A wedding day is a glitzy glam event not only for the bride but also for family and friends. We try to look our very best on a special day and preparations start off as soon as the announcement is made. To look your very best it is important to pay attention to detail, especially when it comes to matching the accessories with your outfit, like a handbag, which usually comes last to mind.
The perfect bag to carry at a wedding is a clutch purse and happens to be one of the ladies favorite. To choose the best one quickly, think of the colors of your dress and look for a clutch purse in a contrasting shade which compliments the attire. If you don’t want to be picky then go with any of the three universal shades which are gold, silver, and black. Clutch bags come in various styles like the classic, box, envelope and even transparent ones that have recently become popular. They’re decorated with diamantes, sequins, tassels, pearls and faux gemstones and are made from materials such as velvet and silk. Teenagers and young girls should choose heavily beaded ones with rounded corners while purses with a solid color exterior and tassel accent are great for mature ladies.

If you want to carry more stuff then go for a rectangular design flap (envelope) clutch. These usually come in bold colors and with large zippers. If you like to go hands-free then most clutch purses come with a detachable chain which you can hook onto the bag and wear it over your shoulder.
A suggested look is to carry a heavily decorated clutch purse (embroidered, sequined or pearled) and pair it with your dress, keeping the jewelry to a bare minimum, as it can serve as an accessory on its own. This look is also preferred by celebrities as they flaunt their style on the red carpet and special events.
