10 (tiny) things to keep in your bridal clutch bags
And what exactly does the Queen keep in her handbag?
10 (tiny) things to keep in your bridal clutch bags: There are many unanswered questions in life… How many stars are there in the sky? Why does round pizza come in a square box? And what exactly does the Queen keep in her handbag? Along the same lines as the last question, what exactly should you be planning to pop into your bridal clutch on the big day? Now I know you probably won’t be the one holding it, but here are ten essentials that I think it’s helpful to have close to hand at your wedding.
If your make up artist has left, it’s a long day to get through without a refresh! Have your lipstick in your clutch for top ups through the day.
Every girl needs a tissue sometimes – a stray sniffle, a lipstick stain on the teeth or a happy tear, tissues are essential.
3. Safety pins
Wardrobe malfunctions do happen! Keeping a few safety pins for on-the-go veil, dress or shoe repairs is a really good idea.
4. Hair pins
While we’re on the subject of pins – hair grips, pins and a tie are a good back-up in case of stray tendrils that need taming, or if you need to get that hair off your face before dancing all night.
5. Snack bar
This may sound like a weird one, but so many brides report that they forgot to eat enough because they were just having too much fun! A cheeky nibble on a snack bar will keep the blood sugar up.
6. Foldable flats
You may not notice the ache of feet in heels all day, but if you do, a pair of flats that fold will be a lifesaver!
But if you do want to wear your shoes all day, chances are this will be their first outing and they may rub! Plasters will become your best friends!
8. Travel sized perfume
For refreshes through the day.
Although you’re unlikely to notice them on your wedding day, aches and pains don’t choose when to strike, having painkillers at hand can be helpful for you and your friends!
Purely for the camera! You can’t walk down the aisle with a phone in your pocket, so make sure it’s close by for the shots you want! Also, you may want to hear from those who couldn’t attend the wedding. Your maid of honour can monitor!
And then there’s the clutch itself – what will you choose?! Can’t fit it all in a clutch?! Buy a cute tote bag and designate a bridesmaid to be in charge of it! For more bridal inspiration, head over to our wedding fashion and style page.
