After spending hours perfecting your table plan, many brides forget to prepare a wedding handbag. lf you don't want the hassle of a clutch on your big day, employ your maid of honour or chief bridesmaid as your personal handbag carrier.
We recently asked real brides what their wedding handbag essentials were. Here are the top 10 suggestions for the perfect handbag contents.
"Touch up" makeup -This will vary between brides depending on what makeup you wear. The most popular handbag options are lipstick, concealer and foundation powder.
Tissues For those emotional moments. Whether it be at the altar or evening reception after some bubbly, make sure you have those tissues at the ready.
Mints -To freshen your breath. You'll probably be receiving quite a few kisses on your wedding day!
Perfume Keep yourself smelling sweet with your favourite wedding day fragrance. Buy a handbag sized perfume decanter to put in your bag.
Deodorant Whether it be those pre-wedding nerves or reception dance moves, you may find that deodorant is a life saver.
Plasters and paracetamol Make sure you're blister and headache ready.
Compact mirror. Avoid lipstick smudges or running mascara and give yourself a quick check before those professional photo shots.
Hairpins -You'll probably find that your hair will begin to drop out as the day goes on. Keep your hairstyle looking fresh by pinning back any loose strands.
Spare tights On your big day you'll want ._ to look pristine. A massive ladder in your tights can be easily sorted with a replacement pair.
Flat shoes After a long day in your heels. kick off those shoes and dance the night away in some light pumps. These may be too big for a handbag but have them on standby at your reception.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely bouquet of flowers that you sent to my daughter today. She's been shielding since February so these made her day. She was delighted that there were no lilies in the flowers as she suffers with hayfever. Thank you - Helen P
Just to say a lovely thank you for the beautiful arrangement of flowers for the funeral sheaf I ordered for my fathers funeral. He was 91 and always interested in the environment and wildflowers. The arrangement was just perfect. Many thanks once again - Magda B
My family arranged for you to deliver flowers for my birthday last Monday and I have to say that they are the best flowers I have ever received! After a week they are still looking amazing and are likely to do so for several days yet. Thank you very much! - Mary B
