As a wedding officiant, I carry a basic wedding day emergency kit with me to each wedding. My kit carries most of the items I have listed below. But as a bride you can make your own emergency day kit that has your own stuff in it. Being prepared can really help make your day less stressful and much more enjoyable. Below is a list of things you might consider:
For the Bride:
Brush or comb
Hair spray or extra hair product, pins, etc.
Extra panty hose (if you wear them)
Makeup essentials, such as blemish concealer, lip color, mascara, and foundation
Perfume or scented spray
Antacid and pain reliever
A small sewing kit, which includes needles, thread, and safety pins.
A lint brush or you can add a roll of double sided tape, which can come in handy for quick hem fixes and other potential emergencies.
White chalk. If you get a spot or stain on your wedding dress, don’t panic. Dab it over with chalk to mask it. Also make sure to ask at the dress boutique or your seamstress what to do if you spill something on your dress. Should you get out the club soda or baby powder?
Deodorant. It’s a stressful day; smell your best.
Tampons or pads.
Wet wipes and/or stain removing wipes.
Cell phones and important phone numbers.
Healthy, energy-boosting snacks, such as fruit and granola bars.
Chocolate. Brides tend to get frazzled and stressed out on their wedding day.
For the groom stock:
Extra black socks
Brush or comb
Quick sewing kit with buttons, needles, safety pins, thread, and small scissors
You can purchase pre-made wedding emergency kits, but it is just as easy, and much less expensive, to assemble your own.
