Your wedding day is a special occasion, and every detail matters, including your accessories. One of which, is the classy clutch.

While your fabulous wedding dress takes center stage, choosing the right clutch can complement your look and provide functionality. Here's a guide to help you seamlessly match a clutch to your plus-size wedding gown.

First, Look at Your Dress Silhouette

The style of your wedding dress sets the tone for your entire look. If you have a classic, traditional gown, opt for a clutch with timeless details like lace or satin. For a modern or elaborate dress, a sleek and minimalist clutch may gel better.

Color Coordination is Crucial

The clutch doesn't need to be an exact match to your dress, but if you are steadfast about them complementing each other, here’s the general rule of thumb.

If your dress is white or ivory, a clutch in a similar shade or even a metallic hue like silver or gold works beautifully. For colored dresses, choose a clutch in a complementary or neutral shade.

Fabric 101

The fabric of your clutch should harmonize with your dress. For example, ff your gown is made of satin, silk, or lace, opt for a clutch in a similar material. This creates a cohesive look and texture.

Embellishment if You Want to!

Looking to make a statement with your bridal ensemble? As mentioned, if your wedding dress features embellishments like pearls, crystals, or embroidery, typically a clutch with matching details creates flow. 

However, we love a minimalistic dress paired with a few striking accessories, so if you just LOVE that pearl-dabbled clutch (or beads, crystals, lace) go for it.

The Perfect Clutch Size

The size of your clutch should be practical. It should be large enough to carry your essentials, like your phone, lipstick, and tissues, but not too big to overwhelm your outfit. A medium-sized clutch is typically a safe choice.

Clutch closures come in various styles, from zippers to clasps. Ensure the closure is secure to prevent any accidental openings during your special day.

Personalize Your Clutch

Consider customizing your clutch with your initials, wedding date, or a special message inside. This adds a sentimental touch to your accessory.

It’s All About Your Style!

Remember- anything goes on your wedding day! Choose what is comfortable, pretty, and convenient for you!
