One of the things we provide for our clients on their big day is a wedding day emergency kit full of things they may have forgotten. With each wedding, we walk in while the gals are getting ready, and almost always the bride (or bridesmaid/mom) says that they are so thankful because they DID forget something. Now this is only the start of the day!

At my own wedding I didn’t forget anything because I had already prepared this kit, but being able to supply this for our clients has been one of the best extra-added benefits that they aren’t always expecting. We try to cover all kinds of things, from beauty products and bobby pins, to tissues and drops for itchy or dry eyes. Everyone is getting pretty, or crying from joy, we have found that these are the most popular items in the kit. The kit we give to our Enchanting Brides includes over 100 items, let us know if you would like to see more ideas.

Since weddings are such a big part of Wedding Wednesday, I thought a sample of what we provide in our emergency kit would be a great to share with my fellow blogging brides-to-be! This list is not everything we supply, but it is a good overview. Hopefully it will guide you in the right direction.

  • Bobby Pins- because it’s always helpful to have these on hand, especially if you are not have a hair stylist come in. We like to have these in blond and brown. In fact, when one of our brides arrived to the reception, some of her hair was already falling out. We grabbed the emergency kit, stuck some bobby pins in her hair, and it lasted all night!
  • Hair spray- there are a few of these because you have to manage those flyways throughout the night!
  • Sunscreen-this is something I forgot myself. Silly, right? With an outdoor wedding, it’s smart to have some sunscreen at least on your arms.
  • Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ Multi-Symptom- we love this product because it solves many problems on the wedding day. Is the mother of the bride crying as she helps her daughter into her dress? Maybe one of the bridesmaids has red eyes because the rehearsal dinner had an open bar? Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ Multi-Symptom does the trick. We recommend getting this specific type because the drops are preservative free, in a multi-dose bottle, and they are convenient, provide relief for up to 12 hours (wedding days are normally less than 10!) and easy to use.

  • Tissues- for those happy tears!
  • Spray Deodorant- this is super helpful because several people can use it if they need to without touching their bodies
  • Straws- you don’t want to mess up your makeup as you sip on your mimosas! There are so many options for fun straws now, get some that match your theme or colors
  • Granola bars- it’s really important to make sure everyone, especially the bride, has something in their stomach throughout the day. Granola bars are quick, easy and don’t make a mess (depending on the kind you get!)
  • Nail polish remover & light pink polish- we like to provide both of these just-in-case one of the bridesmaids either forgets to have her nails done, or chips a nail before photos. It has come in handy many times.
  • Notecards- for special “thank you’s” tips, or a letter to your groom! Did you forget to write a little something, maybe your florist brought extra flowers and you want to give her a handwritten card, it would be great to have these available.

Don’t forget to make sure you think about the presentation of the kit as well. For our clients we use a pretty box or a cute bag.

    These are all great ideas! I know that even though it’ll be October, my pale self will probably still need sunscreen!

      Thank you!! Good thing I know your wedding planner, and some will be there without you even having to think about it 😉

    You are the best. I would never think of some of these items which means brides don’t either and there you’ll be ready to step in and help! THIS is why you are in the wedding business- it’s all about the details!

      Thank you!! There are so many little things that brides don’t think about (heck- I didn’t!) that we always add to the box. It’s amazing the different uses for things, too!

    That emergency kit looks so great! Our wedding planner had one and we used several things out of there, including the sewing kit when my 11-year-old sister ripped her dress 2 hours before the ceremony!

      Thank you! It’s so helpful to have a box to drop off to our clients the morning of the wedding and then they don’t need to find us throughout the day if they need something. Oh my goodness! Thankfully you were able to quickly sew it back up!

    This is such a fantastic idea to do for your clients!! My MOH made an emergency kit for me as a shower present, and it came in SO HANDY during the wedding!

      Thank you!! It’s so nice to have something to give them in the morning and also saves them time if they need something small throughout the getting ready time.

    These are all great things to have in a wedding emergency kit! The bobby pins and hairspray are definite lifesavers!

      I don’t know how but bobby pins always disappear, so brides are normally really thankful to have some extras.

    I gave each of my daughters attendants a train case filled with these types of things. I included safety pins, makeup wipes, lip balm, small deodorant, Bobby pins, hair ties, clear nail polish, nail polish remover wipes, little fans for the outdoor pictures, band aids, and so much more. I still see them using the cases for their makeup and stuff.
