What to put in your purse on your wed­ding day Chan­fash­ion tell right now!

Bride’s handbag: which one?

Each acces­so­ry of the bride must be care­ful­ly select­ed and ful­fill its role: either to set off the beau­ty of a holis­tic image, or to be a bright accent of the cre­at­ed bow. You can often see a bride with­out a purse at all. Decide for your­self what is more con­ve­nient for you per­son­al­ly — to wear a small retic­ule all day and have your favorite mir­ror, lip gloss and per­fume sam­pler on hand, or not to puz­zle your­self with the choice of a hand­bag, and entrust all the nec­es­sary things to your girl­friend, but not let her go a sin­gle step .

The range of hand­bags is huge, they are very, very dif­fer­ent, their types dif­fer in both mate­r­i­al and size, for exam­ple:

  • from leather, leatherette, vel­vet, suede, from open­work fab­ric or fur;
  • very small that fit in the palm of your hand, medi­um-sized or large;
  • with long han­dles to be thrown over the shoul­der, or worn on the wrist and elbow;
  • fes­tive options for the wed­ding day and only, or more ver­sa­tile to wear after in every­day life;
  • fab­ric, light, almost weight­less, or dec­o­rat­ed with pre­cious stones and met­als.

Styl­ists have a thou­sand and one rules on how to choose an acces­so­ry for dif­fer­ent styles of out­fit. And we advise you to focus on your own feel­ings. Com­fort­able? Beau­ti­ful? Does it fit the essen­tials? So you’ve found it, your per­fect bridal bag! But with­out a cou­ple of tips from Chan­fash­ion Of course, we won’t leave you!

1 The col­or palette of the wed­ding bag should either be in har­mo­ny with the tone of the dress, or be a bright con­trast­ing accent of the image.

2 Hav­ing cho­sen a lace, open­work dress, do not buy a hand­bag with a chain — you will con­stant­ly need to make sure that the chain does not cling and does not tight­en on the out­fit.

3 Your hand­bag should not be big and heavy — you are not a loader to “car­ry” weight, and even 12 hours, at least.

4 Let the han­dle of the acces­so­ry be small, com­fort­able, which fits eas­i­ly into the hand.

5 If it is not pos­si­ble to buy a new hand­bag or make it your­self, you can rent it at the bridal salon.

What to put in the bride’s handbag

Of course, the most nec­es­sary and impor­tant things. Which, per­haps, will not be use­ful, but their mere pres­ence in your purse will pro­vide you with peace of mind and con­fi­dence that no force majeure will ruin your most beau­ti­ful day!

Lip gloss or lip­stick

Band-aid (Even if you and your fiancé start­ed break­ing in your wed­ding shoes a few days before the wed­ding, be safe and don’t think about blis­ters on your hap­py day!)

Spir­it sam­pler

Gum or mints (And it’s not just about fresh breath, mints are great for when you get frus­trat­ed in city traf­fic.)

Hair clip or hair­pin

For force majeure cas­es

Nee­dle, thread, pin

Nail scis­sors

Tablet for headache and toothache
