Your wedding day is almost here! You have the dress/tuxedo, your shoes, and jewelry and accessories. The entire wedding party has had their final fittings and scheduled pickup of their tuxedoes and dresses. All of your vendors have been confirmed and everything is set and ready to go!  You even put a few items into your wedding day emergency kit.

WHEW! You are ready!  Or …. are you?

Be Prepared!

(Yes, I am a former Girl Scout troop leader!)

Are you prepared? What happens if your zipper gets stuck? Or even worse, if you spill something on your gown, shirt, or tuxedo? What will you do if the flowers you glued a month ago to your pew decorations fall off right before the ceremony starts?

Here are 10 Must Haves for your Wedding Day Emergency Kit:

  1. Bee’s wax
  2. Vinegar & Dawn, and a small bottle to mix the two
  3. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  4. Safety and straight pins
  5. Scissors
  6. Thread
  7. Advil, Tylenol and/or Aspirin
  8. Deodorant
  9. Band Aids
  10. Gas X or Tums


Expect the Unexpected!

This list is just a small sampling of the nearly 60 items I have in my emergency kit – which is available for all of my brides & grooms to use on their wedding day. Don’t find yourself unprepared on your wedding day – hire an experienced wedding planner!
