Emergency Wedding Day Essentials


A lot of time and energy goes into planning a wedding. As the bride-to-be, it can be easy to forget about yourself while making sure everything else runs smoothly on your wedding day. It can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be! So, let’s discuss some wedding day essentials to throw into your “Emergency Wedding Day Kit” to avoid any last-minute stress.

Believe it or not, your hands are a focal point on your wedding day. Not only will your wedding guests ask to see your new wedding bands, but your photographer will somehow include them into your pictures as well. Throw in some clear gloss polish and a nail file to your kit to fix any scraps and add some extra shine on the big day. If you plan on getting your hair done by a professional, you’ll want to make sure you have a strong hold hairspray for those loose strands and to keep everything intact. This is essential for quick touch-ups throughout your big day.

Furthermore, make sure you pack a hydrating and energizing moisturizer, like this one here, to use first thing in the morning. After getting your makeup done, be sure to include a few makeup essentials in your emergency kit, such as deodorant, eyeliner, lipstick or gloss, bronzer and powder for those quick fixes in the bathroom. You deserve the additional glam!

There is no doubt that you’re going to be moving around a lot in your dress. Pack a comfortable strapless bra that is the perfect fit and will keep everything in place throughout your special day. Additionally, you should be prepared for your guests. In case someone in the wedding party gets a small tear in their dress or suit before the ceremony, a travel sewing kit is a necessary item for your emergency kit. This sewing kit, here, includes every color thread imaginable.

From getting your hair and makeup done to taking pictures, it’s easy to forget to eat. No one wants the bride or her wedding party to pass out while they’re walking down the aisle (or to be hangry!). Wherever you plan on getting ready, have some energy boosting granola bars, fruits and veggies, and energy drinks easily available for everyone.

Weddings can be emotional for everyone, not just for the bride and groom. Think about the first look, walking down the aisle and the heart-warming speeches. Happy tears will be flowing all over the place.. Not only will you be glad to have tissues on hand, but your guests will be praising you for having tissues readily available for them, too. Check out these custom tissue packs to include on your special day.

Just in case, you’ll want to include some of your own personal items into your emergency kit. This includes comfortable shoes while dancing, your phone charger to see all the posts using your wedding hashtag, mints for all of those sweet kisses, and pain relievers because you never know what tomorrow will bring. Imagine your big day from start to finish and think about what’s most important to you, so you can prepare accordingly.

There’s a lot of preparation that goes on before the ceremony itself, so it’s only human to forget something. If you take the extra time to include these emergency wedding day essentials, you’re bound to have a stress-free day and it will allow you to live in the moment!
