One of our favorite must have bridal accessories and vendors is the stunning Italian silk The Mrs. Clutch handbag. These lovely purses are truly the best solution for holding all of a bride’s trousseau. Not sure what the word trousseau means? I learned this from word from the owner and designer of The Mrs. Clutch Maria Caruso Martin to describe all of the details that a bride selects as a part of her wedding day. A trousseau is a collection of those details that are often heirloom items, special details, and belongings. I cannot think of a more perfect way to carry your bridal accessories than in this beautiful handbag.
Bridal accessories are often selected over the months of wedding planning including a gartier like the ones we love from La Gartier, a lettered handkerchief, earrings, and the perfect Chanel lipstick. Many of our couples carry special Vow Books for their ceremony, love letters or notes for their fiancé, or sentimental gifts from their love. I love that The Mrs. Clutch allows for these sweet notes and vows to be carried throughout their wedding day along with all of their bridal accessories.
As a wedding photographer, I spend at least 30 minutes before your wedding day styling your bridal accessories and details. I always ask my couples’ to provide their details in an organized manner so I can quickly style for their detail photos. If you are carrying one of these stunning handbags with you throughout your day then you can easily hand your accessories to us for photographs. Your bridal trousseau is an important part of your love story, and I can only image that you’d like to keep these items close to your on your day.
One of our greatest loves for The Mrs. Clutch comes from their commitment along with us for Vow for Girls. As a wedding photographer in Colorado, I believe every girl and woman should have the choice to marry whom they choose. We are taking a stance again child marriage by partnering with Vow for Girls. As a powerhouse non-profit fighting child marriage across the world, Vow for Girls allows our clients to donate a portion of their wedding gifts to the cause. Maria with The Mrs. Clutch is a Vow Pro just like I am, and this connection is how we discovered each other.
One of our greatest joys as your wedding photographer is creating heirloom portraits and details from the very beginning of your love story. The Mrs. Clutch handbags are a beautiful item to create as your own family heirloom. They are unique and versatile pieces that can be worn years beyond your wedding day with a variety of outfits and occasions. I love that it can be a beautiful legacy item for your future children and grandchildren. Some of our favorite bridal accessories are perfect to keep in a treasure box to share with your future loved ones.
These handbags are created as a honor to Maria’s own heirloom items from her grandparents. Her story is a beautiful nodded to the importance of creating and honoring our legacies and our future dreams.
