Wedding handbags do’s and don’ts

Wedding handbags are a great accessory whether you are the bride, the bridesmaid, or attending the wedding. But there are some dos and don’ts when using wedding handbags just as much as there is as to what you are going to wear.

If you are the bride you are more than likely to go for a white wedding handbag or an ivory wedding handbag depending on what dress you are going to wear. If you are the bridesmaid you might want to go for a wedding handbag that will match your dress so you could go for a pink wedding handbag or a blue wedding handbag depending on the colour of your dress. Then if you are a guest at someone’s wedding you can go for an evening handbag, maybe a black handbag as it would match any outfit. I would say stay away from large handbags, as they can look a bit casual and overpower your outfit.

Wedding handbags can be of any style shape and colour but we think silver wedding handbags are the best.
