Surviving Your Wedding Day 101: Handling Emergencies

You’ve picked out the perfect dress, scouted every venue in your state, and taste-tested more cake flavors than you even knew existed. After spending ages wedding planning, the moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived: it’s time to tie the knot! You triple-checked your to-do list, but did you consider what you’ll do in case of any last minute emergencies? Here’s our guide to building the perfect emergency wedding kit, and ensuring a flawless walk down the aisle:

Emergency Wedding Kit: Bride

First things first, let’s focus on bride-related emergencies. As the bride, you are the star of the show, so we recommend packing a tote bag full of tools that will fix any potential hiccups that may prevent you looking and feeling your best on your special day. Whether that means q-tips, makeup wipes, oil blotting pads, perfume, or even a jade roller, you know best what you need to feel yourself. We recommend also bringing a mini sewing kit, double-stick fashion tape, and a stain remover pen to quickly fix any spills, wardrobe malfunctions, or rips. Additionally, pack some pain relievers to aid headaches and anti-blister pads to slip into your shoes and ensure your comfort walking down the aisle. 

Emergency Wedding Kit: Bridal Party

Next, let’s make sure the loved ones you selected to support you at the altar are in great shape to do so. Prepare to embark on a long, emotional, exciting day: make sure everyone has enough to eat to prevent them from getting lightheaded or tired. Pack plenty of water and healthy snacks, like protein bars and fruit. Help your bridesmaids and groomsmen stay even more bright-eyed by bringing coffee, green tea, and maybe even a few liquor shooters for that extra kick of energy. 

Emergency Wedding Kit: Groom

Be prepared for any groom-related wardrobe emergencies by packing extra buttons, cufflinks, socks, and handkerchiefs, in case he needs a last minute outfit change. Quickly clean up any spills or spots with a stain remover pen, and make sure you bring a lint roller and shoe shine wipes to keep his aisle look crisp. Lastly, bring a set of toiletries, such as deodorant, mouthwash, nail clippers, and a comb to help him stay fresh throughout the big day.
