Wedding Day Emergency Kit


A little while ago, someone posted a topic about wedding planning advice. Since I cannot find that thread ANYWHERE, I'm starting a new one with what I wanted to add :)

Emergency Kit Bags are must for a wedding day. Since my best friend is getting married in just 3 weeks, I've started planning what we'll need for a spring/summer day wedding. Here is our list:

Puffy make-up brush
Texture spray/non-aerosol hairspray/spray gel (Using this with a puffy make up brush is good for brushing down fly-aways without being too heavy or having noticable white flecks)
Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing pads
Contact solution
Double sided tape/hemming tape
Mini sewing kit
Granola bars, chewy fruit snacks, almonds
Water bottles
Bobby pins
Straws (for drinking without messing up lipstick)
Tide to Go
Mini mirror
Earing backs
Nail file
Hand sanitizer
Powder (for shine)
Heels back-up (if someone is wearing heels and thinks their feet may get sore. Damn Heels, anyone?)
Crazy glue

Has anyone else had experience with this? What you add? The only other wedding I've been in was my own and I think my bridesmaids took care of it all!

great list!!!

The only thing I can think of to add to this is the lipstick, powder, blush and eyeliner the bride is wearing to do touch-ups (especially before posing for the photographer). When applying eyeshadow in the morning be sure to use a good base 'cuz its really not possible to touch that up amidst a busy day.

Got it!

Oh yes, of course the make-up is a must! I sent out a Facebook message to all the bridesmaids (and the bride of course even though she is not obligated to add anything, I'm making it up to US to purchase/add the items ourselves). But I assume everyone (and I know the bride will for sure) will have their own purses with their make-up inside so I told them this will NOT include make-up since we'll have different make-up.
