A great purse is a nice way to add a pop of colour to your bridal getup, whether it's with a pale 'something blue' or something a little more festive. It's can also be a cool way to add some personality to your big white dress - a fun tropical print for a destination wedding or a fierce slogan to really make a statement.
The good news is that everything is in (as it should be) from cute embellished duffle bags to chic box clutches to fabulous fringing, whimsical tassles, muted shades and bold brights you honestly can't go wrong.
Where to shop for a wedding day bag?
There are plenty of options for bagging a beautiful bridal purse in Ireland no matter what your budget. Thrifty brides should keep an eye on Penneys (of course) and New Look for brilliant budget options that tick all the boxes, while those with a little more to spend can look to Accessorize, Dune, Quiz and River Island.
Online, asos is always a good bet, but also try Littlewoods Ireland as they often have some pieces on sale. If you're on the hunt for a mid-range designer try Arnotts, Debenhams and Kildare Village, or if you're planning to splurge hit up Brown Thomas or net-a-porter online.
