helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank


Another FAB giveaway this week here at BSB courtesy of beegee bags! These to-die-for clutches would add plenty of pizazz to your wedding day ensemble, make great gifts for your bridal party, or make a great accessory for a fun night out! With tons of fabrics and styles to choose from, you can really customize the look you want! Here’s some info about the company:


Brooke Galardi, the founder and owner of beegee bags, is a self-taught handbag maker. She got started a while back when she designed a fabric bag for herself on a whim. This first beegee bag is now safely locked away in a deep cavern so that no one will ever have to lay eyes on it. However, before it went into exile, a good friend admired it and asked Brooke to make her one and she wanted to pay her cash money for it! That was the beginning of beegee bags.


While still a modestly small boutique effort, we now sell to stores in California, Virginia, Georgia, and Washington, D.C. What began as a little “see what you can do” project turned into a terrifically (if not a bit daunting) rewarding artistic adventure. Rather than getting too caught up in trends, we focus on making timeless designs with a perfectionist’s attention to detail. We take pride in sewing and finishing, in house, all the products that we sell. We put a tremendous amount of time, care, and creativity into everything we make and do.

    My favorite beegee bag is the Red Lotus clutch! It is fashion forward and romantic.

    I am in love with “Mrs. Peacock” – not sure if I’m supposed to choose one from the featured clutches above, so if that’s the case, it would have to be “Nora’s Plume.”

    I have lusted over that Peacock bag for like a year now, so that’s it, hands down.
