Wedding SOS: How to Create a Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Everybody wants a wedding day to go smoothly, but accidents happen - and we’re not talking about the falling over on the dance floor type of drama. 

Chipped nails, stained dresses and ladders in pantyhose… so many little things can go wrong. OK, they won’t ruin your day, but they will nag at you (think of those times when you’re in a meeting and you can’t stop looking at that slight chip in your nail polish!) 

That’s why every bride should have a wedding day emergency kit! 

You might want to ask your maid of honor to take charge of it, or you could take responsibility for it yourself. Put everything into a bag and keep it somewhere you can easily access during the day, and don’t forget it if you’re moving between ceremony and reception venues.

Event planners will tell you that being ready for all eventualities is the key to the success of an event. While you don’t need to bring every little item ‘just in case’ the worst happens, think about what you might need and create an emergency kit tailored to you. 

Some things you might want to include are items you will need for small emergencies like a small sewing kit, Band-Aids or clear nail polish for repairing a run in your pantyhose. You will also be wise to include straws so the bride and bridesmaids can have a drink without smudging their lipstick for photos. Putting in a granola or snack bar is perfect for when the bride is feeling hungry after the ceremony. You should also have some water in your kit, especially on hot days!
