. They also come with decorated handles made of metal or cloth with optional shoulder straps.
Structured wedding handbags - have a stable bottom and are usually made of satin, silk, nylon, or polyester. They also usually have handles and clasps made of metal.
Use your bridal bag to accentuate your wedding dress.
Bridal handbags are a great accessory for your wedding dress. Choose a bridal bag that matches or complements your dress, jewellery, tiara, and wedding shoes. The handbag should be made of the same or similar material as your dress and have similar patterns and designs. If your dress has lace and white pearls, then a wedding bag decorated with lace and white pearls or beads will be complementary.
Choose a bridal handbag that fits your style and your figure. The handbag should be easy to handle and not too large. It shouldn't stand out, but it should blend with your other attire. It should add a touch of elegance without dominating the reception photos.
Wedding handbags as bridesmaid gifts.
Wedding handbags can also be ordered to match the dresses of bridesmaids and given as gifts from the bride. Choose handbags that your bridesmaids can use for other occasions, not only at the wedding. Every girl loves a new handbag, so these make excellent gifts!
