Emergency Kit Essentials

It's the day of your wedding and your to-do list is complete. You have spent months planning and thinking about your big day but even with the best plans, things may pop-up that you don't expect. A good bride is always prepared for the unexpected, so don't forget a "Day-of Emergency Kit." 

A "Day-of Emergency Kit" is a small bag of emergency items so you can take care of any of any unexpected things that might happen during the day. 

Here are a few suggestions of what to include in your Emergency Kit:
-Bobby pins
-Hair spray
-Hair brush
-Lipstick/Lip gloss
-Small mirror
-Tampons/Pads/Panty Liners
-Deodorant or Body spray
-Gum/Breath mints
-Dental floss
-Shout wipes/Tide pens
-Small sewing kit with safety pins
-Fashion tape
-Nail file
-Nail polish (in the color the Bride is wearing) and clear nail polish
-Small pair of scissors
-Flip Flops

These are just a few things to think about when packing an Emergency Kit. It's a great idea to let your Maid of Honor be responsible for it during the day. You could even ask her to help you put together the kit so you can focus on other things. Just make sure she knows what to include. 
Here are a few more suggestions on what to include:
-Contact solution
-White chalk to cover any stains that you can't get out
-Straws to drink out of so you don't mess up your lipstick
-Static cling spray
-Lint roller
-Snacks/Bottled water
-List of vendors contact numbers
-Readings/Vows for ceremony
