Handbags make the woman, and Bridezilla’s Big Day is no exception! From bridesmaids to flower girls to Bridezilla herself, every lady needs the perfect purse to tote on the big day. And for such elaborate bags, Bridezilla is looking no further than Judith Leiber. The Hungarian crafter of haute couture handbags is as visionary in her field as Bridezilla is in the field of say, champagne fountains. In fact, every First Lady since 1953 has carried a Leiber handbag to the Presidential Inauguration, as have smoking stylezillas like Sarah Jessica Parker and Nichole Kidman. In other words, there’s no better handbag to instantly propel Bridezilla to the class of company she deserves! Best of all, Leiber handbags are one of the few luxury products handmade in America (Leiber emigrated in 1948), so Bridezilla can buy high and still feel great about herself. Below, Bridezilla’s picks for bridal party purses.
Flower Girl Purse Pick. Forget butter cream. A flower girl fit for a Bridezilla prefers Australian crystals as her frosting of choice. This adorable cupcake purse may look familiar as the purse the lovely Lily carried in the Sex and the City movie. Sure, that one caused some trouble, but all Bridezillas know: blame the man, not the accessories! Complete your flower girl’s look with this utterly adorable cupcake purse and you will have a devoted attendant for all your ceremony needs!
Bridesmaid Purse Pick. This posh satin purse would look fabulous with any bridesmaid dress, while the bejeweled butterfly adds just the right touch of Bridezilla glam. Your girls will look gorgeous carrying their chic swarm of handbags down the aisle, and will get butterflies every time they pull out these beautiful bridesmaid gifts.
See which of Leiber’s Australian Crystal handbags we chose for Bridezilla after the jump!
Bridezilla Purse Pick. No Leiber handbag round-up is complete without her name-making style, the minaudiere. This elegant clutch is alight with sparkly crystal clusters on a chic satin background. Get that final touch of arm candy, and take care of your something blue with this beautiful purse.
Bridezilla Bonus Tip: Leiber handbags are featured in the Victoria and Albert museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. So, if Groomzilla squawks over the price, remind him that these aren’t really arm candy, they are objets ‘d art. Foolproof!
