You Cannot Go Wrong With Bling!

For Indian weddings, there is a simple rule that ‘you cannot go wrong with bling’. A metallic golden clutch will always complement any Indian wedding attire.

Bling and Indian weddings go hand in hand, so let your clutch enhance the glitter of an Indian wedding.

Choose The Right Size

Size plays an important role in making the focal Indian clutches look perfect. Taller ladies can opt for larger clutches whereas for the petite or shorter women smaller clutches work well. It is all about the visual proportion, as a clutch has to be noticeable but should not overshadow you.

What you will be carrying along to the wedding may also play a role in deciding the clutch size. If you like your keys, hand sanitizer, couple of tissues also tucked in the clutch apart from the essential cell phone and lipstick; a medium size clutch will be a more appropriate choice.

Choose The Right Style

Clutches come in various styles, and you need to be sure you choose the right one for your outfit!

The Envelope - This type of clutch has an envelope like look and closes like an envelope.

Minaudiere - These are small box-like clutches and they have a more ornamental look with encrusted jewels and gemstones. These type of Indian clutches are more suitable for a glamorous Indian wedding as they look like a piece of jewellery more than a bag.

Choose the style that works for you as each style has their own advantages. An envelope will offer more storage space compared to the minaudiere. However the minaudiere offers an unencompassed look. Depending upon whether you will be responsible for arrangements at the wedding venue or if you are a distant relative looking forward to a great time, the functionality of your clutch will vary. Functionality apart from visual appeal is key for choosing right Indian clutches for weddings.

Colour Coordination

As a clutch is used as a focal point in the overall look, it is not a great idea to play match them perfectly - contrasts and pop-ups tend to work better as they are more striking and not over the top!

A blue outfit can be paired with a fuchsia clutch or a neutral wedding outfit can be upped with a bright red clutch. Colour play creates a memorable presentation for the Indian wedding outfits.
