Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Wedding keepsake box

You have spent the last few months carefully planning your wedding day down to the smallest of detail, and are now looking forward to enjoying your big day. Whilst I’m sure you aren’t planning on encountering any mini emergencies, the fact is issues will occur on your wedding day despite your best efforts to ensure all runs smoothly.

As a wedding planner I would never attend a wedding without my trusty emergency kit which contains a number of personal and practical items that help to quickly address any problems that may arise. Plasters for a guest’s blister, hayfever tablets for a member of the bridal party, a mini sewing kit to rectify an outfit issue and extra tealights to ensure your venue looks just as stunning for your evening guests as it did when your first guest arrived.  All of which are just a small example of the items I have in my planners emergency kit.

Whilst I wouldn’t expect a couples kit to be as extensive as a planners emergency kit, it is definitely a good idea for couples to have a selection of essential items safely packed away in a wedding day survival kit to help with any last minute mini emergencies.

So what exactly should be included within this kit? Take a look below to see which items you might need:

Personal items

  • Hairspray
  • Hairbrush/comb
  • Hairgrips
  • Hairbands
  • Make up kit
  • Lipbalm

Additional items for marquee & dry hire weddings

Some couples also place a basket of essential items in the restrooms for their guests to use throughout the day. These baskets will often include many of the items listed within the personal items above, although, I always recommend that tablets are not included within guest’s baskets just incase they are found by any children that may be attending your wedding day.

I hope this blog post has helped you to plan for any small emergencies that could occur on your wedding day. If you would like to read further wedding planning advice do take a look at my other blog posts, or contact me to discuss how I can assist you with the planning of your big day.
