One thing that can help keep wedding day anxiety at bay is to prepare an emergency kit with a few essentials to have at the ready on the day-of. Even if the emergency kit goes untouched for the entire day, having a few "just in case" items on hand is a great way for couples to feel more at ease. While many wedding planners (us included!) come prepared with an emergency kit, we wanted to provide a list of a few essentials for any brides or grooms looking to create a small kit of their own.
Hand sanitizer. While this is always a good essential to have, given the current pandemic, we recommend throwing in a backup face mask too, just to be safe!
Touch-up necessities: anything from makeup and hairspray to perfume and cologne. Whatever you might need to touch up your look throughout the night.
Bobby pins to keep your hair in place all night long.
Floss to keep everyone's smile picture perfect!
Mints to freshen up. (A toothbrush and toothpaste would work too!)
Deodorant for even more freshening up.
Tissues for all the happy tears!
A lint roller to keep everyone's outfit looking just right.
Clear nail polish for manicure touch-ups.
Scissors to snip loose thread or ribbons.
A mini first aid kit for small cuts and scrapes or blisters from too much dancing!
Stain remover because accidents happen!
White chalk, which can help cover wedding dress stains that won't come out!
Safety pins & wardrobe tape for any wardrobe malfunctions.
Pain reliever for sore feet or an unwanted headache.
Pens not just for the guest book, but also to write last-minute cards or to sign a last-minute check!
There you have it! A small list of a few essentials to keep in your wedding emergency kit! This is by no means a comprehensive list, but it's just a little something to get you started. Happy preparing!
