While the wedding dress is without a doubt the most important part of a bride's look on her big day, that doesn't mean accessories can't feel just as special! 

It's true - bridal attire isn't typically associated with the word practical, as things like where to put essential items on the day itself, are usually glossed over. Whether you opt for a wedding dress with pockets or a bridal bag or clutch, you'll be thankful for the easy and quick access to a lipstick top-up, some plotting powder, a breath mint, a safety pin, a mirror, or anything else that relieves your on-the-day emergency needs that might pop up. 

Beyond being your night in shining armour, bridal bags and clutches make the perfect accessory post-ceremony! From elegant pearls to embellished designs, stylish minis and on-trend shoulder bags - don't over the power of a bridal bag for your wedding day! 

The 16 best bridal bags and clutches for 2024 weddings  


We're here to help you find the perfect bridal bag for your big day! Find the accessory style that fits in with your wedding day aesthetic by paying attention to the theme, vibe and location of your wedding. If you've selected your sleek and contemporary registry office wedding dress, you might prefer an elegant pouch bag or a timeless and stylish pearl design. For those who love the look of a traditional gown, you can't go wrong with a bridal clutch. While brides opting for a trendy and statement ceremony will gravitate towards a design with on-trend features like oversized bows or feathers.
