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.
styles wedding bags:
- Bag-purse, long handle, most often, on a chain
- wedding clutch
- Bucket bag with drawstrings or lock — latch
- Bag envelope
- Pouch bag
- Flower bag (silk, organza, satin)
- Reticule bag
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.
