One thing I loved about getting married at my parents’ house was that I didn’t have to worry about forgetting any wedding day essentials. If you’re NOT getting hitched at home, it’s wise to put together an emergency kit to ensure that you look your best, no matter what curve balls are thrown your way. (Gift Idea: Put them all in a cute case labeled “Wedding Day Survival Kit” and give a kit to each of your bridesmaids with a thank you card!)
Check out these must-haves for the big day:
Fashion Tape: don’t let a plunging neckline turn into a wardrobe malfunction
Safety Pins: straps break, bustles fall… keep a few different sizes on hand, just in case
Cinnamon Mints: did you know that cinnamon is a better bad-breath buster than mint?
Clear Nail Polish: stops runs in panty hose, keeps rhinestones in place if they start falling off your shoes, keeps nails from chipping
Bobby Pins: for stray hairs
Lip Balm: go for balm instead of gloss, so your lips look lustrous without being sticky
Oil Absorbing Sheets: to keep your face looking fresh in photos (and in real life!)
Bandaids: just in case those gorgeous wedding shoes of yours start to give you blisters
Q-tips: easily fix smudgy eye makeup, spray with hairspray to keep brows or stray hairs in place
Deodorant: dancing will make you sweat, I promise!
Wet Wipes: After the ceremony, I got dirt all over the back of my dress (from taking photos at a barn) and we were able to get it all off with wet wipes! So handy…
