Getting married is one of the most special days in anyone’s life. However, wedding-day mishaps can happen to any bride. You can avoid disaster with a well-stocked emergency kit. A carefully packed kit includes simple, everyday items and wedding-specific items, all of which can be a lifesaver to you or your guests when the time comes.
My Wedding Day Emergency Kit includes:
Tissue It will definitely be an emotional day! And if it’s an outdoor wedding, it’ll help wipe off sweat.
Make up and face powder To re-touch yourself during the celebration.
Band aid New wedding shoes can cause blisters.
Extra bobby pins To keep your hair neat.
Gum or breath mint Because you would not want dragon breath when small talking with all your guests!
Anti-bacterial or hand sanitizer After shaking hands with some of your guests.
Small sewing kit In case of a wardrobe malfunction.
Antacid You will never know when indigestion attacks.
Comb To fix unruly hair.
Small mirror To check on your make-up and hair once in awhile.
Contact lens lubricant/ solution (if you wear contacts). Dry eyes can be painful and irritating on such an important day.
Mosquito repellant (if you’re outdoors) Simply because you don’t want to be feasted on.
Sanitary napkin If it arrives unexpectedly.
The best type of maid of honor is one like a boy scout—always prepared. Have her keep your emergency kit within arm’s reach. I also suggest preparing a smaller one for your groom, in case he has his own emergency.
It’s always good to be prepared when you get hitched…so your wedding day can run smoothly without a “hitch.”
