The Ultimate, All-in-One Wedding Emergency Kit You’ll Ever Need

Imagine this, you’re getting ready at a venue miles away from your home and realize you left your deodorant. Then your bridesmaids need extra bobby pins. Suddenly, there’s a tear in your wedding dress or tux. What now? Do you ball your eyes out, because you feel like what’s supposed to be your BEST day is turning into your worse? Although there’s a pretty big chance you’ll ruin your makeup and walk down the aisle with puffy eyes if you do. There is another way though and I’m totally not trying to freak you out, but accidents happen. Instead of going into your wedding day unprepared, you can walk in confidently expecting the unexpected. 

But how? A wedding day emergency kit. 

The Ultimate, All-in-One Wedding Emergency Kit 

We’ve seen the emergency kit lists around the web and circling Pinterest, but this list here comes not only from experience but from the heart. It’s a “no holding back” list that brings up nearly every possible situation that could go wrong on your wedding day. Let’s just hope and pray you won’t need everything on this list. With that being said, should you feel it isn’t necessary to keep the unused items, feel free to return them.

In addition, I’ve placed each item into a category and ranked them from most to least important (in my opinion) to better help you. Without further ado, let’s get started. 

Beauty

  • Bobby pins – Ummm…do we need even need to explain why?
  • Blotching paper and/or Kleenex for your makeup.
  • Feminine products – pads, tampons, your preference. 
  • 911 wax strips or razor with shaving cream.
  • Hair ties! Bring a whole set, because this is like the number one misplaced item in every one of my friends’ homes.
  • Perfume
  • Moisturizer or lotion
  • Lip balm or chapstick, because you need to moisturize those lips, Honey.
  • Nail clippers for an accidental hangnail.

Are you having a summer or Texas wedding? Then the items below are emergency kit must haves:

  • Sunscreen
  • “Crotch” perfume, you know that Summer’s Eve stuff because on your wedding day you sweat in places you normally wouldn’t lol.

Wardrobe

  • Scissors
  • Tape (clear and dutch)
  • Sewing kit
  • Safety pins
  • Shoe cleaner for scruffs
  • Tide pen for stains, of course.
  • Lint roller
  • Dress tape
  • Clear nail polish – this works great for stocking runs!

Hygiene

  • Feminine products – pads, tampons, your preference. *yep, they’re on here again
  • Deodorant, specifically the clear color. It won’t leave a white stain on the suit.
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Breath mints
  • Deodorant wipes or body wipes – to wipe away sweat in extra places and keep your wardrobe (and hygiene) tidy.

Health or Medical

  • Mini first-aid kit
  • Feminine products – pads, tampons, your preference. 3 times the charm right? 
  • Tylenol
  • Gas X or Pepto
  • Tums
  • Extra contacts or eye drops
  • Snacks because you WILL get hungry!
  • Water – you’ve got to stay hydrated, Sis.

Intangibles

  • Patience
  • Love
  • Kindness

Final Words

In closing, thank you for taking the time to check out this all-in-one emergency kit.  As a wedding photographer, I generally bring many of these items with me to weddings as an added courtesy. I want my couples to have more time to focus on the moment and celebration.

Finally, I’d like to thank you for considering me to capture your day. I hope you found this emergency kit helpful and more inclusive. If you have any other items you’d like to add, I’d love to hear them. Please know that if you have any questions at all, please reach out. I’m here to help!

Congrats on your engagement. Talk soon!

If you found this blog post useful, please feel free to share with couples who are getting married. I’d love to help out as many couples as possible. Thanks again!
