Wedding purses are vital accessories when it comes to completing a bride’s overall look. For brides, shopping for potential bridal purses are just as important a task as choosing the right jewelry.
Here are some tips you should consider when shopping for wedding handbags that will complement your wedding gown:
1. Let your wedding gown style determine the style of your wedding purse
Bridal purses should complement a wedding gown and not clash with it. Try to find a purse that is of the same fabric and is the same color as your gown. If your gown is custom made, then you may want to ask your wedding dress designer to create a matching purse for you.
2. Put thought into your purse’s overall design and look
When shopping for wedding purses, it is important to take your overall look into consideration. If your gown is very elaborate, then you should use a simple purse that does not steal attention away from your gown.
If, on the other hand, your dress is very simple in terms of design, then you may opt for an embellished or even whimsical looking bridal purse with elaborate details.
3. Choose a style that is both fashionable and functional
Similar to handbags, wedding purses come in many different styles. Before deciding between a bag with a drawstring pouch or a small, structured purse, imagine holding this bag throughout the ceremony and reception. Will your belongings fall out? Will this bag easily open?
4. Decide on the contents of your purse
As early as now, decide on the things you’d like to put inside your purse. You have very limited space, so you have to think about what you’d like to have with you on your wedding day.
Most bridal purses are used to keep the bride’s handkerchief or tissues, a piece of paper containing her wedding vows, a compact, lipstick, and perhaps a small mobile phone.
Follow these four tips when shopping for bridal purses, and you’ll find a purse that perfectly complements your wedding gown.
