How to Build a Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Even the laziest of brides should have an emergency kit at the ready on her big day. Knowing you’ve got small mishaps covered is the surest way to keep things running smoothly and stressfree. New shoes causing a blister? Pull out a Bandaid. Have a headache coming on? Down an aspirin. Hair falling out of place? Tame your tresses with bobby pins. Having everything on-hand prevents crazed running around.

Here’s a handy dandy guide to creating your own Wedding Day Emergency Kit. Many travel-sized items can be found at drugstores. We also recommend checking out Hollywood Fashion Secrets as they have oodles of options for kit supplies (available on-line or at Target).

* Put your kit together one month before the wedding.

* Pack everything in some kind of cosmetic bag or cute little suitcase that can be easily stashed by one of your attendants under the head table or somewhere easily accessed.

So here is our suggestion for a complete, Lazy Bride emergency kit!
