7 Items Every Bride Should Have In Their Wedding Day Clutch

June 21, 2017 Kleinfeld Unveiled

On your wedding day, it’s essential to keep a few key items tucked away in your bridal clutch. These items can be used in case of minor emergency (we hope there isn’t one!) or simply to keep your bridal look on lock from the moment you walk down the aisle, to your reception exit. So here are 7 chic clutches at Kleinfeld and the 7 essentials that go inside!

1. Lipstick 

Most likely you’ll be reapplying lipstick throughout your entire wedding day. Having your favorite lipstick on hand (especially if it’s in this chic butterfly clutch by Judith Leiber) will keep your lips perfect, no matter how many times you kiss your new spouse!

2. Blotting papers

Instead of powder or concealer that could end up on your dress, blotting papers make it easy to attack the shine, without ruining your makeup. Whether your wedding is in the summer, fall, spring, or even winter — having blotting papers on hand will help with any mid-day shine. Bonus! This clutch by Lea Black will discreetly hide them.

3. Bobby pins

Bobby pins are a necessity for when your hair does something you don’t want it to do. No matter the hairstyle you choose for your wedding day, bobby pins can fix (almost) anything! Store them in this stylish clutch by Lea Black. 

4. Small/roll-on perfume

A little perfume goes a long way, especially on a long (wedding) day. Store a bit of perfume in this Crystal Crown clutch by Judith Leiber. You’ll not only smell great but look like royalty!

5. Tissues

Weddings are basically full of happy tears. Keep tissues tucked in this elephant clutch by Judith Leiber to wipe away any eye makeup that goes astray.

6. Fashion tape

Always carry fashion tape. Especially for your bridesmaids. You never know when they may need it! This LOVE clutch by Judith Leiber is the perfect size to carry some fashion tape!

7. Mints
Between kissing your love and processing down the receiving line, having fresh breath is essential. These Judith Leiber Macaron Pillboxes could easily store some mints!

5 Tips To Your Wedding Seating Chart

1. Organize your guest list. 

When RSVPs start hitting your email or inbox — start grouping your guests together. The groups will come in handy when it’s time to arranging your seating. Examples of groups include: college friends, family, friends, colleagues and even a category for special needs. Don’t underestimate the ‘special needs’ group as a few of your guests may have difficulty walking far into a room, may need close access to a restroom, or may be hard of hearing which affect how close/far they are away from the DJ or band. 

Luckily, AllSeated provides you a state of the art guest tool where you can manage your guest list and then arrange your seating directly from that list. It’s not only super easy, but fun too! 

2. Assigning tables or assigning specific seats?

 Consider how you wish to seat your guests. Do you want to assign your guests to tables and allow them to choose their seats or do you wish to assign guests to specific seats at specific tables. Assigning guests to tables requires escort cards or a seating chart board display to let your guests know where they should be seated. Assigning specific seats at a table will require place cards in addition to escort cards. 

3. Decide who gets the prime tables. 

You want your closest friends and family members to have the best seats in the house. Seat your closest friends and family at the first tables surrounding the dance floor, rather than rows behind other tables, near the kitchen, main exit or by the band. 

4. Choose who sits near the music wisely.

Keep in mind who’s most likely to sit or dance during the party. Ms. Hammer says, “older guests may be more interested in conversation than dancing” and suggests moving them away from the dance floor or music as these can make conversations difficult for them. 

5. Take into consideration relationships and dynamics of your guests.

It’s important to not only group tables together by relations, but also play matchmaker! Keep guests’ interests in mind when putting people together. For example: Your Uncle Larry may be an avid golfer and so is your groom’s second cousin. You may want to pair them together during the reception so they’re able to connect! Put time and effort into matchmaking your guests!

Introducing Walk-In Wednesdays!

June 1, 2017 Kleinfeld Unveiled

Big news from Kleinfeld Bridal! For the first time in over 70 years, brides will be able to shop at Kleinfeld on Wednesdays without appointments! That’s right — on Wednesdays no formal appointments necessary to shop for wedding dresses. We’re calling this new initiative “Walk-in Wednesdays!” Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited about this.

1. ASAP Shopping 

If a bride got engaged over the weekend and is wanting to find her dress ASAP… She’ll no longer need to wait weeks to shop for a dress! Now she can come to Kleinfeld on Wednesday, walk-in and find her wedding dress and be done with that.

2. Visitors to NYC can shop easier! 

If a bride-to-be is visiting NYC from abroad, she’ll be able to come by Kleinfeld on Wednesday to shop for her wedding dress on a whim. No more strict itineraries. If she has a few hours, she can stop by the store on her own schedule.

3. Meet Designers at Trunk Shows 

Kleinfeld Bridal has trunk shows nearly every single day. If there’s a designer that has a collection that you’re dying to try-on such as Pnina Tornai, Hayley Paige or Randy Fenoli — you’ll be able to come-in on Wednesdays to not only meet them, but you’ll be able to try-on their dresses!

4. Find Your Favorite Silhouette Before Dress Shopping

Most brides do not find their dream dresses at their first appointments. Now on Wednesdays, brides can come to Kleinfeld alone or with their squad  and try-on dresses to get an idea of what they’re looking for BEFORE officially going wedding dress shopping. Here you’ll be able to pinpoint if you love a certain silhouette (mermaid or ballgown anyone?) and the style. This will make appointments down the road easier and more efficient!

5. Need Last Minute Accessories? Don’t Worry! 

Your wedding is quickly approaching and you realize your bridal look needs another accessory or two. Now, you’ll be able to come to Kleinfeld on Wednesday without an appointment and pick out perfect accessories.
