Wedding Day Emergency Kit Items

Wedding day emergency kits. Every time I mention to a bride that I will be providing an emergency kit on their wedding day, I always get a chuckle.  So what exactly is in this famous/infamous wedding day emergency kit?  I have a whole list in alphabetical order and I’m still constantly adding to my kit. Obviously, I don’t suggest brides put a kit together with ALL of these items!  Brides have enough to think about!!  However, if brides have not hired a wedding planner or wedding coordinator, I would suggest a few of these items for their condensed version of the emergency kit.  My suggestions for brides are in bold but I suggest you pick and choose what is right for you.

I love the website Minimus for travel sized items.  Recently, I purchased a splinter remover as well as an eyeglass repair kit for my wedding emergency kit.

Don’t forget your wedding dress, shoes, jewelry, undergarments, rings, and marriage license of course!  Have I left out anything?
