Prepare a “Must Have” Wedding Day Emergency Kit

A bride without her trusty emergency kit (some call it a survival kit) is a meltdown waiting to happen!

WEDEmergencyKitIt’s always better to be safe than sorry. There’s no time for panic on your wedding day. The last thing you need on your wedding day is to be unprepared if something goes wrong. Have your bridesmaids or maid/matron of honor, or do-it-yourself and put together a list of just-in-case items that will ensure your dream wedding goes off without a hitch. They have been known to save the day on more than one occasion.

These things might include makeup, bottled water, a phone, band-aids, Altoids, etc. Pack up your kit in a tote bag, satchel or gym bag and keep it easily accessible in the bride’s dressing room and close by during the reception. The better prepared you are, the smoother your wedding day will go.

Before the wedding day, put together a little kit of must-haves in case something should go wrong. Ideally, you should have extra make-up, safety pins, pantyhose (both black and nude), nail polish for snags, hairspray, a comb, and anything else you deem appropriate to combat wedding stress. If a situation does arise, you’ll be thankful you had these things with you.

Reminder for the Groom: To make sure he looks dashing for the wedding, remind him to bring along shaving cream, skin cleanser, cologne and other necessities. Show up. Bring the wedding ring. A few other reminders for the groom.

By the way, if you don’t have any wedding day mishaps, beauty blunders, fashion faux pas, or personal care predicaments, pass it along to the next bride from your bridal party.

Take a look at a list I put together: CelebrateIntimateWeddings.com/bridesemergency.html. In sharing this article with a bride whose wedding I was about to perform, she suggested, “smelling salts” in case she (or, more likely, the groom) keeled over during a pivotal moment, requiring immediate resuscitation. 😉

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! 😉
