There is a debate around whether brides should have a handbag on their wedding day or not. If you have one to carry your lippy and your phone in – where do you put it? Do you give it to someone else to carry? And if so, who? Or maybe you ditch the idea of a handbag altogether, instead choosing to give all your vital bits and bobs to someone else to worry about. Whatever your decision, there are some fabulous bridal handbags to choose from and here are some of our favourites – it is National Handbag Day after all!
