How to: Create the Perfect Wedding Emergency Kit

By  | 


With everything that has to be done before your wedding, something is bound to go wrong. As Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, it is your job to make this morning go smoothly so the bride and groom can focus on themselves and not have to worry about the little things! So here is a little trick: create an Emergency Kit before the big day. In all the hustle and bustle, dresses rip, shoes get scuffed, people forget to eat, and your beautifully coiffed hair falls down. That’s where you jump in and save the day!

1)  Find a Bag:

The size of this bag depends on what you’re putting in it. But to be truly prepared, you’re going to need one that is fairly decent sized. For guys – it doesn’t have to be super big. Maybe the size of a large shaving kit.

2)  Collect your supplies:

Try to collect things from around your house to save on money. But when you need to purchase something, the travel isle at your local convenient store is the ideal place to shop. Small items are key, because you need to fit as much as you can into your bag. See the suggested items below for a complete list.

3) Pack your bag!

Once you have all of your supplies, pack your bag!
