As a planner, I always carry around my emergency wedding bag on wedding days and my couples often ask what I could possibly need that takes up so much space! Well, I’m going to tell you today exactly what’s in it – rest assured that all of these things have been needed at one time or another and I am always adding to the bag!
For those of you that aren’t using a wedding planner, it might be an idea to have at least a few of these to hand (I think chalk is the most useful for those small mishaps that cause stains on the dress – a little chalk can cover it!)
In my emergency kit:
Wonder web (for unruly hems)
Facial blotting papers (get rid of shine)
Dress tape (ok then – tit tape!)
Diarrhoea medicine (when the nerves get too much!)
Nice pen (for when the couple forget one for the guestbook)
Candle lighter (so used!)
Alka seltzer (comes in handy)
Clear nail polish
Hair gel (one of my very few items I’ve needed for the groom)
Sweets (sugar rush when brides forget to eat all day)
Face powder and brush
Rescue remedy (calms you down)
Feet gel pads
Cufflinks (the most forgotten item)
Earrings (mainly plain pearl ones)
Straws (so the bride doesn’t mess up her makeup if she needs hydrating just before leaving for the wedding)
Tights (in 3 sizes)
So you see – I NEED that massive emergency bag!
I like to be prepared for any eventuality!
I have lots of weddings I’m organising right now and most of them are happening in July so I’ll have some lovely pictures to show you all soon!
