Although you’ve been planning for the better part of a year, there’s nothing worse than the feeling that you may have forgot something. I recommend the bride and the bridesmaids have at least the bare minimum in their wedding day survival kit. After all, we are human and sometimes we forget things. This guide on what to pack will help reduce this risk of this happening to you on your big day.
- Mini sewing kit fully equipped with thread, needles, buttons, safety pins and scissors. There are a lot of dresses around and who knows when that one movement will pop some key stitches.
- Deodorant! These dresses are likely a little thicker than your average dress which leads to more sweat. No one wants to be stinky in a wedding!
- Baby powder. Apply anywhere extra moisture accumulates. This is especially helpful for big breasted women or ladies with no thigh gap. Having sweaty legs rub together under a dress is beyond uncomfortable for anyone.
- Razor. Ever forget to shave your armpits? I know on such a busy day I might!
- Tweezers. Stray eyebrow hairs in close up photos? No thanks.
- Ibuprofen. This can come in handy for various reasons including headaches.
- Small snacks. Protein bars, trail mix, etc. You will be so thankful that’s there while you’re anxiously awaiting the wedding to start. “I do, now lets get to the food!” Ha.
- Straws. You and your wedding party will need to stay hydrated while getting ready and the last thing you want to do is mess up your makeup while refreshing yourself.
- Breath mints. This one is self explanatory.
- Stain remover pen. The dress is WHITE. I’m lucky to keep white garments clean for all of 10 minutes.
- White chalk. If the stain remover pen isn’t getting a stain out, you can usually cover it with white chalk. No one will ever know.
- Dental floss. Keep that trail mix out of your teeth!
- Lint roller. This may be more helpful to the groom and groomsmen but chances are, they forgot or never thought of it to begin with.
- Tooth brush and tooth paste.
- Extra bobby pins.
- Alcohol! A little liquid courage goes a long way.
Did we forget anything? What else will you have in your wedding day survival kit? We’d love to hear from you!
