Can I share something with you before we get to Thursday Tips (which is super important today)? Today is my Anniversary! Yes, four years ago today I walked down the aisle and said “I Do” to the love of my life Stretch. I can’t believe it’s been four years already! Four awesome years full of fun and love and two beautiful babies! I can’t wait to see what the next four years have in store!

Now, back to Thursday Tips. One of the things I read about, but didn’t actually do for my wedding day was put together a Wedding Emergency Kit. I really wish I had though because it would have saved me headaches (literally) and saved my bridesmaids and family from running all over Schoenchen and  southern Ellis County looking for Tylenol, static spray and other little things I had forgotten. No matter how well you plan and prepare for your wedding day, accidents can still happen. Stocking’s can run, bustles may break, nails can chip and wine may spill. The best way to save yourself from stressing and your family and friends from running tons of little errands is to be prepared. Pack a Wedding Emergency Kit with many of the little things you may need on your wedding day. It is much easier to relax when you are prepared for anything. Listed below are many ideas of things to put in your Wedding Emergency Kit. (Hint: this also would make an amazing gift for the bride to be at her bridal shower).

  • Prescribed medications, Tylenol/Ibuprofen and Antacid
  • A water bottle and light snack
  • Tide Bleach Pen
  • Chalk or baby powder
  • Bobby Pins
  • Safety Pins
  • Sewing Kit- with small scissors, white thread, black thread, thread that matches your bridesmaids dresses, hooks and buttons and seamstress tape
  • Deodorant
  • Hairspray
  • Essential makeup such as waterproof eye makeup, powder and lip gloss. Throughout the day you will be crying, hugging, kissing and very possibly sweating and these will help with touch ups.
  • Emory Board and Clear Polish- to fix both split nails, chipped nails or stocking runs
  • Kleenex
  • Earring Backs
  • Band aids that match your skin tone
  • Comb or small brush
  • Static cling spray
  • Q-tips and cotton balls
  • Tampons
  • Dental floss
  • Breath mints
  • Blotting papers
  • Wet Wipes
  • Lotion in a small or test size
  • Crazy Glue (for a broken heel or centerpiece)

Is there anything I missed? If you have any more suggestions of important items to include in your wedding emergency kit please leave a comment and let me know!
