We are the type of wedding planners who keep a fully stocked emergency kit for a wedding day. If we use something in our kit, before we put the kit up we replace what was used. We do this religiously because we don’t know what will be needed for the next wedding. Not every wedding planner will have an emergency kit, and not every wedding will have a wedding planner. To be sure you have what you need, we have shared a few essentials we suggest you have with you for your wedding.
Have you ever had a headache and yet had an entire day’s agenda to fulfil? If yes, then multiply that feeling by 5. Wedding days are long and you want everyone at their best. You also don’t want your wedding party to have to leave for any reason, so something as simple as headache and pain medication can be preplanned to have on hand.
This catches the best of us off guard at times. Did you know that your monthly can be abnormal and brought on due to stress. Because you never know, we would suggest you have whatever your preference is on hand just to be safe, and to share that same suggestion with your bridal party.
A mint in the pocket has never caused anyone harm. Keeping some on hand to share with the wedding party may not be such a bad idea.
Of course, your stylist will have these. But unless they are staying for the entire wedding day, you may want to have some additional bobby pins on hand.
Things break. They split open. Sometimes they are too big. A sewing kit has come to the rescue of our couples a huge number of times. This may in fact be the most used item in our kit.
We would like to retract our previous statement. This is the most used item in our kit.
This will be an essential especially if your dress or your bridesmaids’ dresses are strapless.
These are so good for settling upset stomachs. Just having them on hand could really save the day.
It’s like an eraser for clothes. Just saying.
This is the most forgotten item, especially when it comes to gifts, checks, and guest books.
Some of your vendors will request payment on wedding day. We usually try and make sure all vendor payments are settled before the wedding, but there are times when the passing of money is unavoidable. If this is the case, you want to have an envelop to place it in so you aren’t passing cash on your wedding day.
These are our 10 suggestions for your own personal emergency kit. We could keep going, but we feel these are best to get you through your wedding day.
Until next time…
be sweet & happy planning!
