the clutch :: bridal accessories from Etsy

Today, I'm writing about an important bridal accessory: the bridal clutch. What I love about clutches is that they're relatively small, easy to hold, and definitely do not take away from the bride's overall look. They're used to carry small wedding day necessities: lip/chap stick, powder, oil blotters, gum or mints, license/credit card(s), bobbi pins, some money, etc. For the modern bride who is always looking to either personalize or glam up elements of the wedding, finding a vintage, textured, and even colored bridal clutch is a great way to do it. Check out these fabulous finds on (Notice most of these aren't white!)

If you haven't visited, you're missing out. Etsy's tag line speaks for itself: "Your Place to Buy and Sell All Things Handmade." I regularly visit the site to check out hand made art, whether it be engraved materials, paper, pillows, totes, jewelry…you name it. The site showcases the works of many talented artists around the world. One day, just one day, I'll find time to use my sewing machine to make some hand made goodies to sell…and I'll definitely be utilizing Etsy!

These hand sewn clutches are fab finds and don't cost an arm and a leg. If you're planning on buying a clutch for your big day, consider a hand made, one-of-a-kind accessory…and check out Etsy's site. You'll be supporting our small businesses, the self-employed, and the hard-working artist community! One last tid bit, these clutches double their purpose, as they can easily be worn again…on a night out!
