Bridal Emergency Kit

This is an important PSA for brides (and bridesmaids) everywhere: something will go wrong on your wedding day. As a wedding planner/day-of coordinator, it is my job to 1) prevent as many things from going wrong as possible, and 2) be there with a solution if something does go wrong. If you don’t have a planner or a day-of coordinator, it’s a really good idea to assemble a bridal emergency kit with some essentials that can save the day in a pinch.

BHLDN has an amazing kit that comes in an adorable zipper case meant. They are a fantastic bridesmaid’s gift and they are a cute little present for the bride, too.

These kits include: deodorant towelettes, stain removers, nail polish remover, pain relievers, dental floss, clear nail polish, lip balm, breath fresheners, hair spray, antacids, tampons, adhesive bandages, mending kits, safety pins, double-sided tape, clear elastics, earring backs, emery boards, bobby pins, wedding bands, blotting tissues, and facial tissues.

If you choose not to buy a pre-made emergency kit, I would suggest making your own. If you have a wedding planner or a day-of coordinator, ask them what supplies they have in case of emergencies, as most will bring along a kit. If you don’t have a coordinator, or if yours does not have an emergency kit, here is what I would suggest including when you assemble yours:

Breath mints
Comb/brush
Hair spray
Makeup for touch-ups
Mirror
Nail file
Tampons/sanitary napkins
Tweezers
Tide stain pens
Mini scissors
Tape (Scotch tape, hem tape, fashion tape)
Safety pins
Mini sewing kit
Moist towelettes
Bobby pins
Earring backs
Eye drops
Aspirin/Tylenol/Ibuprofen
Dental floss
Corsage pins
Clear nail polish
Band-Aids
Quick snacks (granola bars, etc.)
Water bottles
Sunblock
Deodorant
Nail polish remover
Lip balm
Antacids
Blotting tissues

Q-tips
Colgate Wisp mini-toothbrushes
