What you Need in your Emergency Wedding Kit

Everything you Should Pack in a Wedding Emergency Bag

Something a lot of couples forget to do is pack a wedding emergency kit. You never know what’s going to happen, or who might be able to use something from the kit on your wedding day. My recommendation is to give this kit to someone at your wedding party. This keeps it close and accessible all day, but out of your hands.

  • Touch Up Makeup Kit (from the MUA)

You Need an SOS Weddig Kit - Based on Experience

I can’t tell you how many time’s I’ve come to a wedding and something small threatened to derail the day. 

Small hole in a bridesmaid’s dress from the zipper getting stuck? No problem, here’s my sewing kit! (yup, it’s more common than you think. Happens all the time)

Lose the pins to your boutonnieres? A safety pin will do the trick! (I’ve done this too many times!)

Twisted your ankle a little too hard from dancing? I gotchu! Advil or Tylenol is ready and I will hold your hand while you get bandaged up. (true story!) 

Be ready for anything, that way, nothing will actually go wrong! When I save the day by being prepared and alleviating stress, couples are always amazed.

No Stress - I've Got your Back

Now, don’t stress too much about this, because I do carry this exact emergency kit at every wedding. It doesn’t hurt to have more than one though.

I will pull out anything and everything from my wedding emergency kit to save the day. At the very least, It’ll be in my car, so I can rush out to grab whatever you need quickly.
