The best shoe and bag combinations for weddings


We're not only shoe specialists here at Rachel Simpson we are also bag crazy! We have a bag to perfectly match all of our shoes- or if you want to mix it up a bit we've got bags that go with any dress- wedding, bridesmaid or just for fun! 

Often brides say 'Will I need a bag'? With our experience brides will use their bag after the ceremony to hold their tissue, phone, top-up lipstick and that's about it- so far we've found because our shoes are so re-wearable to other occasions brides use the bag to match with their shoes after the big day too.

We give you our fave combos and some fun mix and match styling. 

Firstly, pastel Mimosa, one of our most iconic shoes has a pastel array of matching bags, Mia. The soft scollop shape echos the fan detailing on the front of Mimosa. The bag comes with a chain so you can wear it over your shoulder or hold it as a clutch.

Next we have Isabelle and Iona. This shoe and bag combo is perfect pairing for a summer wedding, the colours match with an array of dress shades and the clutch is a classic envelope shape with stitched cut out fan shape detailing.

Lola-Rose with matching Lilly-Belle bag are a ethereal match with hand crafted pearlised leather flowers individually made. If you are a relaxed bride who is big on flowers and nature this the perfect mix for you. A romantic soft pairing, and a lower heel so easy to dance the night away.

Maria is a lower 7cm all over metallic heel for a most fashion forward bride, intertwining pieces of gold and gold snake create a knot at the front of the shoe. For this shoe we have box bag- Coco in Gold (which also comes in silver and array of pastel suedes) or Layla a snake printed envelope clutch (also available in silver, click here).

Both have chains so you can chose how you wear it, both bags are super versatile and will match with any of our shoes, and metallics are ideal for a trans-seasonal look and will go perfectly with a special occasion dress after the big day.
