Creating A Wedding Day Emergency Kit For the Wedding Party
You’ve planned for this day for months and you are sure that everything will go perfectly. But let’s face it, even with the best planning emergencies happen and things can go wrong unexpectedly. The best thing to do is to prepare for these unknown surprises by having a wedding day emergency kit for each member of the wedding party. We have put together a list of the most important things for each kit to have.
BRIDE AND BRIDESMAIDS
Sewing Kit – a sewing kit can be invaluable to the bridal party the day of the wedding. You will want to have a kit that includes sewing needles, safety pins, a small pair of scissors, hem tape, and thread so you can quickly fix any last-minute snags and tears or trim any loose thread.
Clear Nail Polish – using clear nail polish is a handy trick used to stop runs in pantyhose and tights. You want to try to get a coat of the polish on over the run as soon as you notice it, and this will help prevent the run from spreading any further. Of course, you can also use this to smooth out any last-minute chips in your nail polish.
White Chalk – this is another great trick that comes in handy if you get a stain on your wedding dress and need to cover it quickly.
Bobby Pins, Hair Ties, and Hairspray – getting that perfect wedding day hairstyle can be difficult and keeping it looking that way all day and night can be even more difficult. Having these hair accessories on hand will help you quickly fix any hair that falls out of place.
Makeup – you don’t need to have your entire makeup bag with you, but you will want to have a few of the essentials for touchups throughout the day. It’s a good idea to carry your lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, and powder with you for quick touchups.
Perfume – you will want to smell as good as you look for this special day so don’t forget to pack your favorite perfume.
Tampons and/or Pads – being a woman you know that you should never be unprepared for your period, because it usually decides to start at the worst possible moment.
