Regardless if your wedding is big or small, an emergency kit filled with save-the-day items is a must. We’ve compiled a list for you of items that we think are must-haves to keep on hand during your big day.
Band-Aids & OTC Pain Meds
Cuts, bumps, bruises, and headaches happen. It’s important to be prepared for them when they do, so throw a few travel packs of Ibuprofen and Band-Aids in your emergency kit to be prepared.
This one single item could potentially save the day if someone has a wardrobe malfunction. Some items to include in the kit are needles, thread (black, white, and any other colors on your dress), safety pins, small scissors, and hem tape.
Snacks & Water
It can be really easy to forget to eat when you’re focused on getting ready for your wedding. It’s important to stay hydrated and fend off hunger by keeping a few granola bars, snack-size bags of almonds, and water at the ready. Stay away from eating a big meal while getting dressed to avoid feeling bloated or sleepy.
Hair & Makeup Products
A travel-size bottle of hairspray and bobby pins will tame any hair that happens to become unruly after your stylist team works their magic. Hugging friends and family, sweat, and tears can also cause makeup to become a little smudged, so keeping some lipstick, mascara, and blotting powder close by for quick touch-ups is helpful.
A stain-removal pen, such as a Tide To-Go Stick, can save the day. From drinks and food to makeup and dirt, your light-colored dress is prone to stains.
A pack of issues can fix anything from lipstick-stained cheeks to makeup tears that are caused from the happy emotions of the day. Stash a pack or two in your emergency kit.
