An Emergency Kit for the Wedding Day Helps to Keep Worries Away!

In last week's blog "Wedding Dress Stain Fixes (Just In Case)" we mentioned that you should have a wedding day emergency kit with you on your special day. This week Angelus Bridal has decided to go into a bit more detail about what that is and what you should pack inside it. The more prepared you are, the less you'll have to worry about, and the easier it will be to simply enjoy your wedding day! 

This wedding day emergency kit will be filled to the brim with all kinds of useful things, some of which will definitely come in handy, and others that you hopefully will not need at all. This is just piece of mind for you that no matter what crazy things the day may bring, you'll be ready for it all! You'll want to adjust this list to fit your personal needs, but here are some basics that should be included. 

  • White cotton towels or cloths:  great for dabbing spills on a white dress
  • Baby Powder:  can help remove some dress stains & keep them from spreading
  • White chalk:  can work like baby powder or occasionally cover a small stain
  • Stain Removal Pen or Wipes
  • Cotton balls & cotton swabs:  also great for dabbing stains on a white dress
  • Tape:  Double-sided, masking, or duct tape - these are a quick fix to a broken hem if there is no time left to sew it. 
  • Super glue: same reason as the tape and can hold a loose button on. 
  • Small sewing kit:  make sure you have thread in your dress color, the bridesmaids' dress colors, and the guys' suits.  
  • Safety Pins: for fashion emergencies and also good to have in case boutonniere pins are missing
  • Lighter:  both for candles and it can fix a fraying hem.
  • Lint brush
  • Extra earring backs
  • Nail clippers & file
  • Facial blotting paper
  • Mirror:  for makeup checks in case the room you are in right before walking down the aisle doesn't have a mirror

  • Kleenex
  • Moist towelettes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Bobby pins:  for every hair color in your wedding party
  • Clear nail polish:  perfect for stopping runs in hosiery, fixing chipped nails, and even buttons that are about to fall off.  
  • Nail polish that matches your manicure:  just in case a touch-up is needed.  
  • Hand lotion:  put this on before you walk down the aisle to help the ring slide on easily.
  • Sunblock & bug spray:  if the ceremony is outdoors
  • Feminine hygiene products:  in case you or one of the girls needs them.
  • First aid kit
  • Basic medicines:  pain reliever, allergy medicine, antacid...
  • Gum & mints
  • Bottled water
  • Snacks:  In all of the hustle, you may not have time for a real meal.  Have granola bars or something similar handy for a quick bite. 
  • Straws:  keeps your lipstick from smearing when you drink!
  • Chargers
  • Extra batteries
  • Pens and paper

More than likely, you already have a lot of the items for your wedding day emergency kit laying around the house, and the rest are inexpensive and easy to find. Even if they don't get used, it's all stuff that can be used later, so nothing will be wasted.

Take it from us at Angelus Bridal & Formals, it is always best to be prepared. Not only will it save you from possible disasters, but you'll also be a lot more relaxed knowing that you are ready for anything. A relaxed and happy bride is free to let her natural beauty shine.
