Rig it

Did someone’s shoe strap break? Is your bridesmaid’s clutch losing jewels? Keep a mini tool kit for quick fixes.

  • Duct tape
  • Safety pins
  • Small scissors
  • Superglue

Stay dressy

  • Lint roller – For the groom, of course.
  • Handheld steamer
  • Sewing kit
  • Spot remover
  • Hem tape
  • Chalk – For last minute smudges and marks on your dress.


  • Hairspray
  • Waterproof mascara
  • Bobby pins
  • Concealer
  • Q-tips
  • Feminine protection
  • Pain reliever
  • Nail file
  • Tissues
  • Tweezers
  • Mirror
  • Breath mints
  • Hand lotion
  • Floss

It’s not a bad idea to keep some blood sugar boosters around as well: think granola bars and trail mixes. Make sure you have extra water on hand and are staying hydrated throughout the day to avoid fatigue.

Now you can keep your composure no matter what. The rest is up to fate! Are you planning to include anything else in your wedding day emergency kit? Let us know if we forgot anything in the comments!
