Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Ask just about any seasoned bride or groom out there, and they will tell you that on the wedding day there was at least one thing that they could have used but didn't have.  In some cases, the "thing" was a minor need, but in others, the "thing" would have been a major lifesaver on a hectic day!

I'd like to start a running list here today of things that should be brought with you on your big day in a Wedding Emergency Kit.  Here's what I have so far thanks to as well as from


  • brush/comb
  • cell phone (turned off before the ceremony!)
  • clear nail polish (chips and stocking runs) and nail polish that matches the bride's manicure
  • emery board
  • extra panty hose
  • hair spray
  • handkerchief/tissues
  • touch-up make up
