What To Put In Your Emergency Wedding Kit

When thinking if what to put in your emergency kit, sit there and visualise yourself going through the day - just as you would when you retrace your steps looking for your lost keys!
Start from head to toe -

  • Brush, comb, hairspray, hairpins and accessories, blowdryer
  • Your face - all make-up items for re-applying, sunblock, tweezers, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, breath mints/spray and mouthwash
  • Perfume and underarm deodorant
  • Nail polish, nail glue and a nail file
  • Tampons and/or pads - even if you don't expect to have your period on the day

Then there are the small but inevitable emergencies that may crop up - small tears or stains in clothing

  • A small sewing kit with scissors and thread to match the gowns/suits of the bridal party
  • Two spare pairs of stockings
  • Hand towelettes in case hands get unexpectedly dirty
  • Hemming tape
  • Matches
  • Safety pins
  • Small folding scissors
  • Tissues
  • Wrinkle-out spray
  • White chalk (to cover lipstick mishaps on your gown)
  • Extra studs and cufflinks
  • Duct tape, masking tape or epoxy
  • Extra earring backs
  • Clear nail polish (for stocking runs)
  • Corsage pins
  • A bottle of water
  • Stain remover

Think about any medical mishaps that may occur? Remember to include things to help the nerves on the day

  • Indigestion remedies
  • Panadol
  • Any prescription medicines you may be taking
  • Smelling salts
  • A small first-aid kit
  • Eye drops

Don't forget 'something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue'. This may seem outdated and rather superstitious - but wouldn't you rather be safe than sorry? Anyhow, it's lots of fun to carry out this age-old tradition.

  • Something old: A piece of family or antique jewelry, your mother's or grandmother's veil, an antique handkerchief
  • Something new: Lingerie, your gown, a different shade of lipstick, shoes
  • Something borrowed: Hair accessories, your sister's hand bag, your best friend's pearl necklace
  • Something blue: A garter, flowers in your bouquet, ribbons on the bouquet or in your hair

From laddered stockings to feeling faint, these essential items can help you get past minor wedding-day trip-ups with ease.
