Just about anyone who has or will plan a wedding has heard the bridal tradition “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe” at some point during the planning of the wedding. However, not everyone is familiar with the history behind it and what makes it so important to a brides wedding ensemble. The truth is, the origin of this English rhyme isn’t exactly known, but can be dated back to the Victorian era when it was said that keeping these traditions bring good luck to the bride to be and groom. Each piece is said to bring a different form of positive energy and good karma on the wedding day, for example, something old represents continuity, something new represents the couple creating a new union, and something borrowed can either represent borrowed happiness or a token of love from a friend or family member. The something blue stands for purity and love, and “a sixpence in your shoe”? Well, a sixpence is a silver coin that dates back to 17th-20th century and a coin in you shoe represents good fortune throughout your marriage.

Wedding day is the most precious day of every woman’s life and they want to definitely look their best. The best dress, best shoes, best clutch, best jewelry & best hair accessories. Bridal Clutch Purse is one of the most essential accessories for the bride these days. No doubt clutch purses enhance beauty of any dress, along with, that they also provide utility because for the long wedding ceremony and reception you would need a couple things to keep you looking fresh and glowing like foundation, lipstick, mirror, etc.
In order to choose the best suited bridal purse, you need to first of all know your bridal dress. What color is it – White, Off White, Ivory, Cream, or some other color. Once you know the color of your dress, the first thing to decide about your clutch purse is how big or small should it be. Depending on how your dress drapes, how long it is, and how easy or difficult to manage it would be. For longer dresses with more drape you would be better off with a small more manageable clutch. However, with a simpler, shorter dress, you can go for a larger clutch purse.
With dresses which are embellished heavily, it’s recommended that you carry a simpler, plainer clutch purse. However, if your dress is the classic simple style, you can enhance it with a beautiful rhinestone embellished clutch purse.
Next question that sometimes bride worry about is, how to carry their clutch. It is recommended that if you have a shorter or a more manageable dress you can go with a ring handle bridal purse or a clutch purse to hold in your hand. But if your dress drapes long and is hard to manage, you would be better off with a bridal purse that comes with a chain string attached.
Lastly, one thing also to consider while choosing a clutch purse is, if you already have your ‘Something blue’ for the wedding? If not, our team at Chicastic recommends carrying a blue clutch purse to make it your something blue. It will not just be your blue for the day but it will add so much color & brightness to your dress and your wedding day that everyone’s eyes will be on you, all day!
