Prepare an Emergency Bag

Listen up Brides, this is for you! Want to avoid a crisis at your wedding?

Be prepared.

EmergencyBagAlthough you may not need all of the items, to be on the safe side, you might want to pack a “beauty bag” (emergency pouch) to bring with you on the big day.

Be prepared for a “quick fix.” Bring needles, mini scissors and thread in the color of your dress and your bridesmaid’s dresses.

Also bring extra lipstick, pins, safety pins, sewing kits, dental floss, chap stick, clear nail polish, Band-Aids, Advil, Kleenex, hair spray, smelling salt, comb and brush, deodorant, perfume, Visine, barrettes and bobby pins, bottled water, crazy glue, toothpicks and anything else you think you might need.

A drinking straw for the bride will keep her from messing up her lipstick and chalk to mark out any flaws on her wedding gown are nice extras.

Also remember to bring an extra copy of contacts and phone numbers of all wedding day vendors, bridesmaids and groomsmen. Remember your Cell phone.

Always have something to eat before the ceremony. Crackers, cheese and a Pepsi is better than nothing.

Check out our “Beauty Bag” checklist.

Reminder for the Groom: To make sure you look dashing for the wedding, remember to bring along shaving cream, skin cleanser, cologne, toothbrush and toothpaste and other necessities. Show up. Remember to bring the wedding ring. Pop a Breathe Mint just before the wedding.

Here is another tip for the Groom: Make the kiss last a lot longer than you think necessary. There are two good reasons: 1. The photographer does not know when the kiss is coming and you will want a photo of that and, 2. The guests love it! ūüėČ
