Wedding season is upon us! Since I grew up in Florida, I didn’t realize how big a deal wedding season was for those living in more temperate climates. There’s a true wedding season outside of the tropics, though, and it is just about to begin. Every bride has her own style and own ideas for the perfect wedding; some prefer a fairytale, some want an outrageous event and others simply want something traditional.
The wedding dress tends to be the most important aspect of every bride’s wardrobe followed closely by her shoes, but I don’t want any bride to forget the importance of a chic handbag. I carried my Hermes Kelly Longue on my wedding day and used it in many of our wedding photos in place of flowers. (Yes, I am that obsessed with bags.)
If you consider your style more traditional, here are nine amazing wedding options for you!
Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Satin Knot Clutch | $1,380 via Net-A-Porter
Completely and totally classic, the Knot Clutch is a beauty. I have never been able to find anything wrong with this bag and I never will, as it is every bit of perfect possible.
Salvatore Ferragamo W Gancini Clutch | $1,190 via Neiman Marcus
Ferragamo is ubiquitous with luxury and should be, this clutch proves it. The lines are clean and sleek and the design is stunning, everything a wedding day clutch should possess.
Jimmy Choo Glittered Flap Clutch | $695 via Neiman Marcus
I like the idea of adding a little sparkle to your get-up and this clutch does just that without going overboard. This is perfect for the girl who wants to shine but not be distracting.
VBH Manila Stretch Sparkle Clutch | $1,100 via Neiman Marcus
Another glitter option in a structured clutch design, the VBH clutch looks like an envelope but is also practical. If your dress is utterly simple, you can add a clutch like this to offset your look.
Judith Leiber Cake Clutch | $6,695 via Neiman Marcus
Looking for crystal bling and a cake you can have with you at all times but won’t make your dress tighter? Judith Leiber never leaves anyone out, and that includes the bride.
Tory Burch Logo Clutch | $325 via ShopBop
I’m not one for logos but I adore the idea of the bride with her name starting with “T” or her new last name ending with “T” to carry this on her big day.
Nancy Gonzalez Metallic Crocodile Trapezoid Clutch | $995 via Neiman Marcus
You can never talk about an important event and leave out Nancy Gonzalez. Everything about this clutch is perfect for the classic bride, from the trapezoid shape to the slightly metallic crocodile skin.
Diane von Furstenberg Tonda Raffia Clutch | $345 via ShopBop
Go beachy-modern with this long East/West clutch from DvF. So many share their nuptials on the beach and you can match your topical wedding with a tropical raffia clutch.
CLARE VIVIER Fold Over Clutch | $150 via ShopBop
If you are more laid-back with your style, a fold over clutch may be just what you need. This design says “I’m totally cool but I still care about my style”.
