What to include in your Wedding Day Emergency Kit

      Last week, I spoke about my Top 5 Tips on Getting Ready on the Wedding Day and I mentioned some things you should include in my highly recommended Wedding Day Emergency Kit. This kit has saved my couples many times over and although you may dread carrying an extra item during your wedding day, it is one that could potentially save you from the “running around like crazy because I forgot something” kind of disaster. 

      Since my couples receive a Wedding Experience Magazine that includes this invaluable tip, they are well prepared.  Like Elle, who’s July beach wedding was on a hot day. Elle, being her awesome self, made little baskets of “First Aid” kit to give away to her family. 

      Believe me when I tell you, it does save the day many times. If it doesn’t, at least you’ll have a Honeymoon Emergency kit!

      Here are the top things you should have in your Emergency Wedding Day Kit.

      • Deodorant (somebody is going to need it!)
      • Clear nail polish for stocking runs
      • Extra earring backs
      • Straws (to avoid messing lipsticks)
      • Baby wipes
      • Snack foods (trail mix, granola bars, fruits, etc.)
      • Bobby pins
      • Eye drops
      • Nail clippers / emery boards
      • Wet Ones 
      • Dental floss
      • White chalk (Covers stains on bride’s dress)
      • Fabric softener sheets (for static cling)
      • Tampons &/or panty liners
      • Small Scissors 
      • Black socks (your groomsmen may forget!)
      • Hair Spray 
      • Cologne
