Bridal purses are an essential part of the bride's wedding day ensemble. For carrying lipstick, face powder, breath mints, and some emergency items, the bride's purse is most necessary item. Bridal purses can be made in fabric to match the bridal gown, with bits of lace or beading left over from the alterations. Another popular bridal purse option is a fully beaded bridal purse, which can also be used at special events long past the wedding day. The bride's handbag is often overlooked until a day or two before the wedding, when the bride realizes she wants to keep her cosmetics with her during the photography sessions, and during the reception. Purchasing your bridal handbag well in advance will prevent the last minute stress of shopping for the bridal purse during those last hectic days prior to your wedding.
Wedding money bags are a long-standing tradition. A bridal money bag is to be carried by the bride during her reception. It can serve as a purse, holding the bride's lipstick, powder, and other emergency supplies she might need. The bride's money bag is used during the "money dance", which is a special song played while the bride dances with any guest who would like to make a donation to the money purse funds. The bride collects $5, $10 or $20 from her guests (or more!!) as family and friends dance with her, and she places the cash in her money bag. The bride's money bag is also useful for collecting cards brought to the reception, which usually contain cash or checks. It is safer for the bride to keep the monies with her rather than allowing them to collect on a table, especially if no security is present.
Bridal money bags are offered in a wide variety of colors and fabrics, to match any wedding gown. Many of our brides choose a monogrammed money bag, which can be used for her shoes, lingerie, or other items on the honeymoon.
