DIY Day-of Wedding Kits

Planning your wedding is a super stressful task, but there’s no way you can plan for all the stains, rips,  headaches on the big day. If you’ve ever worked with a wedding planner or seen the huge bags they lug around, then you know they always carry an emergency kit with remedies and solutions for any sticky situations that arise on your wedding day. But, what if you’re a do-it-yourself bride? We’ve got tips and suggestions on what to keep in your “Emergency Bridal Kit” to prepare you for the worse!

A wedding coordinator’s emergency kit’s worth is priceless because he/she has everything from scissors to needle and thread to glue sticks. Your kit should contain:

  • Alka Seltzer (tummy aches)
  • Pain/headache medicine
  • Band-Aids
  • Breath mints
  • Bottle of water
  • Comb/hair brush
  • Chalk (to cover up any last minute smudges or smears on your wedding dress)
  • Clear nail polish (for stocking runs)
  • Corsage pins
  • Dental floss/toothpicks
  • Deodorant
  • Eye drops
  • Extra earring backs
  • Extra panty hose
  • Hair pins/ponytail holder
  • Hair spray
  • Hand towelettes
  • Hem tape
  • Krazy Glue
  • Matches
  • Makeup for touch ups
  • Mini sewing kit
  • Nail file
  • Pens
  • Pefume
  • Safety pins
  • Scotch tape
  • Sedatives
  • Scissors
  • Smelling salts
  • Spot remover
  • Static-cling spray
  • Straws (so the bride can stay hydrated without messing up her lipstick)
  • Tampons/ sanitary napkins
  • Tissues
  • Toothbrush
  • Tweezers
  • Wrinkle remover for clothes
Many of these items can be found around your house, so don’t be scared by the idea of forking over $100 for a day-of wedding kit. Store these items into a bag with compartments or toiletry travel bag (the kind that can hang). You could also separate items into categories such as “Beauty” “Medicine” “Stain Removal” and place them in gallon size ziplock bags. Remember ladies, an emergency kit on the day of your wedding is vital and priceless! Mojuba Weddings sells ready-made emergency kits for both brides and grooms if you’re short on time (and patience!).
