The right handbag for the bride

Choosing the perfect handbag for the wedding day is crucial to completing the bride's look. The main things to consider when choosing are the size, color and style of the bag. A bag that is too big may be impractical on the wedding day, while a bag that is too small may not have enough room for all the small but important things a bride should carry.

Ideally, the color of the handbag should harmonize with the wedding dress. Traditionally, many brides choose white or cream, but a bag in an accent color that can be found in jewelry or in the wedding colors can make an impressive statement. When choosing a style, it is important that the handbag is both elegant and timeless so that it will continue to bring joy after the wedding day.

A perfect example of a stylish and practical choice is the Anna Bag which impresses with its elegant appearance and functional aspects. Its compact size is ideal for storing essential items without being bulky.

In order to perfectly combine the bag with the wedding dress and other accessories, brides should consider which elements of the dress should be particularly emphasized. For example, a bag with subtle embellishment may suit a heavily decorated gown, while a simpler bag may go better with a minimalist dress. This coordination will create a cohesive and stylish overall look that will make the special day even more memorable.

Handbags for wedding guests

Choosing the right handbag as a wedding guest is crucial to complement your outfit in style while ensuring functionality. Colors and shapes that can be universally combined offer the greatest flexibility and elegance. Such versatility is demonstrated by the Mia Tote Bag Mini in ivory, which with its compact size and classic design goes with almost any festive outfit.

In addition to the choice of color, the way in which a handbag rounds off the overall outfit also plays an important role. A well-chosen bag can set subtle accents or serve as a striking accessory. The Mia Tote Bag with Etoupe Edgepaint with its unique color contrast and elegant design, offers an excellent opportunity to make a fashion statement without being overbearing. It blends seamlessly into the overall look and adds an extra touch of sophistication to any look.

Material and workmanship: the key to longevity

The longevity and quality of a handbag are directly dependent on the materials used and the care taken in the workmanship. BONAVENTURA uses only high-quality leathers that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also guarantee exceptional durability. One of the exclusive types of leather is fjord leather, known for its robust texture and excellent durability.

Fjord leather is characterized by a supple surface that develops a beautiful patina over time. This type of leather is particularly resistant to wear and tear and is therefore ideal for high-quality handbags that are used regularly. An outstanding example of this is the Noa Bucket Bag which not only impresses with its stylish design, but also with its durable construction.

In addition, BONAVENTURA attaches great importance to ethically responsible material sourcing and compliance with the highest production standards. The combination of craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology results in accessories that meet the highest aesthetic and functional standards. This philosophy ensures that each bag is not only an elegant accessory for special occasions, but also a faithful companion for many years to come.

Care and storage of luxury handbags

Proper care and storage of luxury handbags is crucial to preserving their beauty and functionality for years to come. Leather handbags, especially if they are made from high-quality materials such as those from BONAVENTURA, require special attention to maintain their condition and value.

To care for leather handbags, it is important to clean and condition them regularly. To do this, use special leather care products that nourish the leather and protect it from wear and tear without damaging the surface. A soft, dry cloth can be used to gently remove dust and light soiling. For heavier soiling, professional cleaning should be considered to preserve the integrity of the leather.

After the wedding, the handbag should be stored properly to prevent loss of shape and damage caused by moisture or direct sunlight. Stuff the bag with soft material, such as tissue paper, to maintain its shape and store it in a breathable bag. Avoid plastic bags as these can dry out the leather. Proper storage will ensure that the handbag remains in top condition for future occasions or as a family heirloom.


The right choice and care of wedding accessories, especially handbags, plays a crucial role in perfectly complementing the festive occasion. High-quality handbags are not only practical companions that keep important personal items safe, but also stylish additions to the overall look that add a special touch to any outfit.
