Bridal Emergency Kit

Friday, July 9, 2010

Imagine the button of one of the straps on your wedding dress coming loose and not having anything to fix it! That's exactly what happened to me. After taking photos with the bridal party, I noticed one of my straps kept falling. There wasn't a mini sewing kit around, but luckily, one of my bridesmaids was able to conjure up a safety pin and turn the straps into a halter. It was actually a much more flatering look. Thank God for creative and resourceful friends!

You never know what might be needed the day of, so preparing a handy emergency kit for the bride and bridal party might not be a bad idea.

Here's a list I put together of a few essential items that can definitely come to the rescue. Is there anything else that you'd like to add?

oil blotting papers - reduce excess facial shine

hairspray - tame those unruly flyaways

comb & bobby pins - keep the 'do together

deodarant - keep it fresh

mints - keep your breath smelling like a candy cane

perfume or body spray - keep you smellin like a lady

hand sanitizer - kill those nasty germs incase you can't wash your hands

compact mirror - always a good idea to be close-up ready

bottled water - keep yourself hydrated

straws - don't mess your lips up

healthy snack - for energy

lipgloss - touch up your pucker
flip flops - do your feet a favor

band aids - a must for blisters or cuts

tissue - gotta have something to soak up your tears of joy

cotton swabs - great for fixing eye make up smears

tylenol - incase you need to get rid of a headache

antiacids - don't let gas or heartburn ruin your day

super glue - incase you need to glue a thinestone back on

safety pins - because you never know what might need a fixin!
