10 Essential Items for your Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Adam Ewbank


Your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life, but let’s face it, things can go wrong. That’s why it’s crucial to have a wedding day emergency kit on hand. Think of it as your own personal superhero kit that will save the day when you least expect it. In this post, we’ll go over the top 10 must-have items for your wedding day emergency kit, so you can rest easy knowing that you’re prepared for any situation.

  1. Safety pins: Safety pins are like duct tape for your wedding day. They can fix a broken strap on a bridesmaid’s dress or hold up your groom’s pants that are a little too big. It’s always good to have a few extra on hand, just in case.

  2. Sewing kit: In addition to the safety pins, a good sewing kit is a great piece to have on hand for any mishaps. It should include a needle, thread, and a variety of buttons, so you can fix any wardrobe malfunctions before they happen.

  3. Scissors: Scissors are like a trusty sword in your emergency kit. They can be used to cut thread, trim a veil, or even cut ribbon.

  4. Lint roller: As the owner of a white dog who sheds EVERYWHERE, I can personally vouch for the beauty of a good lint roller. They’re priceless when it comes to those little bits of dust and hair that can appear on your suit or dress.

  5. Stain remover: Accidents happen, and it’s always best to be prepared. A small bottle of stain remover can be a lifesaver if a bride or groom spills something on their attire.

  6. Extra earring backs: Losing an earring back can be a disaster on your wedding day. Make sure to include extra earring backs in your emergency kit, so you can quickly and easily fix any mishaps.

  7. Clear nail polish: Clear nail polish is like a force field for frayed ribbon and runs in stockings. It can seal the end of a frayed ribbon or to stop a run in a pair of stockings.

  8. Hair pins: When you get your hair done, you’ll probably have a hundred of these in your hair already. Still, they’re great to have around in case that one little strand keeps falling away (you know the one)

  9. Deodorant and antiperspirant: Weddings can be stressful, and it’s important to stay fresh and dry throughout the day. Make sure to include deodorant and antiperspirant in your emergency kit. No one wants to be smelly.

  10. First-aid kit: A basic first-aid kit should be included in your emergency kit. It should include band-aids, pain relievers, and any other necessary items.

By including these 10 must-have items in your wedding day emergency kit, you can feel confident that you’re prepared for any situation that may arise. Remember to keep your emergency kit in a convenient location and to check it before the wedding to make sure everything is there and in good condition. With a well-stocked emergency kit, you’ll be able to handle any unexpected issues that come up and you can focus on enjoying your special day. After all, you deserve to have a stress-free and unforgettable wedding day!
