Silver/grey bag suitable for wedding but LARGE!

I'm off to a wedding next weekend which involves lots of tube and train travel. I'm wearing my dune sandals, very high and very beautiful!!!

Has anyone seen a bag suitable for a wedding in silver ideally that would hold a pair of fold away pumps and still have room for the (mountains of) make up and phone?

If you could link to your outfit / shoes that'd really help. In the meantime, I found this. Can't say I'm wild about it but it does fit the brief.

What sort of price range are we looking at?

These are almost the same as my shoes (mine are a couple of years old but pretty much the same):

Dress is similar to this one:

Wearing a grey and silver hat also so I think I'm looking for a more muted silver or grey.

Or maybe another colour would be ok?

Sorry should have said dress is navy

Aaah, right! Nice choices. Would be interested to see the hat too. TBH almost any colour looks great with navy ('cause it's a neutral).

How was the failed bag capacity wise? Will have a rummage for you.

Te bigger the better but that would be fine.

Hat is borrowed/rented from one of those hat ladies! It is similar in colour and style to this one but more hat like!

This any good?

Thank you! I think I've finally got the picture this may seem an odd choice at first glance but it could work beautifully, this too. TBH I'd probably go with this one, yellow goes with everything and its lovely and roomy.

Will keep looking for silver / pewter / grey though, don't worry wink

Thank you so much ceeveebee and Mrslettuce

I love the top shop teal one and the yellow, they are totally the style I like and could see me using them lots afterwards.

I hadn't really thought I could go for a different colour than the silver/pewter/grey (I thought bag and shoes should match - am a bit out of date probably!)

pewter but no clue on size here or on JL

x post. No, no matching bag and shoes.
