To the Rescue
A simple emergency kit can save the day.
Heaven forbid something go awry during your ceremony or reception. To deal with stressful situations, wedding planners keep a bridal emergency kit close at hand. Double-stick tape, stain remover and bobbie pins are the most common items they use to fix snags.
Our planners have happily listed a few more emergency items for you. If you don’t have a planner, put your maid or matron of honor in charge of the kit. Most things are available at Happy Harry’s. Says Samantha Diedrick of Secretariat Wedding and Event Planning, “Hope for the best, plan for the worst, be the one to stay calm and assess your option and take care of it.”
Now, stock the following:
Gum and mints
Comb and brush
Clear nail polish (for stocking runs)
Nail file and polish in your shade
Straws (for protecting lipstick while drinking)
Baby powder (removing spills from gowns)
Contact lens solution
A small snack
Charged cell phone
Camera for candids during dressing
Vendors’ phone numbers
Extra flowers for the bouquet
