Bridal Clutch Bag Essentials

As a bride, you don’t necessarily need a handbag on your wedding day, since chances are, you won’t be needing to carry anything like cash, your licence, keys etc. And, you can rely on your trusty bridesmaids, family and friends to hold things for you.

But, if you’re like me, you’ll want a few important items with you at all times. And so, its a good idea to have your own bridal clutch bag to keep all these essentials in one place…


Lipstick, liner & setting Powder
Makeup is a big part of your wedding day, and therefore so are touch-ups. They help keep your makeup in place and everything looking fresh. Your makeup artist will recommend products that he /she feels will work best for you.

Ear buds/Q-tips
These come in handy for almost everything but are especially useful for around your eyes area if you’ve gotten emotional throughout the day.

Safety pins
A wardrobe malfunction is always unexpected, so its a good idea to be prepared! 2 or 3 safety pins in your handbag will sort most dress emergencies.

Hair Pins
There is always a possibility that some hair may come loose throughout the day. A few pins in your bag can save the day and help keep your hair in place


Weddings are emotional!! No question about it and so, you’re likely to cry (possibly more than once). Be prepared by carrying tissues so you can blot away the tears (and those of your spouse if need be) 😊

Gum or Mints
You will be greeting/welcoming guests throughout the day with a beautiful smile on your face so youll need to keep your breath fresh in between conversations

Smelling heavenly on your wedding day goes without saying. So a small bottle of your bridal scent should be popped into your clutch for a quick spritz throughout the day.

A wedding can be a busy day. Lack of sleep, exhaustion, and anxiety is quite common which can see headaches creeping in. To avoid ruining the atmosphere,  having 2 paracetamol in your bag will sort those niggles out.

This one is completely optional!! Personally I highly recommend giving your phone to a friend to take lots of pics for you so that you’ll have some photos to look through the next day rather than depend on people sending you some
