There’s a famous phrase that applies to nearly every aspect of life: “Sh!t happens.” Sometimes that “sh!t” is out of our control, and weddings are no exception to this phrase. Being prepared for those setbacks as best as possible can turn a wedding from a near disaster to smooth sailing. Your bridesmaids will thank you if you give them a survival kit to keep those little disasters at bay during your big day!
Two Words… Fabric. Tape.
If hem decides to loosen, a bra strap keeps slipping, or a flower applique falls off of the flower girl’s dress, don’t fret. Fabric tape will fix things right up. You can find fabric tape at your local sewing and craft store or at online retailers.
Handle the Aches & Pains.
Headaches and heartburn don’t care if you’re relaxing at home or about to watch your best friend marry the love of her life. Popping a few single-serving packers of Tylenol, Advil, and antacid tablets in the bridesmaid survival kit will keep discomfort at bay. [While you’re at it, throw in a few Electrolyte Replenishers to help with the inevitable alcohol-induced dehydration.]
Bobby Pins Can Save The ‘Do.
If your bridesmaids are all rocking beautiful hairstyles for your wedding, stock their kits with bobby pins just in case a hair emergency arises.
Avoid the Mess.
Like fabric tape, Stain Removal Sticks can be a life saver. Some sauce from that appetizer landed on the flower girl’s dress? No problem! A little dab of the stain removal stick will have her cleaned up in no time.
Don’t Skip The Food & Drink.
With so much going on throughout the wedding day, it can be easy to forget to eat and drink. Include a tasty energy bar and a bottle of water for your bridesmaids to keep their energy high all day long.
