Often a last minute addition to the trousseau, the bridal handbag is, nonetheless, an important appendage. You may find it gets in the way of your bouquet-touting, to such an extent that you end up just making your sister carry it, but if you don’t have a little bag in which to carry your lipstick/ tissues/ blister plasters, where on earth will you put them? Obviously, a wedding dress with sizeable pockets hidden within is voluminous skirt, is the dream, but if that dream is just beyond your reach – well, then, clutch bag it is.

They come in many a guise, of course; from the slouchy envelope, to the jewel-encrusted box clutch, to the angular perspex case; and many conceal that perfect add-on, a chain handle, invaluable when your ability to demurely clutch the little beauty starts to wane.

Look up above for our pick of the season’s sweetest pieces of bride-appropriate arm candy, with stockist click-thru, below
