Tips and Advice: Creating a Day-of-Wedding Emergency Kit

If there is one thing that every bride needs with her on her wedding day, it is a Day-of-Wedding Emergency Kit! Though most weddings will go off without a hitch, it is important to be prepared just in case. The kit contains items small enough to fit in a purse or toiletry bag, making it convenient to carry along to the venue and reception. It should be stored in a place that is easily accessible during all parts of the wedding.

There are pre-packaged kits sold online, ranging from about $20.00-$45.00. Making your own kit could be cheaper and also fun because you can personalize the items based on what you think you will need or additional things you may want to have on hand.

The Knot provides a wonderful list of essential items that you should consider including. The bold items are absolute must haves:

  • Aspirin (or pain reliever of choice)
  • Band-Aids
  • Bottle of water
  • Deodorant and Perfume
  • Clear nail polish (for stocking runs)
  • Dental floss/toothpicks
  • Extra earring backs
  • Extra panty hose
  • Hair pins/ponytail holder
  • Hand towelettes
  • Hem tape
  • Matches
  • Mini sewing kit
  • Safety pins
  • Scotch tape
  • Small folding scissors
  • Spot remover
  • Static-cling spray
  • Straws (so the bride can stay hydrated without messing up her lipstick)
  • Tissues
  • Tweezers
  • Breath mints
  • Comb/ brush
  • Hair spray
  • Make up for touch ups
  • Tampons

You will be surprised how much use you will get out of your kit and how thankful you will be that you made one! This could also turn into a fun activity to do with your Maid or Matron of Honor!
