40 Items To Have In Your Wedding Day Survival Kit
Sally is a makeup artist, a beauty junkie and a coffee addict that loves finding new products and techniques and using them to give her clients an amazing experience – every time.
We hope that your wedding goes off without a hitch – other than when you hitch up with your partner of course.
The best way to make sure that everything goes smoothly is to make sure that you are prepared for anything that comes up.
The Wedding Day Survival Kit goes beyond makeup touchups (although I’ve included that here too).
This list looks large (and it is) – but you don’t need to have full sized items, or full packets, of everything. Keep everything in a small bag and leave it with someone trustworthy to bring along for the day.
The Touchup Kit
If your bridal package doesn’t include a touchup kit, look at getting these things to keep you looking fresh all day.
Oil Blotting Paper
Brides nail polish
Clear Nail Polish
The Hair Kit
Hair emergencies happen. Have your hairstylist brief one of your bridesmaids on how to fix your hair if you decide to take your veil out after the ceremony.
The Bride’s Comfort Kit
Often the bride is too busy on the day to remember to eat or drink. Make sure that you can keep your energy up all day with food and drinks to keep you going.
Small snacks (museli bar, trail mix, protein balls)
Bottle of water
Individually wrapped straws
Ballet flats for dancing if the bride’s wedding shoes become too painful
The Outfit Kit
Don’t stress out if a button falls off.
Mini Sewing Kit (safety pins, straight pins, buttons, mini scissors, threads the colour of the bride’s wedding dress and bridesmaid’s dresses and black for the boys)
Hollywood Tape / Fashion Tape
Spare Earring Backs
The Freshness Kit
It’s a long day and you’ll be glad to be able to freshen up.
The Medical Kit
Antihistamine (especially if you are having an outdoor wedding)
Tampons / Panty Liner
The Details Kit
Wedding day list of key people and their phone numbers
Wedding schedule and relevant maps
Paper / Small Notebook
Most of these items will be perfect for taking on your honeymoon as well, so put it all into the cutest bag you can find and relax, knowing that you can handle anything that comes up.
