Despite good intentions, you forced your bridesmaids into matchy-matchy dresses destined for Goodwill.

Now show your magnanimous side with a made-to-order bag from Rebecca Minkoff’s bespoke bridal collection. After having a dress constructed for her wedding, Minkoff turned the extra lace into handbags for her ladies-in-waiting (a few are available exclusively on her site). Now she’ll do the same for you.

Snag leftover silk, lace, satin, etc. (about half a yard per bag) or let Minkoff provide the fabric. Select from four classic styles: Rose (round with a cross-body chain), Simone (envelope shaped), Date Clutch (asymmetrical fold over), or perennial favorite Morning After Clutch. You get dibs on hardware color, but leave the trim to the experts.

In twelve weeks, the bags will be ready, and your besties will remember why they agreed to everything in the first place.

by special order (212-677-7829 or orders@rebeccaminkoff.com); online at rebeccaminkoff.com, $195-$215.
