When it comes to your wedding day, if there’s any one thing you should brace yourself for, it’s to expect the unexpected. Sometimes gettin’ hitched doesn’t go off without a hitch, but don’t stress, y’all! The best thing you can do in order to avoid disaster on your big day is to come prepared-- with your very own wedding emergency kit, of course. Here are our top ten items to include in your 9-1-1 bag.
A Sewing Kit
Buttons and zippers and lace, oh my! It’s always handy to have a sewing kit on hand for those last minute adjustments. Missing buttons? No worries! Fix it in a stitch with a needle and thread. Floppy belt? Sew it on, girl!
Mother Nature runs on her own time, and you don’t want to be caught unprepared. As much as we all wish it wouldn’t, our period always manages to show up at the most inconvenient of times. It’s always a good idea to have a tampon or two handy, just in case.
Nobody wants to deal with a headache on their big day. Pack some pain killers to crush any stress-induced aches (or to help cope with the pain from those fabulous shoes). If your belly’s doing flips and it’s not from the butterflies, Tums are handy to have around.
Baby powder is the stuff of miracles. Got greasy hair? Baby powder. Thighs chafing? Baby powder. Shoes giving you blisters? Baby. Powder. Is there anything baby powder can’t do?
If you’re anything like me, you’re clumsy-- and that clumsiness is always magnified when there’s fun to be had. Bandaids are a true lifesaver. Another tip? Moleskin bandage can be trimmed to cover any problem areas-- say buh-bye to friction blisters!
Gappage happens, especially on strapless or low-backed gowns. Grab some fashion tape and stick that stubborn fabric down.
Tide To-Go Stick
Don’t fret about dropped food or spilled wine. A Tide To-Go stick is like having a magic wand up your sleeve! You’ll get any stain out in no time-- because let’s be honest, who wants to spend any more time than they have to dealing with stains when there’s a party to be had?
Lots of selfies to be taken, lots of Snapchats to be sent… before you know it, Instagram’s drained your battery! Invest in a portable phone charger, and you’ll never have to be without your phone.
You never know when an ID will be necessary, and it’s our belief that it’s better to be over prepared, especially where the law is concerned!
Every girl understands what a pain it is to pack earrings. How is it possible to lose so many earring backs? Be sure to bring extra in your emergency kit bag-- this is one item that we can guarantee will come in handy.
