As I prepare for a wedding next weekend, I am going through what I call the “wedding day emergency kit”, making sure I have stocked up on everything I might need. I say “might” because this kit is really for things that may or may not come up; all the just-in-case scenarios. Afterall, part of my job is to be prepared for anything.

To give you an idea of what I carry with me on the wedding day, here is a glimpse into my emergency kit:

  • Dental floss
  • Tissue paper
  • Lip gloss
  • Pens
  • Mints
  • Markers
  • Tide to go
  • Spray bottle for floral
  • Pads and tampons
  • Cable ties
  • Tape
  • Ibuprofen
  • Mirror
  • Playing cards (for kids)
  • Shoe shine
  • Lotion
  • Bobby pins
  • Safety pins
  • Blister treatment
  • Cotton swabs
  • Nail clipper
  • Bandaids
  • Extra heel wedge
  • Body spray
  • Curling iron
  • Is there anything else you think I should add? I am always open to suggestions! Sometimes I also carry an extra aisle runner, tulle and ribbon in my car (weird right, but you never know!)
