Wedding day purse?

Hi... How many of you are planning to use a purse on your wedding day? Or if already married, did you use it and would you do it again? I don't know if I need one or not... or if I can just put my lipstick and a couple things in my MOH's purse...

No purse for me! I'm already carrying a bouquet.

Yes, I had a purse because it came with my dress and it matched everything that I was wearing that day. I had chapstick, lipstick, Kleenex and my ID in it. Since our ceremony and reception was at the same resort as where we were staying, so right before the reception, I went back up to the bridal suite to get it. Here is a picture of it...

I am planning to. But I haven't found "the" purse yet. It's not important if I don't find one - I think half of the time I'm going to leave it in the bridal suite anyways or give it to one of my BMs.

I was planning to carry a small, flashy handbag. I think my MOH will be carrying it most of the time. ;)

I used my coach wristlet to carry lipstick and mirror. But I didn't really carry it around with me. I kept it in the changing rooms at the church & reception site and in the car when we took photos.

I plan on doing it just to have essentials all in one place. I won't really be carrying it though. I'll leave it at y seat.

I put my make up in my maid of honor's purse and just went to her table when I needed a touch up. I just didnt know how I would get my purse to my sweetheart table without holding it and walking in with it and that would look tacky I thought.

I bought one, and it was a waste of money. I think i actually took my lipstick out once in between the ceremony and reception. My MOH had everything i needed.

Of course! But its only a target brand and I plan to put a few things in there. I never leave home without a purse.

FYI...I had my small purse, but didn't carry it at all. I had my MOH carry all my essentials/emergency bridal kit in a pink sachel. Likely you won't need a purse cause it would be a hassle to carry.

I'll have one only during the reception. I'll need something hold the red envelopes we'll be getting... hopefully. ;-) My sister will probably hold the essentials... lipstick, powder, whatever.

I haven't really started looking for one yet. It sounds like Nordstrom is a great place to look.

I did for Kleenex, lipstick, etc. I got it at a vintage shop to go with my dress. I'll try to post it. [img]http://tinyurl.com/2ck8ks[/img]
