The reality is, not everyone is going to agree on what exactly makes up that thing called wedding essentials. But we have tried to include a collection of items that are of great help that don’t easily fit into any other wedding category, like clothing or food.
Once you have finished your wedding day checklist and wedding planning checklist, it is about time to start creating your wedding day survival kit. This is a lot different from the wedding planning list. Now that the wedding favors and cupcakes are taken care of, and your vendor contact list and personal vows are ready to go, what’s next?
This kit should include everything you are going to need for your wedding. Usually, it is best to pack this survival kit with your “best girl”, your maid of honor. She may have insight to help you pack some things you may have forgotten.
Here are the items you didn’t think of:
- The Button down Shirt (you don’t want to pull a t-shirt over your perfectly sprayed hairstyle!
- Double Stick Tape (so everything stays where it should stay)
- Compact Steamer
- Extra Buttons & Small Sewing Kit
- Lint Brush
- Pain Aid
- Stain Remover and White Chalk for covering dress stains
- Breath Mints
- Extra Hosiery
- Cotton Swabs
- Floss and toothbrush
- Nail file
Once your wedding day arrives, it’s your job to sit back and relax. This is why you have a wedding party – to take care of the little odds and ends that would keep you from doing your job! You worked hard and this is the point where you are supposed to feel pampered. Your honeymoon is only a few hours away, so enjoy this time with family and friends (and don’t forget to have an extra piece of cake!).
