As women, after we find the outfit we’re used to spicing it up with the perfect accessories. The same is true for your wedding gown. This is why our brides often ask us, “Do I need to carry a purse on my wedding day?”  The answer is yes AND no. Here’s why. Let’s be clear, you won’t need to be carrying around a cross body over your gown during your wedding festivities. But there are a few important, and often looked over, reasons why we do recommend at least purchasing a clutch for the big day. 

First is You’ll need a clutch because it makes for an amazingly detailed shot. But also, when you do the money dance, what better place to put your money than in the five-star clutch you bought specifically for your wedding? Another reason is the after party! Many of our brides have gone out or had a small after party AFTER reception. This is totally common. So why not join the party in style with your clutch in hand. Finally and in case your maid of honor hasn’t thought of this already, you’ll need a clutch to keep things like phone, room key, lipstick, blotting papers, and gum/mints all in one place.

Below is a rundown on two of our absolute favorite clutches for brides. The first is Saint Laurent and can be used even after the wedding. Tip: when convincing your husband to add this to the wedding purchases, just say it’s reusable, and won’t be for one day only. You can find this clutch here.

The second is wedding specific, but if you get it early enough, you can wear it for all your wedding festivities like your engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party and for the day of the wedding. This bridal clutch is by Show Me Your MuMu and you can find it here!

Will you be rocking a clutch on your wedding day? Is it any of these? If not, let us know where you got yours from. We’re always excited to add new bridal related designers to our list. If you need help picking out a bridal clutch for your wedding day, shoot us an email at info@btseventmanagement.com.

Bridal stylist is not a term you hear often when you think of wedding planning. The first vendors that come to mind are florists, photographers, videographers, or even wedding planners. The bridal stylist is largely overlooked. But weddings with a stylist are largely vital

We have an affinity for fashion, so it’s no surprise to us that the weddings of the brides, who hire a bridal stylist are often the most praised, for the complete look of the wedding. Because we hate seeing the bridal stylist get overlooked when hiring vendors to help you on your wedding day, we came up with three reasons why you should hire a bridal stylist.

As you go through the list, we’ll show you some of our favorite fashion-forward BTS weddings.

1. cut out the noise when saying yes to the dress

Have you heard the phrase, “too many chefs in the kitchen”? It’s when too many people are trying to control or influence a situation. This is what we recommend staying away from when the bride is saying “yes, to the dress.”

Finding the perfect dress is already stressful enough.  You’re trying to find the dress you haven’t already seen a bride wear. The dress that matches your wedding venue. The dress that compliments your body. The dress that doesn’t overshadow the groom. With so many things to consider, too many chefs in the kitchen can lead you into choosing a dress for the wrong reasons.

Entrusting a bridal stylist with searching for the right gown for you is a decision we can’t speak more highly of. It streamlines the process, may open your eyes to designs and designers you haven’t thought of, and so much more.

2. help the groom

Now, to be clear. All grooms are not fashionably-challenged. We’ve had many grooms in the past, whose fashion was ON POINT. But we’d be naive to think that’s all of our grooms. There are a couple dilemmas we often see when it comes to grooms picking out their tux:

  • Not thinking wedding day is also about them and just settling for a black tux.
  • Wanting to step out of the box a little bit, but not quite executing the look.
  • Wanting to step out of the box a little bit, but not sure how or where to start.
  • Wanting advice, but not wanting to ask their wife to keep that element of surprise between the bride and groom.

Hiring a bridal stylist for the reasons above can take tons of unnecessary stress off of an already stressful time. Let the stylist do the heavy lifting and help you with feeling and looking your best on your wedding day. After all, grooms, this day is about you too!

3. coordinate the entire bridal party

Just as the bride and groom should compliment each other, so should the bridal party. That includes everyone, mother and father of the bride and groom, ring bearer, best man, maid of honor, groomsmen and bridesmaids. You want everyone to cohesively compliment one another.

Now that you’ve got the rundown of why it’s important to hire a bridal stylist if you’re looking for one, please email info@btseventmanagement.com. We’d love to consult you on your wedding day fashion needs.

Black is sleek, sexy, classy, and the perfect color to wear to keep from upstaging the beautiful bride or anyone in the wedding party.
