Your Big Day Is No Time For Emergencies

Repair of a wedding dress

When trying to prepare for your wedding day, there are countless to-do lists and details you dare not to forget. Unfortunately, even the best laid plans go awry from time to time. In order to keep additional stress at bay, make sure you are prepared for the unexpected by having an emergency kit at the ready.

With everything you’ve planned and are prepared for, rest assured, something may pop up that could ruin one of the most memorable days of your life. Rather than let the unforeseen ruin your day, arm yourself with an emergency kit no bride would be without!

The Unexpected

While planning your perfect day, the last thing you think of is beauty blunders, fashion fails or other major mishaps. To remedy these problems as they present, there are essentials you can have in your kit to fix them as they arise.

When making your emergency bag, be sure to include a sewing kit. You never know when a button will pop off or a shapewear adjustment will require attention. You can avoid last-minute stress and running errands by being prepared.

What to Include

In addition to a sewing kit, there are several other items to include in your emergency kit. No one expects a heel to break moments before walking down the aisle. Without time to run to the corner store, the day isn’t ruined and no one will be wobbly because you have superglue at the ready. Additional items to include:

  • Safety pins
  • Tweezers
  • Q-Tips
  • Scissors
  • Chargers for electronic devices
  • Tissues
  • Deodorant
  • Pain Killers
  • Earring backs

In short, you want to have any items that will get you through any mishap. Maybe you and some of your closest friends had a celebratory drink the night before. In all the excitement, you or other members of your bridal party may have had one too many. By having pain killers, bananas, electrolyte drinks and antacids on hand, you can make that unexpected hangover more manageable.

When & Who

With all the preparations, planning and the overwhelming culmination as your big day draws near, it’s best to not leave creating your bag of preparedness to the last minute. In fact, you should start putting things together about a month before the wedding.

You are already trying to remember so many details, the last thing you need is to add another chore to the list of things you have to make sure are in place. When you have about a month before the wedding, you have less chance of forgetting an essential item.

Once you have everything put together and set aside, the next thing to figure out is who you are going to put in charge of making sure your kit is there when you need it. Your best bet is to task someone you know you can rely on. Typically your best choice would be your maid of honor, family member or close friend. The most important thing to consider when deciding who you choose is to make sure they’re trustworthy and dependable. Let’s face it, you can make the most inclusive kit that covers every possible eventuality, but unless you have it when you need it, none of the contents matter.

Your wedding day is your day to shine. You’ve spent countless hours making painstaking choices to be sure your big day is a reflection of your personality and relationship with your soon-to-be spouse. By making sure you are ready to handle anything that threatens your perfect day, you’ll make sure you have the best memories to last a lifetime!
