Who says you have to carry a bouquet? If you're known for your expansive handbag collection, be true to your style on your wedding day.

Vintage clutches and makeup bags bring a little whimsy and sophistication to your wedding day look. Either use one that belongs to someone in your family (which can serve double-duty as something old and something borrowed!), or go on the hunt to thrift stores or vintage shops to find one that fits your style and budget. Although you won't be carrying your clutch around your wedding reception, it will make for some great photographs! Look for metallic styles, bags with unique shapes or fabric clutches with sweet embroidered details.

To take this idea to the next level, why not buy a vintage piece for your gals as a bridesmaid's gift? It's a present they're sure to love, and if they carry the clutches on your wedding day, we'll let you cross off something old from your list.
