Why do I need emergency Wedding Day items
Be prepared with your emergency bridal kit. Most brides have at least one terrifying dream before they get married. Whether it’s showing up to the chapel in the wrong wedding dress, fainting at the altar, suffering the worst hair day on record, or getting in a fight with mum, we all have our own unique fears and insecurities. No wedding is perfect, and something is bound to go wrong. Reasonable expectations can help you manage this with style and grace. Rather than being reduced to a sobbing puddle of tulle.
What to put in your emergency bridal kit.
Of course, as with all things in life, the prepared just do better when things go awry. We suggest putting together a bag of emergency supplies so that a minor crisis doesn’t become a full-scale emergency. Your needs will vary, of course, so if you have a medical issue or other concern that frequently becomes a problem, pack appropriate items. At minimum, we suggest putting the following in your bag:
Makeup remover towelettes : For a make up emergency. There will be little emotional moments that will sneak up on you throughout the day. And make up may need to be reapplied. Towelettes are also great for removing small stains on your wedding dress after you’ve dropped that yummy little snack on yourself just before heading to the church.
Make up for an emergency reapplication.
Hopefully your makeup artist has applied waterproof eye makeup. Very important for all those happy tears that will possibly be shed on the day.
Lipstick and lip gloss: Your lips will get quite dry on the day with the combination of possibly not being as hydrated as you should be. All that talking and kissing can dry out your lips.
Lipstick will need to be reapplied throughout the day too.
Sanitary items: Because you are a women and so are all your bridesmaids whom sometimes aren’t as prepared as they would be normally.
Unusual emergency bridal kit items that can save the day.
Clear nail polish: Not just for your nails but very handy if you have a heavily beaded wedding dress that has been caught on something during the day and you find yourself leaving a trail of beads everywhere. A touch of nail polish is a quick temporary fix to stop the beads falling off. Also great to stop a run in your stockings.
Hair spray and extra bobby pins
You may need these throughout the course of the day especially if its windy or you have fine hair in an updo. Hair spray is also a great anti static spray. So if your bridesmaids dresses are clinging a quick spay inside the dress should do the trick.
First aid emergency
Hopefully you wont need this one. But if you are taking medication be sure to take it with you.
Band-aids are always handy especially if you have new Wedding Shoes. Its a long day so if you are planning to wear a high heel possibly pop in a pair of comfortable ballet flats for the reception.
Pain reliever, such as ibuprofen. Sometimes in all the fluster of getting ready you can forget to drink enough water add a few alcoholic bevys and you have a dehydration headache. Or even just stress may bring on headache so be prepared.
Safety pins: Handy for all sorts of things. Everything from a broken bra strap to pining up your petticoat.
Several snacks, ideally high in protein and calories to keep you from fainting from exhaustion and hunger
A copy of your vows, a list of the order of events, and any other information you might need to remember where you need to be and what you should do at what time.
Consider the emergencies you have had in the past—a run in panty hose? And plan for the worst. It’s unlikely to come to fruition, but knowing that you are prepared for even the worst case scenario can ease your mind on this all-important day.
Delegate all of the above.
