Bridal handbags come in two basic types: all-out bridal (think Edie Parker’s famed “Mrs.” clutch, for example) and bridal-to-evening ready. For this blog post, we’re all about the latter, and we’re sharing our top picks for wedding-day handbags that make a seamless transition to evening-out elegance. Make one of these evening jeweled, fringed or glittering evening bags a part of your wedding attire, then keep it close at hand for accessorizing in style any night of the year!

Use this super-embellished bag as a bridal clutch on your big day, then put its cross-body chain to good use when you need your hands free for sipping cocktails or throwing your hands in the air like you just don’t care, on GNO!
