What to Pack in Your Wedding Day Survival Kit
Weddings are happy celebrations full of joy and laughter, but they are also stressful and busy. If you have ever been a bridesmaid or a bride the term wedding day survival kit will not be new to you. It is a bag of essentials that may be needed in the case of emergencies because no matter how much you plan the details, a hiccup might occur.
Below is a list of the essentials you must have in your kit to be prepared for any contingencies.
- A mini sewing kit that contains sewing tools like scissors, needles, thread, buttons, and safety pins
- .It is advisable to carry extra undergarments you might not know when the need for them would arise.
- You can also add Q-tips & makeup removers in case you have an eyeliner smudge emergency.
- Blotting papers would also be useful for drying oils and sweat on the face.
- Tampons/panty liners: this is a must-carry. Even if you don’t need one, someone else will.

- Medicine (pain reliever, allergy medicine, antacid) these are just precautionary steps to take in case any situation arises due to stress or other factors.
- Novelettes: this is for freshening up while on the move.

- Extra earring backs: they are so tiny that they can get easily misplaced so just carry extras in case the need arise.
- Hair elastics, bobby pins, hair spray etc… they may come in handy.
- Alcohol: to calm the bride when she’s jittery, you can get all those small ones they serve in airplanes.
