Best Handbags for Wedding Season

Posted on August 28 2017

Whether it’s because of the beautiful, vibrant colors of the changing leaves, or the much-welcomed cool breeze after a hot summer, Autumn is known for being peak wedding season. Either way, we don’t blame happy couples for tying the knot in the last months before winter. Weddings are an exciting time for all, but that’s not to say they don’t bring a little stress. One of the biggest struggles of wedding guests is knowing what to wear on the big day. Do you go with a comfortable neutral, or make a statement with something new? The right handbag can be the perfect addition to any wedding ensemble, but knowing which one to choose can be tough. Here are some do's, don'ts, and favorites for handbags during wedding season!

Weddings usually mean two things: good food and lots of dancing. Chances are, you won’t want to bring a huge tote to the big event, so keep it low-profile with a small, handheld clutch. This way, you won’t have to worry about sitting uncomfortably with a huge bag or leaving it behind at the table while you dance. Here are some great wedding-worthy clutches that won’t be a bother to bring along:

 

Louis Vuitton Louise MM Black Leather Clutch

 

Alexander Wang Prisma Purple Lambskin Leather Crossbody Bag

 

Just like you would never be caught wearing white to a wedding, you probably don’t want to arrive with a bag that will completely steal the show either. Avoid bright colors or statement details that overpower the rest of the outfit and take away from the bride-to-be. If you’ll be in pictures with the bride or bridal party at all, be conscious of how the bag will appear in comparison. You might want to stick with neutrals, or a bag with soft, subtle details that complement your outfit, rather than overpower it. Here are some great bags with details perfect for a weddings.

Jimmy Choo Bow Crystal Bar Tan Suede Flap Clutch

 

Bvlgari Serpenti Forever Pink Leather Clutch Shoulder Bag

 

Louis Vuitton Santa Monica Pink Vernis Leather Crossbody Bag

If all else fails, try picking a bag that matches the occasion—any piece that says “love,” or has an air of romanticism that you know would be approved by the bride is sure to be in good taste. Here are some of our favorites that definitely fit the bill:

Louis Vuitton M94048 Pentillante Aurore Empreinte Leather Clutch

 

Finding the perfect handbag for wedding season is no easy feat, but it can be done when you consider the size, color, and details of the bag you want to wear. The important thing is that the bag is worn in good taste and isn’t too much of a bother to have on you. What do you think of the wedding-worthy bags mentioned here? Is love in the air?
