Getting married? Most brides probably wouldn’t walk down the aisle bag in hand (it would really clash with the bouquet!). But, if you’re anything like me, it’s hard to part with your purse for a whole day – what about make-up touch ups or essential Facebook updates (“I’m married, woo!!”). And you certainly can’t work the room toting around your everyday leather satchel (seriously un-chic), which is why I’d like to present my fave clutches, to have and to hold…
When it comes to your Registry, many people focus on the things they’ll need to build their new home together (which is great!), but forget to add the things they’ll need when away from home. Or, more importantly, on their honeymoon – You can’t go on the most romantic vacation of all time without being prepared! To help all you newlyweds, I’ve rounded up the 5 essentials for the jetsetting duo, so you can focus on the fun stuff (like what to wear – or not! Wink wink).
