With so many things going on during the lead up to your wedding, it’s easy to forget to pack some of the wedding day essentials.
We recommend assigning one of your best people to handle an emergency kit.
But first you have to get the kit together! Here’s our list for must-have items on your big day.
Stain Remover Pen – It’s something you hope you won’t need, but you’ll be glad to have it if you do! As the evening goes on, you should have a stain remover pen handy to combat any accidents for you or the bridal party.
Portable Steamer – Even if you steam the wedding dress and suit ahead of time, it still needs to be transported to where you’re getting ready! And that means, unfortunately, that more wrinkles are possible. By having a portable steamer on hand, you’ll eliminate any wrinkle worries.
Bobby Pins – Whoever you hire to do your hair will have a large supply of bobby pins on hand, of course. But what happens when they leave? Maintain flyaways or any fallen pieces easily simply by having bobby pins of your own in your emergency kit.
Lint Roller – Let’s face it: at some point, you’re going to need to rest your feet during the day. Make sure you’re free of any loose fuzz by using a lint roller after getting up.
Lip Balm or Lipstick – You’ll talk; you’ll eat; you’ll drink; you’ll kiss…and you’ll need to reapply your lip! Pro-tip: if your dress has pockets, carry your lipstick for quick access!
Sewing Kit – No one wants to think about it, but a rip or a tear is possible. Make sure to put a sewing kit in your emergency kit to fix missing buttons or small accidents easily.
Fabric Tape – Wardrobe malfunction? Not anymore! Double-sided fabric tape will quickly fix a fallen hem or slipping shoulder on the fly.
Blotting Paper – Just like your hair, you might need to maintain your makeup throughout the day, especially before the wedding begins. Blotting papers will absorb shine and oils.
Baby Powder – Need to absorb some extra moisture? Lace hitting you the wrong way? Baby powder is the answer!
Toothbrush and Floss – You’ll need to eat at some point, and you don’t need the added stress about worrying if food is in your teeth. Pack a toothbrush and some floss in your emergency kit, and voila – problem solved!
Deodorant – It seems obvious, but pack deodorant! Nerves and jitters can lead to sweat, and deodorant will keep you smelling fresh down the aisle.
Makeup Setting Spray – Your makeup artist will apply this as a last step to your makeup. But spraying throughout the day makes sure your makeup won’t be going anywhere – even on the dance floor!
First Aid Supplies – Got a blister from those shoes? You and your bridal party will be praising the emergency kit when a bandaid is needed…and you have one! Make sure to include antibiotic ointment too. You never know.
Tweezers – We know, it seems like overkill. But they’re so small and will easily fit into your kit. Wouldn’t you rather have them than not?
Clear Nail Polish – Need to fix your manicure? No problem! Clear polish can also fix a snag or a run in stockings.
Safety Pins – Pack a few different sizes for improper fits, broken straps, or a broken bustle. We’re firm believers in being prepared!
Earring Backs – You’ve been there – losing an earring is definitely not on your list, and having to take them off because you’re missing a back isn’t either!
Hairspray – Sometimes you just need a little touchup throughout the day or to fix a flyaway that a bobby pin can’t help. Your bridal party will thank you too!
Feminine Products – Never be surprised! You and your bridal party will benefit from peace of mind.
Pain Medication – You’ve been nonstop all day! Your feet might need a break, you might have a headache, or your bridal party might have had too much to drink at the rehearsal dinner. Either way, having pain medication on hand is a must.
Boutonniere Pins – Of course, your florist will bring some when they deliver the boutonnieres. But things happen! Better to have on hand than to be floundering right before the ceremony begins.
And there you have it! A wedding emergency kit that will keep all your worries at bay on your wedding day.
