Gallery: Bridal handbags for keeping that essential make-up in

By Andrea Petrou on January 29th, 2010 2 comments

We know many brides are unsure about whether or not to carry a bag with them on the big day, after all they won’t need their mobile phones as many of their friends and family will be there.
Then there’s the worry about what to do with it when your taking your vows.

Although its not by any means a tradition to carry a bag, they do come in handy for keeping make up in, and they can be easily passed to your bridesmaid or maid of honour when you’re at the ceremony.

If you like the idea of one then make sure you pick one that matches the shade of your dress. If you can get an exact match you can also customise it by adding sparkles, feathers or beading to detract from the slight colour mismatch.

We’ve put together a gallery of bags to help you.

    Traditionaly, the Mother of the Bride has the task of carrying anything that the bride needs.
    Either that or a friend who isn’t in the Bridal party, should have tissues, pins, perfume etc to hand.

    A Handy kind of bag is fit to this kind of event. You don’t need to bring or carry a bag in a wedding ceremony, just choose a handy bag where you can put your make up and cellphones. I like the bags,it is simple but elegant.
