What do you put in your bag as the bride
If you only have one thing in your bridal bag for your wedding day make sure it’s a mini emergency kit which has 17 of the essentials. Hair spray, tampons, stain remover, etc.
Plus the lipstick or gloss you’re wearing, powder or blotting paper for taking away shine and a tissue or Q-tip for removing any liner or mascara that may have smudged during the most moving moments of your day.
Do brides carry bags
If you’re wondering if you need a bag for your wedding day it’s really up to you. To be fair, most brides have someone to hold their bag or carry their things for them.
However, it’s always good to have as a back up in case you want to do a quick lippy touch up, snap a candid photo, or your bridesmaids are having too much fun on the dance floor.
Sure, your hands will be occupied with a dreamy bouquet for that walk down the aisle, but during the reception or any other festivities surrounding the special occasion, a beautifully crafted bridal purse comes in handy.Vogue
