Wedding Emergency Kit Checklist

March 25, 2022

You spend many months planning your wedding. Ironing out all the little details. But the reality is, more often than not, the day of your wedding will provide you with one or two surprises. While you can’t plan everything, you can surely be prepared. With a wedding emergency kit, you cover your bases for emergencies of all sizes.

Whether you find yourself sweating a little more than usual. Your lashes are starting to come off. You find yourself starving. Or, a bridesmaids dress is slipping where it certainly shouldn’t be. It’s better to be over prepared than scrambling the day of.

As we’ve had first hand experience with various types of day-of dilemmas, we’ve curated the essential wedding emergency kit checklist. Certainly, we can’t guarantee that these items will solve every problem that may arise, but they’ll certainly help with the most common ones!
