Clutch in place of the traditional bouquet is indeed here to stay! If you are considering this idea, then be rest assured, you are not alone.
Using the clutch instead of bouquet, is an alternative idea if you don’t want your bridesmaids to carry flowers etc, or you’d like to move a way from traditions and do something totally different! Bouquets, made with real flowers can be expensive, and what perfect alternative is a clutch? That you get to keep for a very long time? The clutch-instead-of-bouquet option has the distinct advantage of giving you a place to hide your lipstick, mascara, breath mints, tissues, safety pins, keys, etc.
