Must-Have Items to Pack in Your Emergency Wedding Kit

Congratulations! If you’re already considering smaller details like the contents of your emergency wedding kit, that must mean the big day is coming up soon! You must be buzzing and giddy, but also – understandably – freaking out.

Whether or not you’re the primary planner of your wedding, there are always a million things for both the bride and groom to keep track of throughout the day. The priority, of course, is that you’re able to fully enjoy the day for the beautiful occasion that it is.

What to Pack in Your Emergency Wedding Kit

A great way to avoid any undue stress or distractions is to have an emergency wedding kit on hand. This can be prepared weeks in advance so any tiny problems that arise will have an immediate solution. The ideal kit will keep you dancing, drinking champagne, and celebrating with the ones you love without interruption.

Regardless of your theme, location, or venue, the vast majority of the must-have emergency items are super easy to find at your local drug store or on Amazon.

Here’s everything you may need so you can get hitched without a hitch:

  • Lint roller
  • Bobby pins
  • Tide-to-go

Even on the most perfectly executed of wedding days, people will spill stuff on themselves. Makeup, coffee, food – it’s inevitable. Have your Tide-to-Go pen at the ready.

  • Chapstick
  • A sewing kit (or three!)
  • Safety pins
  • Bandaids for ladies’ heels

Alternatively, you could splurge a little more for guaranteed, long-lasting heel comfort by getting a pack of cushioned heel slip grips.

  • Tampons
  • Hair brush
  • Hair spray

If you want to go the extra mile and win the award for Most Prepared Bride, you could stock spray options for different hair types and styles.

For fierce updos and ladies with thick hair: Bed Head Hard Head Hair Spray

For softer, loose curls and ladies with fine hair: TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Volumizing Spray

  • Baby wipes
  • Beano

(or any similar product like Gas-X or Tums)

The food at your wedding will of course be delicious, so be prepared when the guests overeat and need some relief!

  • Advil
  • Black socks
  • Bottle opener
  • Sunscreen
  • Bugspray

If your wedding is especially woodsy, go with extra-strength: Off! Deep Woods

If you’re worried about the scent of standard bug spray, try going natural – keep the bugs away and smell lemony fresh: Oil of lemon eucalyptus

Insider tip: Bounce dryer sheets are scientifically proven to keeps bugs away.

The last and absolutely crucial thing to have at your wedding at all times:

  • FUN

A well-planned wedding is ideal, of course, but it’s also supposed to be a day full of joy and lifelong memories. Don’t let the small things distract you from that!

It’s easy to get swept up in the all the details, but the bottom line is even if you’re missing any of of the items on this list, your wedding will still be one of happiest days of your life.
