The summer months are jam-packed with goodness, aren’t they? From days out by the pool to nights under the stars, you just can’t beat warm Southern summers. We are so happy that y’all have taken time out of your busy summer days to check in to see some downright gorgeous Southern weddings. June has been chock-full of amazing nuptials and equally amazing giveaways. Whether you fancy jewelry or dresses, we are determined to get you all decked out for the summer season!

First up, we wanted to introduce a little sparkle into your summer with a giveaway from Desires by Mikolay’s Bling! line. With a dash of sophistication and a big dose of shine, the Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings from Desires by Mikolay will be perfect for your big day.

We asked y’all to tell us which Bling! accessory was your favorite for a chance to win a pair of Bling! Diamond Shape Filigree Earrings. Congratulations to Kathy M., who was won over by the blue topaz cocktail ring. Isn’t that color just marvelous?

A bride is faced with many choices when planning her big day and often at the top of the list for the style-conscious are the outfits. While that gorgeous white dress is the most important concern, you want your bridesmaids to look lovely, as well. Twobirds Bridesmaid deserves a round of applause for their genius concept. Twobirds dresses can be worn in a multitude of fashions so your maids can choose for themselves which look fits their personality best.

We asked you to tell us why your maid of honor means the world to you for the chance to win two dresses from Twobirds bridesmaid. Congratulations to Suzy, who chose two matrons of honor (who now each get to wear a gorgeous Twobirds dress)!

When the time came to choose my MOH, it was a no-brainer. I chose the TWO most wonderful and beautiful women in my life to be my Matrons of Honor. I’ve always known that on my wedding day, I would have only them stand beside me and no one else. It’s been the three of us since elementary school and our bond is one of my most prized possesions. We’ve gone from trading stickers, sleepovers and ballet class to dinner parties, careers and babies and everything in between. They’ve found the men of their dreams and now that I’m about to marry mine, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and love for these women and I know how fortunate I am. This wedding completes a chapter for us, in that we will all have found our counterpart and I would love nothing more than to gift them with these beautiful dresses.

Last week, we introduced you to one of the best Southern collaborations I’ve seen. Your beau will be the envy of all of his friends when he dons a Collared Greens bow tie, and you’ll be the belle of the ball when you carry a gorgeous clutch from Oatmeal Lace. Did we mention that the two of you will match beautifully? These are the perfect accessories for all of those summer weddings you’ve been invited to.

We asked y’all to tell us how you like to accessorize when you attend weddings (as a guest, of course). Congratulations to Miss Caitlin, who sounds like a real stunner:

My wedding guest accessories usually consist of jumbo sized pearls, a hair flower clip or headband, a cute clutch bag (like the one in this giveaway – wink, wink), and naturally, some fabulous heels (you have to make your calves look ahhmazing)!

Caitlin, be sure to send us some pictures of you and your man with your new Southern accessories! We’d love to see them!

Also, Oatmeal Lace and Collared Greens are each offering a special 10% discount to all of our lovely readers! Just enter the code “SWLOVE” at checkout!

Whew! It has been simply wonderful to share all of these amazing giveaways with you. Lucky winners, I will be contacting you by email in the next few days! We love our fabulous readers and we are so glad that you love us, too! Make sure you keep reading — there are more giveaways to come!

Southern gents know that there’s something to be said for the perfect bow tie. Sure, ties are professional, but Southern gentlemen know that bow ties add a little playfulness and make a man look just dandy.

If Southern gents are known for their bow ties, Southern gals are known for their ability to coordinate any outfit perfectly. Perfectly poised and put together, a Southern lady never forgets her pearls or that perfect clutch. And what could set a Southern gal’s heart to fluttering more than the chance to coordinate that perfect clutch with her beau’s bow?

Oatmeal Lace, known for fabulous clutches, has struck a beautiful partnership with Collared Greens, an eco-chic menswear line (with a fabulously Southern name). A match made in heaven? We think so, and love that their giving us the opportunity to make the perfect match for one Southern couple: a perfectly coordinated bow tie and clutch! These pretty, preppy accessories will be perfect for all of those friends’ weddings you’ll be attending this summer.

To Enter: Head on over to the Southern Weddings Facebook page and click the ‘Like’ button. Then scurry back over here and leave a comment telling us that you ‘like’ us. Lastly, tell us how you like to accessorize when attending a wedding (as a guest, naturally!).

Win: A gorgeous Gingham Clutch from Oatmeal Lace and a matching Gingham Bow Tie from Collared Greens. You’ll be the best looking couple, no doubt!

You have until next Tuesday, June 21st at midnight to enter!

Beautiful shoes are a given at any wedding (or party or dinner date, or really anything!) ;)

    Usually when I go to a wedding, I like to keep my dress simple and classic and really amp it up with the accessories! I like to do a solid dress with a bold pair of sky high heels. If I wear a coral colored dress, I love using turquoise accessories (necklace/clutch).

  24. avatar Mary L reply

    I like to wear solid classic dresses to weddings so I have to step it up with accessories so I don’t look boring. I definitely like to accessorize with a bold pair of sky high heels and fun necklaces and clutches. My philosophy is to throw one unexpected item into my outfit and a fun clutch would be PERFECT.

I love classic jewelry and a fun clutch to pull an outfit together, but my favorite accessory is my fiance!

That’s almost too much to handle (almost)!

  32. avatar jules reply

  33. avatar Rob!n C. reply

    I “liked” you on facebook if only they had a “love” button for you all!

    My favorite way to accessorize this year has been wearing a fun nail color like buttercup yellow with a honeysuckle colored dress! It’s an unexpected detail, plus my hands look cute when I get to show off my beautiful engagement ring!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. avatar Megan reply

    Of course I have already “liked” ya’ll. I love to accessorize as a wedding guest by wearing colorful accessories to compliment my dress…and of course by sneakily matching my man (he hates when I make us too match-matchy)

  35. avatar Emily Lindner reply

    I love ya’ll on facebook!!! These would go perfect with our cotton boutonnieres down here in Mississippi!! But as I guest I love to wear a fun overly girly accessory like a huge bow headband to weddings! Can’t sleep tight without my daily fill of SWM! Love yall!

  36. avatar Jenny F. reply

    I “liked” you on facebook! I think the best way to accessorize is with some chunky statement jewelry. I’m a big lover of Etsy, beacuse they’ve got stuff there that you just can’t find anywhere else. It’s the kind of stuff that make people wanna strike up a conversation with you.

  37. avatar Elizabeth reply

    I “like” Southern Weddings and love all the great features y’all post! I recently discovered Oatmeal Lace, and think McKay has some absolutely beautiful designs, and I am loving the matching clutch and bow tie! When it comes to accessorizing for a wedding, I go for pieces that pop yet complement what I’m wearing:) And comfortable heels are always a must for the dance floor!

  38. avatar Marlowe Whittaker reply

    I “liked” yall on Facebook but I absolutely love yall. This clutch/bow tie combo is precious and perfect for a wedding. It would be the best couple accessory because I like to keep my style southern, classy and I’m always trying to get my Iowa boyfriend to get in touch with some southern roots.

  39. avatar Heather A. reply

    i “liked” y’all on facebook….i LOVE this…i don’t try to “match” my boyfriend, but i like for us to compliment….and i know, because we seem to go to a ton of weddings! this clutch and bow tie would be perfect for that!!! plus my guy looks so adorable in his bow ties :)

  40. avatar Jessica reply

    I just liked your facebook page! I already love your magazine too! I like to accessorize with pearls for a classic look or for a fun look with a flower headband and cute wedges!

  41. avatar Stefanie R. reply

    I “liked” you. I think the best way to accessorize is with a nice shawl. I have a champagne colored one that goes with just about everything and keeps me warm during those chilly evening receptions.

  42. avatar Kate reply

    I “liked” you on facebook! I think the best way to accessorize is with some beautiful pearls and a great pair of heels. Can’t go wrong with that!

  43. avatar Ashley reply

    I’ve “liked” you on facebook for a very long time! When attending a wedding, the dress is key. Something classy and cute that fits your personality.

  44. avatar Michelle reply

    I “liked” you guys on Facebook! I like wearing a muted solid color (black or navy, for example) with a pop of color in the shoes, clutch or flowery hair accessory! So fun!

  45. avatar megan reply

    i like you! i love to wear a colorful pashmina to weddings. it’s perfect to cover my shoulders during a church ceremony and handy to throw on when outside receptions turn a little chilly.

  46. avatar Jennifer reply

    Of course I like y’all on Facebook! I think a fancy pair of shoes is an accessory in itself! Bring along an equally fabulous clutch, and you’re set to go. Not to mention the proper jewels…. Either an amazing pair of earrings and a collection of bracelets or a chunky necklace with dainty stud earrings…pearls, maybe?

  47. avatar Sarah Torrens reply

    I love Southern Weddings!
    As a guest at a wedding, I usually wear a simple solid-color dress, but accessorize it with a chunky, interesting necklace or chandelier earrings!

  48. avatar Margaret Campbell reply

    If there was a “love” button on facebook, I would use it for y’all! As it is, I suppose I can settle for a simple “like.” Honestly, my favorite wedding accesory is a hefty champagne cocktail. But if we’re sticking to outfits, my fave accessory is my pearl studs or some gorgeous pumps. Keep it simple, keep it classy!

  49. avatar Joanie Oben reply

    I liked y’all. Hope I win!

    I’m actually going to a wedding tomorrow. I love to punch it up with bright colors in the summertime.

  50. avatar Amanda reply

    I like southern brides! and I liked you on fcbk! ;0) When I attend a wedding I first try and find out what the bridal party is wearing. I try not to match and clash at the same time. I looooove bangles and long dangling earings. It depends on the type of wedding but for my friends intimate backyard get together, I was able to wear a casual sundress, flip flops and dressed it all up with beautiful gold leaf earings and gold bangles.

  51. avatar Caitlin reply

    I “like” you a lot! (Even on facebook!) Love this giveaway! My wedding guest accessories usually consist of jumbo sized pearls, a hair flower clip or headband, a cute clutch bag (like the one in this giveaway – wink, wink), and naturally, some fabulous heels (you have to make your calves look ahhmazing)!

  56. avatar Jessica reply

    Liked you officially on Facebook!! And my favorite accessories for when I attend a wedding are the perfect classic dress (color depending on the time/type of wedding) with pearls and a cute date that wants to have a good time and dance at the reception!

  57. avatar Jessica reply

    Liked SW officially on Facebook! My favorite way to accessorize for a wedding is with a classic dress (color and style depending on type and time of wedding) with pearls and a cute date who would have fun and dance at the reception!

  58. avatar joy gay reply

    I LOVE you guys! and I am dying to get ahold of this specific tie and clutch pair. I love to match us like southern beau and belle style. Because he calls me Belle. We are what I call country chic. Which is a classy look on a simply style. He is the most adorable thing in his suspenders and I like to get him and I tiny matching things to tie us together. I love to play up the fact that he is a southern doctor and he likes the way I make a throwback look for us when we go out to the theatre to see gone with the wind or at the wedding last month with a vest that was black and pink pinstripes and I wore pink heels and a clutch to match him. oooohhhh I hope I win!!!!!

  59. avatar Joy Gay reply

    I “LOVE” you guys on fb. I am dying to get my little mittens on this adorable pair. My best accesory is my sweet sugarbear! I love that he embraces that whole southern doctor thing and lets me get him in suspenders to take me out. We just did a wedding and he had a black/pink pinstripe vest and I wore heels and clutch to match. We almost stole the show, hahaha

  60. avatar Henria O. reply

    I like Southern Weddings on Facebook! This pair of accessories looks like they would be really fun to wear! Usually, I like to wear a pretty hair clip or flower in my hair along with a nice clutch and some interesting shoes!

    My wife loves SW and I do too (on facebook!) A well dressed gentelman always does a wedding good.

  64. avatar Britt reply

    SW is awesome! I love a classic dress and a string of pearls for a wedding

  65. avatar Whitney reply

    I “liked” y’all on Facebook! (And in real life too!) When attending a wedding, I like to accessorize usually with one bold statement piece, ie. a chunky costume jewelry type bracelet or huge dangly earrings or a cute belt. After I choose one bold piece, I add small details in fill the outfit out, such as tiny pearl earrings or a silver ring. I think this keeps the look fresh, classy, and doesn’t attempt to outdo the bride!

Southern girls are all about the details. Dressing up doesn’t just mean slipping on a fabulous dress — it means picking the perfect accessories. Any Southern girl knows that the right heels, the right jewelry and the right bag make the outfit.

Well, we have a surprise for all you Southern brides looking for THE clutch. You know, that one that just seems to complete any outfit and has all your friends asking where you got it? The one that would be a perfect addition to those beautiful bridesmaid dresses you picked out? The one your bridesmaids would actually be able to use again?

We want to help you get your bridesmaid collection started. BabbsBoutique, an Etsy shop, has perfected the silk evening clutch and one lucky winner will get THREE custom BabbsBoutique clutches for her bridesmaids!

What do you need to do to win this great prize from BabbsBoutique? Check out the fold over clutches on the BabbsBoutique Etsy site then come back here and leave a comment.

    thank you very much!

      Hi Chelsey! You’re absolutely right — our mistake! I switched the giveaway end date to next Tuesday, February 1st. Thanks so much for pointing that out!

  2. avatar Cristina reply

    I would customize the clutches so that they are ivory in color with an ivory flower on the outside. The interior would be royal blue to give it a nice pop of color. I’d add the wristlet to make it easy to carry around.

  3. avatar Heather reply

    I have three bridesmaids, so this clutch would be a PERFECT gift! The ruffle fold over clutch with eggplant ruffle would match their amethyst bridesmaids dresses and silver shoes perfectly :)

  4. avatar AshleeG reply

    I would do the scalloped clutch in black with a flower in fushia, a black wristlet, lining would be a coordinating pink, and each of their initials or names would be sewn inside with a scripture reference.

  5. avatar Ashley reply

    I love these! I would choose the scallop fold over clutch in black with the ivory ruffle flower brooch (to match the black bridesmaid dresses!) Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  6. avatar Kim reply

    I love these fold-over clutches!!! My maids are wearing navy, so I would go with the silver dupioni ruffled clutch with navy as the contrasting color.

  7. avatar Heather G. reply

    My girls are all wearing different styles of dresses in different shades of aqua/robin’s egg blue with silver shoes. So I’d want one of each style of clutch in either ivory or silver with vivid plum as the accent color to give them a pop.

  8. avatar Danielle reply

    I love the scallop fold over clutch in silver with an eggplant ruffle flower brooch. It would be a great gift to give to my sister and my fiance’s two sisters and it would go great with their purple dresses!

    Eek! Do you know how hard it’s been for me to find teal bags? They have some beautiful silk ones. I’d love to get the teal for my bridesmaids and maybe a silver one for my MOH. The personalized tags that you can have sewn into the bags are adorable, too. I love that idea!

  11. avatar Allyson Cantu reply

    I love the scalloped edges with the purple flower.

  12. avatar Rachael reply

    I am totally loving the eggplant Silk Fold Over Clutch with the scolloped edges. The matching brooches in my wedding colors. A different accent colors for each bridesmaid- silver, black, and ivory. And for a personal touch, the silver label inside with a special thank you for each.

    This would make a perfect gift for my very special bridesmaids!

  13. avatar Laura reply

    I love the scalloped edge clutch! Also, the add on wrist band is great… a must.

  14. avatar Kate reply

    My May 2011 wedding colors are gray and blush pink. The bridesmaids are wearing gray and my wedding gown has blush undertones. I think the silver scalloped clutch with a blush pink flower would be a wonderful gift for my special ladies!

  15. avatar Laura reply

    I love the scalloped edge clutch with the flower. Also, the add on wrist band is great…. a must!

  16. avatar Sarah C reply

    LOVE the mustard yellow :) If I won, I’d incorporate vintage brooches onto the center of each flower/bow/etc to create a customized look for each bridesmaid ! LOVING THESE!!!

  17. avatar Elizabeth P. reply

    What great purses! I would love to personalize the bags by adding ruffles in complementary colors but different fabrics.

  18. avatar Laura reply

    Oh my goodness, I love me some color, so I can’t even start to decide how I’d customize them, but I’m sure I could decide if it meant I could have one of these fabulous clutches!

  19. avatar Joy reply

    The silver with scalloped edge and I would love to attach a cranberry flower! The inside would match the flower add on.

  20. avatar Amber reply

    My wedding is in October so my colors are warm yellows, oranges, reds, and greens. I also am going for a vintage theme for my wedding. I really liked the clutch with the ruffles on the side and the buttons down the middle. I thought that it would go with the overall vintage look. I would customize them to be in a warm yellow or orange instead of the ivory.

    I was totally planning on getting my bm clutches, I love these! I have 8 bridesmaids so this giveaway would be a great start. My 2011 wedding colors are gray, black, ivory and hydrangea green. I would customize the clutch for my bm by doing a black body ruffle folder over style with silver ruffle and by adding a white silk and tulle embellished flower (with pearls in the center for a true southern female). Then add a fun green print inside with initials and our wedding date. To coordinate with the bm I would do a white clutch with silver ruffle and same white flower for myself the bride. You have to add the wristlet to make it an everyday or night accessory!

    My wedding is September 17 and i’ve been looking for that perfect clutch for my bridesmaids. I really love the bow fold over clutch with an eggplant colored bow on a silver clutch. My wedding colors are eggplant, purple and lavender so those would be soo cute!

  26. avatar Molly reply

    My wedding has a gray, white and kelly green palette. My bridesmaids will be in the kelly green color–I think I’d do the silver scalloped clutch with a silver flower…I think…how do you choose?! They’re all so cute!

  28. avatar Melissa in MA reply

    loving the bow clutch in silver with ivory accents. Perfect!

  29. avatar Kristin reply

    I am in love with these clutches! My favorite would have to be the bow fold over clutch! I’m doing a very traditional black and white wedding with red accents (shoutout to Katherine- I loved your b&w wedding!), so the ideal clutch to go with my black bridesmaid dresses would be the bow clutch with an exterior black fabric, white bow, white trim, and a red lining to add that pop of fun and sexiness!

    I’d get 2 with a green pouf and 1 with a blue… then i’d also probably buy an extra one with a blue pouf (4 bridesmaids). But I’ve been desperate for help with the bridesmaid’s gifts – so this would be great!

    I love the fabric! I’d choose the ruffle foldovers in medium blue with black trim for my bridesmaids who are wearing black. It would add a beautiful pop of color. Thanks for the chance for the giveaway!

    I LOVE these Clutches!! I am a huge supporter of Etsy, so to find this on here was amazing!! I have 3 Bridesmaids and 1 MOH, so these would be such a special thank you gift for them to show how much I appreciate all their help, hard work, and participation in our Special day!! I would customize each one differently to show their personal styles. Our wedding colors are a few different shades of green and pink. Love the ruffle outline (this would work great for Kassy’s modern side), the bow I would choose for Lindy (she has a very sophisticated style), the ruffled fold over design (that belongs to Natalie! She’s spunky and classy rolled into one!) and last but not least my MOH Mandy would get the Poof!! She is fun, funky, and loud! And the POOF screams that!! All of these accents would be in fuschia and light pink with the clutches being silver! I would also include a special message to each one and maybe add a lil bling for them to wear on the BIG day inside as an extra surprise! Thank you so much for presenting this opportunity for Brides! Its hard to come up with creative ways to make your bridesmaids feel special and not just give them an ordinary ole gift! These would be perfect!!

    I LOVE these clutches!!
    I have a lot of bridesmaids, but I have a Maid & Matron of Honor. I also need something cute to carry my things in=]
    I would want All three in the Scalloped fold over, Two of them with the Eggplant color flower & then a third one with a Ivory color flower. (my girls dresses are going to be a deep plum/eggplant color)
    I want the gifts for my maid/matron of honor to be different than the gifts i give to my bridesmaids!!!

      and i would want all three of the bags in silver, forgot to say that. =]

  34. avatar Erin reply

    I just adore the scallop foldover clutch! For my ‘maids I’d get the clutches in black and make sure there’s an emerald rosette on the corner since the girls’ dress colors are emerald green and the wedding colors are emerald, black, and white/silver. They’re dramatic, but DEFINITELY use-again-and-again friendly, and truly the perfect bridesmaid gift!

  35. avatar EmilyL reply

    oh my goodness! I am using scallops and stripes for my wedding decor so naturally the scallop fold over clutch would be PERFECT! I’d either pick a yellow or navy bow. Oh, they are so cute! Though…if she could do the new middle ruffle on the scallop I’d choose a navy scallop clutch with a silver big ruffle and the sunshine in the middle.

  36. avatar Rebecca C. reply

    I love the scallop fold over clutch! My wedding colors are pale blue and yellow. Since the bridesmaids dresses will be pale blue, I would get the clutch in silver with a yellow ruffle flower brooch. They are beautiful!

  37. avatar Brynn reply

    I love these clutches!! So cute! My best friend’s wedding colors are grey and Malibu blue, I’d love for the flowers on these to be a pretty bright blue, they’d match us perfectly!

  38. avatar Nicole reply

    I love these! I would totally want the ruffled fold-over clutches with sunshine ruffles… like these:

    I absolutely adore these and would love to win! My colors are grey/yellow/orange/teal… so these clutches would be PERFECT!

  39. avatar Stacy reply

    I love the scallop fold over clutch with the flower–I would do it in copper with maybe a sunset orange flower, with a sort of teal colored lining. I would love to personalize them on the inside if that is possible. Beautiful!

  40. avatar Ashlin reply

    I LOVE these clutches. My bridesmaids’ dresses are actually made from dark brown dupioni silk so the BabbsBoutique clutches would complement them perfectly. I would probably customize it by using the Dark Champagne dupioni with a dark brown contrasting fabric. Not only would they be great for my girls for the wedding but they could most definitely use the clutch over and over!

  41. avatar allison reply

    This would fit our colors perfectly! I’d love to win the scallop fold over clutch in silver w/ fushia pom!

  42. avatar Katie reply

    I would keep the clutch color as shown on this blog post, but I would opt for a lighter purple fabric flower. These are so pretty!!

  43. avatar Caroline reply

    These clutches would be just the right accessory for my bridesmaids! My maids are wearing different styles of long Amsale dresses in slate blue. My vision is for each clutch to be different so I can match the unique styles and personalities of each one. The bow would be great for that preppy southern girl and the flower is perfect for some of my fashion – forward girlfriends. I’d love to have the clutches in champagne and incorporate a pop of contrasting color in parrot green or silver blue. The finishing touch – once I got the clutches, I would have them embroidered on the inside flap to include a special message to my dearest friends.

  44. avatar Anna D reply

    LOVE this trend for bridesmaids gifts! I would select the Ruffled Top Silk Fold Over Clutch in Peacock Blue Dupioni Silk with Light Gold and Dark Champagne Dupioni Silk as the accent ruffles. Great give away SW Mag :)

    The ruffle fold over clutch with bubble gum pink ruffle would match my wedding colors and bridesmaid dresses perfectly!

  47. avatar Elyse G reply

    Love the ruffle fold-over clutch I think a silver clutch with sapphire purple would love gorgeous

  48. avatar Courtney Reynolds reply

    I lovee these! I would choose light dusty gold clutches with scalloped edges. One would have a sweet pink bow, one a pink flower and one would have 3 little hearts spaced out above each scallop. Pretty! Pretty! Pretty! My bridesmaids will love these!

  49. avatar Elizabeth reply

    The clutches are fantastic! I love the vintage feel that some of them have–which is something I am going for with my wedding style. My wedding colors are celadon/sage green, gold, and cream. I love the silk pleated clutches that she has designed, so I would start with that in a cream color. have a narrow band of the green silk where the hem line for the pleats are with vintage looking rhinestones on it that are set in tarnished-looking gold. I also love the chains–that is a must! The lining on the inside could bring in more of the deep gold color. Y’all are awesome!

  50. avatar Susan reply

    I’m on the hunt for cute clutches for my bridesmaids and these are perfect! I like either the silver or copper silk in the ruffle or scalloped pattern. And a white flower to adorn them would be the icing on these adorable cupcakes! What a great designer…and giveaway!

  51. avatar Martha reply

    My sisters would love these–especially because they love to match! I would choose the ruffle fold over clutch for them, sweet and pretty like they are, in navy with the ruffles in royal blue. We all like blue and those are my wedding colors. I would have them as wristlets, and add a silk name tag that had each of their full names plus “sisters forever” and the date.

  52. avatar Katie reply

    The bow fold over clutch is UNREAL. I think that it would describe both myself and my bridesmaids in a way that many other potential bridesmaids gifts could not do. I would actually love to make it in a sunset rose with an aqua blue bowcombination. Sounds a little wild, but when my colors are peachy coral and light turquoise – man, I sound more particular than I really am! – I think it would be a fun and memorable way to remind them of my colors, while also giving them something they could wear again with their dresses. These clutches are so fun. I would love them in any color… I might just have to get one for myself… ;)

  53. avatar Laura P reply

    Love these clutches! I am going to gift my girls clutches instead of flowers to hold down the aisle. I love the silk foldover and my vision would be for the purse to be mustard yellow with a sapphire blue flower. I would want my MOH to stand out a bit, so I’m thinking hers would be the “Ruffled Top” clutch in mustard yellow, with the ruffle in sapphire blue and slate grey. Delicious!

  54. avatar Adrienne reply

    I would love to win this!!!!!! I imagine a bubblegum clutch with a bold black bow off to the side. My girls are wearing pale pink and black heels so these would really set it off!

    The artists of Babbs Boutique are so talented; these clutches are absolutely beautiful! My favorite is the ruffle-fold over clutch…I can just imagine it in fig with an ivory ruffle, and a fig-colored wristlet.
    What a thoughtful giveaway!

  57. avatar Stacey reply

    I love the ruched edge and scalloped clutches. These are adorable! I love all of the combinations.

  58. avatar Bella reply

    Babbs Boutique clutches are absolutely lovely. I have a peacock themed wedding and I would customize the clutches to be navy blue on the outside, and lined inside with vivid plum or purple, with a small gathering of peacock feathers in the corner. Since I am wearing a dupioni silk dress, it would be great to have the clutches made out of the same material.

    • avatar Brianna reply

      Such cute clutches! I love the silver with the navy blue dresses that I am thinking of for my bridesmaids! I would do the silver with the ribonned edge in navy, and (while I am not sure that this is an option on the etsy site), I would have them monogrammed in navy!

  59. avatar Taylor J reply

    Oh these are gorgeous! If these were for my bridesmaids, I’d have the silver clutches with each one having a different pink or yellow embellishment (flower or bow depending on the girl’s personality) and a small monogram placed on the lower right flap of lid. HOW ADORABLE!

  60. avatar Sydney Dawn reply

    Like Katherine, I am a big fan of bows so I would go with the bow fold over style in brown with the copper bow for a fall wedding.

  61. avatar Sarah W. reply

    I have 3 bridesmaids and I know they would love this! Although they all have such different personalities, I can honestly say they would love the fold over with the bow! I would likely get the copper color and accent it with black or ivory. Our black and white black tie wedding is just the perfect setting for the beauties!

  62. avatar Kimmy Stablein reply

    I am absolutely enamored by these clutches. I love the idea of tying in the theme color of your wedding with the beautiful appliqué flowers on the many versions of this clutch. I would give each of my bridesmaids a different style of clutch as their bridesmaid’s gift for their “carry-all” on my big day! What a great, versatile gift that can be used over and over again! It’s like the gift that keeps on giving! Beautiful, BabbsBoutique!!

  63. avatar Lauren G reply

    These bags are awesome! They would be perfect for my two maid-of-honors and myself! I would keep the shape of the scallop foldover clutch, but I would add a navy ruffled trim to follow the scallop shape. Simple, yet stunning!

  64. avatar Jenna F. reply

    These are absolutely adorable! I would customize these for my 5 bridesmaids with the yellow and gray. Those are my wedding colors, and my girls’ dresses are bright yellow, so I would love to see them in the silver with the sunshine trimming and details! My favorite foldover clutch is the one with the bow. So chic! Of course, if I won, I would have to purchase two more :)

  65. avatar Sophie reply

    I LOVE these clutches. I saw the clutches with the burnt yellow/golden accessories on the side and was drawn to them. The grey and yellow are two of my colors, and they would look perfect with my bridesmaid dresses, which are linen: tea green, burnt yellow/gold and a deep grey/brown. My bridesmaids are my best friends, I would love for them to have these little clutches!
