Must-Have Wedding Day Emergency Kits

We know from experience - anything can happen at a wedding!  From a stain on your dress to forgotten deodorant, we’ve learned to expect the unexpected.  While we hope your big day goes off without a hitch, it’s best to be prepared!  A wedding day emergency kit can turn any spill, snag, or headache into an easily-fixed mishap.  Investing in a bridal emergency kit, if nothing else, will provide you with peace of mind.

Wedding Day Made Possible by Wedding Emergency Kits

What is a Wedding Emergency Kit?

Maybe you haven't heard of wedding day emergency kits, let alone know why you should have one.  A wedding emergency kit is a resource that includes supplies you may need on your wedding day.  Oftentimes, these products are ones that you completely forget, or don’t even know you’ll need.  Toiletries, medicine, and beauty supplies typically make up much of the kits!

So, why do you need a wedding emergency kit?  To put it simply, it’s likely that a few problems may arise throughout your wedding day.  Perhaps a bridesmaid’s strapless dress keeps slipping; that can be fixed with boob glue!  Maybe you need a quick snack before walking down the aisle; simply grab a granola bar from the bridal emergency kit.  If the groom forgot his shaving kit; there’ll be a razor to rescue him!  There are many potential small hiccups that seem impossible to prepare for.  Having a wedding emergency kit lessens that stress.

DIY Wedding Day Emergency Kit:

Maybe you didn’t find exactly what you were hoping for in the above wedding survival kits.  Or, perhaps you love to DIY!  Either way, we want to let you know what goes in a wedding emergency kit.  Here’s a list of 12 essentials you shouldn’t be caught without on the big day.

1. Boob Glue

Boob Glue for Weddings


When you're getting ready with your bridesmaids, several dress-related issues are likely to occur.  Boob Glue helps immensely!  It can help keep your cleavage in place, keep strapless bras from slipping, and more.  Boob Glue is the key to keeping dress problems at bay, so add it to your wedding day kit.

    2. Sewing Kit


    Sewing Kit for Wedding


    A sewing kit could turn out to be your strongest ally in the fight against wedding day elements. Make sure it includes sewing needles, safety pins, scissors, hem tape, and thread. (Tip: bring thread that matches your wedding colors!) The kit will come in handy if you come across snags and tear, or find any loose threads. Meanwhile, safety pins come in handy for keeping everything in place.

    3. Emergency Pre-Ceremony Snack

    With all the wedding day excitement and jitters, brides sometimes skimp on meals. Although you likely won’t want to fill up on food before your ceremony, it’s a good idea to have a snack ready. After all, you don’t want to worry about fainting or feeling sick during the ceremony. Having a granola bar on hand will make for the perfect light snack.

    4. Lipstick/Other Makeup

    Your wedding survival kit isn't complete without emergency makeup!  Think lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, and foundation.  All of these have the ability to smudge or run, and you’ll want to be photo-ready at all times.  It’s also not a bad idea to drink out of a straw to avoid wearing off lipstick while trying to hydrate.

    5. Clear Nail Polish/Super Glue

    Gorilla Super Glue


    An old trick for stopping runs in nylons and tights is to apply clear nail polish. Paint a quick coat on immediately after you find the tear. (This will prevent the tights from running further.) Super glue comes in handy for fixing broken shoes, jewelry, or other defective accessories.  Both are necessary additions to your wedding emergency kit.

    6. Bobby Pins/Hair Ties/Comb/Hairspray

    Whether you're getting your hair professionally done, or doing it yourself, you'll need some hair supplies.  Touchups are inevitable.  If it's windy, humid, or you accidentally get your hair caught on your ring - you'll be glad to have some bobby pins to fix it.

    7. Stain Removers

    Instant Stain Remover


    Throughout the day, you'll be eating, drinking, and running around in your dress.  At some point, it's likely to fall victim to a spill.  Be prepared by having a quick and easy way to make it less noticeable.  Tide-To-Go or SHOUT Wipe & Go are some great options to add to your wedding day emergency kit. 

    8. Pain Medications + Band-Aids

    Headaches and other body pains strike when you least expect it. Unfortunately, they won’t hold off just because it’s your wedding day. It’s a good idea to have pain relievers on hand in case someone feels under the weather. Band-Aids are good to have, too, in case of blisters or a small scrape.  Head to a local retailer and buy some travel-size products!

    9. Tissues

    Tissues for on-the-go


    In our everyday lives, we all know how helpful a travel pack of tissues can be. Make sure you stock up on your supply so it can be at your immediate disposal.  You'll probably be crying lots of happy tears!

    10. Body Spray/Perfume/Deodorant

    Assuming you want to smell as great as you look, add some deodorant and perfume to your wedding day kit. You'll be running around all day, so a reapplication will be needed. Plus, it's likely that a bridesmaid or two will forget to pack their own.

    11. Toothbrush & Floss

    Toothbrushes for on-the-go


    Keep your pearly whites fresh with floss, and the rest of your mouth clean with an on-the-go toothbrush. These items will keep you picture-perfect and kissable throughout the night.

    12. Tampons

    Because you’re a woman—and because you just never know—having sanitary supplies can mean life or death. (OK, maybe that’s extreme, but you get it!)  Even if you don't need them, it's likely that one of your girls will.

    Get your Wedding Survival Kit Ready!

    The months of planning your wedding can be stressful enough without having to worry the things that *could* go wrong.  That's why wedding day emergency kits are such a good idea!  If something small does come up on your big day, don’t sweat it.  Your wedding day is too special to worry about things that are beyond your control.  But, it’s never a bad idea to be prepared!

    Wedding Tattoos That Shows Commitment of Couples

    Hi, just came across this web page. Its a great illustration of how small to medium sized firms can use Awards based promotion to get their companies ranked on the 1st page of Google. Awards programmes offer many benefits to winners. After all they bring publicity and you can share the news of your win with your employees, clients, industry peers and target market as many times as you like. Additonally awards offer prestige and status, giving potential clients peace of mind that they are working with a reputable company. There are many types of awards programmes, including those that host awards ceremonies (and you pay per table), organisations that award only their members (and you pay for membership and sponsorship) and those that provide marketing materials. The latter is a great way for those who are unsure about the benefits of using corporate awards programmes because generally nominees and winners do not have to pay a penny to be involved. Winners often receives online recognition, usually with a reach much greater than their own marketing efforts can deliver. Other free benefits can include the use of an announcement. Most participants have the option to purchase additional marketing materials to further utilise their win, if they wish to, for use in social media campaigns, on their own website, email marketing campaigns or in customer newsletters.

    Wedding Tattoos That Shows Commitment of Couples

    Look at must have an e-mail page. Websites ranging bigger and
    sophistication originating from a local restaurant to a Fortune 500 company, have contact pages.
    Inside my current startup I have come across a variety of requests… from your pizza delivery guy
    letting us know he was in the front door to potential investors looking to communicate in with this management team.

    If you find yourself setting increase contact page (and finding the traffic volume of your local restaurant)
    you will possibly not want to think about how to take care of your contact requests when traffic increases.
    And you should.

    Take into consideration starting automation that alerts support, sales or another stakeholders within your company when an e-mail request comes through.

    You could make a dropdown field in an application form for kinds of contact requests.

    It is possible to build logic in many marketing automation platforms that sends email alerts to
    the suitable resource in your startup based on which request the viewer selects.

    I’m buried with contact requests after we launched beta.
    Like a cloud-based product I saw many product support requests.
    Therefore we mapped form submissions on our contact page to create
    support tickets in Zendesk.

    Ensure that you set up redundancies so contact requests (important ones!)
    don’t get lost in a single recipient’s inbox. You’ll be able to
    alert multiple recipients, create reminder emails, or trigger automatic replies to call requests with
    information that will solve their problem. This is a breeze to set up with all-in-one marketing platforms like HubSpot.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
    ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!
