What You Need in Your Wedding Day Emergency Kit
Despite how you imagine your wedding day will play out, there is bound to be some sort of emergency (sorry, but it's the truth). A strapless dress that won't stay up, a flyaway hair that won't stay put, or a last minute touch up of your eyebrows may all need attention on your wedding day and you'll want to be prepared! Have you thought about a wedding day emergency kit?

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.
Fashion tape (you'll thank me later)
Stain remover pen
Makeup remover wipes
Bobby pins & hair ties
Small brush or comb
Tampons or pads
Adhesive bandages (Band-Aids)
Sole inserts for heels
A healthy snack
Who Should Hold It?
I recommend giving this to your maid of honor to hold onto or another trusted friend who will be in the "getting ready" room with you and your bridesmaids. This way, you know you have it if needed, but don't have to keep track of it while you're trying to get ready for the wedding.
