Be Prepared For Anything With A Wedding Day Emergency Kit

We all hope that everything goes exactly as planned on the wedding day, but just in case something does happen to go wrong, having a wedding day emergency kit packed and ready can avoid letting that little mishap become a big problem. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has made a list of things that could come in handy. 

The list is separated into categories, but many of the items can do double-duty, covering a variety of tasks. For example, clear nail polish is great for a shiny manicure touch-up, but it can also help to stop a run in hosiery. Hair spray works for that too, as well as keeping your hair in place. 

Another example is the tape. It's a good thing to have on hand in case you need to fasten a wedding decoration, but it's also perfect for fixing the hem in a gentleman's pants when there is no time to sew. The more you toss into your kit, the more likely you will be ready for any possibility. Here are a few basics to definitely include:

Fashion Items

  • Mirror
  • Extra earring backs
  • Facial blotting papers: much better for shine than more powder
  • Stain removal pen or wipes
  • Baby powder & white chalk: to absorb stains on white dress 
  • White cotton towels or cloths: same as above
  • Safety pins
  • Small sewing kit
  • Lint brush
  • Static cling spray

Beauty Items

  • Hand lotion: apply right before walking down the aisle so the ring will slide on smoothly!
  • Moist towelettes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Kleenex
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Clear nail polish
  • Nail polish that matches your manicure
  • Nail clippers & nail file
  • Bobby Pins/ hair ties
  • Cotton balls or cotton swabs
  • Drinking straws: using a straw will keep your lipstick from smearing
  • Dental floss/ toothpicks
  • Hair spray
  • Razors

First Aid Items

  • Band-aids
  • Basic medicines: pain relievers, allergy medicine, antacid...
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Tweezers


  • Sun block
  • Bug spray
  • Gum & Mints
  • Tape: regular, double-sided, duct...
  • Super glue
  • Scissors
  • Lighter or matches
  • Snacks: if you don't eat something before the ceremony, you'll have a tough time making it all the way until dinner
  • Bottled water
  • Chargers & extra batteries
  • Pens & paper
  • Contacts list & wedding day timeline: have a few copies and make sure you best helpers know where to find this information

Being prepared for anything is the best way to avoid any disasters on your special day. It is very likely that you won't need the majority of the items in your kit, but you'll sure be glad that they are there if a seam busts or a camera battery dies. It will only take a little time to throw your wedding day emergency kit together, and it could be a day-saver. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches wishes you a wonderful, stress-free wedding. You will look beautiful in your dress from our South Florida bridal boutique, and with this kit, you'll be ready for anything!
