What Is a Wedding Day Emergency Kit?

A wedding day emergency kit is exactly what it sounds like: a collection of items that you may need to solve any problems you encounter on your wedding day. It's such a great way to feel prepared for any disaster that my take place on your big day.

Why Do You Need One?

There are a lot of different things that could go wrong on your wedding day that you may be totally unprepared for if you don't think about them in advance. A rip in your dress, a last-minute headache, and a missing earring back are all problems that could arise on your big day. A wedding day emergency kit is there to solve any and all of these issues that arise, letting you relax and avoiding excess worry.

What Should I Include?

It's totally up to you what to put into your wedding day emergency kit. Consider all of the "what if" situations and include items to solve those potential problems.
