15 Must-Have Wedding Day Emergency Items

By Adorn Bridal September 17, 2020 Wedding Day

We hope that everything goes swimmingly on your wedding day, however, you always want to be prepared for the unexpected! You never know what mini emergency is going to arise on your special day, so it’s essential that you’re prepared for any situation. Having a designated bridesmaid or your wedding planner keep a small emergency bag on hand can be a life saver on your wedding day. Wondering what to pack? We’ve collected the top 15 must-have items for your wedding day emergency kit below:

  • Band-Aids: Whether you or one of your bridesmaids gets a papercut on a program, or your shoes are giving you blisters, Band-Aids are an absolute must-have in your wedding day emergency bag.
  • Tampons: Mother nature has a knack for striking at the worst times, and with your wedding party not carrying purses around, having a tampon on hand can be a lifesaver for you or one of your girls on the big day.
  • Tissues: It’s an emotional day, so be prepared for any tears of joy by packing tissues! These can also be great for blotting away sweat or any spills.
  • Safety Pins/Sewing Kit: You never know what’s going to happen, so unless your seamstress is attending the wedding, this is a must-have! Save yourself and your bridesmaids from any broken straps or loose beading and pack a sewing kit.
  • Bobby Pins: Wedding days are long, and after hours of photos and dancing, your hair can start to fall! Be ready to tuck away loose strands by having some bobby pins on hand.
  • Tweezers: Whether you have a splinter or a stray eyebrow hair, be ready to pluck it out with a pair of emergency tweezers!
  • Water: Although we highly suggest popping bubbly to celebrate your day, it’s also essential that you stay hydrated! You’ll be on your feet for several hours, so have some water on hand to keep yourself hydrated and upright throughout the day.
  • Tide-to-Go: God forbid you encounter a spill on your wedding day, be ready with a tide to go pen! It’ll help lessen the stain for pictures and will help prevent the stain from setting in so that you can preserve your dress post-wedding.
  • Ibuprofen/Benadryl: Don’t let a headache or allergic reaction ruin your wedding day! Have some medication on hand to handle any issues that arise.
  • Deodorant: Your wedding day will be long and with all of the excitement you’ll periodically want to freshen up! Keep a mini deodorant on hand and dance the night away without worry.
  • Fashion Tape: A staple in any emergency bag! Whether it’s for you or your bridesmaids, dresses can slip throughout the night. Avoid any fashion mishaps and have tape ready to go, especially while you and your girls are getting ready.
  • Oil Blotting Sheets: Your wedding day will be the most heavily photographed day of your life! Keep your face shine free throughout photos with some oil blotting sheets.
  • Snack: With all of the standing you’ll be doing, you’ll want to avoid getting lightheaded by keeping a snack around. This can also be a lifesaver if someone in your wedding party starts to feel faint.
  • Lipstick/Chapstick: Between eating, drinking, and planting smooches on your new partner, your lipstick is bound to fade through the night! Keep Chapstick and extra lipstick on hand to reapply throughout the wedding.
  • Bug Spray/Sunscreen: Especially if you’re having a summer wedding, you’ll want to protect yourself from the sun and mosquitoes. Keep bug spray and sunscreen on hand to avoid any summer discomfort.

Stay ahead of the game and make sure your wedding day emergency kit is packed with everything and anything you may need. Keep these items on hand and you’ll be prepared for whatever the day throws at you. For more helpful wedding tips and tricks, visit https://planning.adornnashville.com/wedding-planning.
