DIY Emergency Wedding Kit - 22 Must Have Items

No matter how many hours, days, weeks, months, or even years you've spent planning your wedding, you can't guarantee that everything will go perfectly. In fact, you can almost guarantee that something will go wrong at some point - the question is, how are you going to handle it when it does?


As the bride, you shouldn't have to handle most of the last-minute frustrations and stressors that will most likely arise on your wedding day. Delegate your wedding planner and any helpful friends/family (preferably those who volunteer their services in advance) as the ones who will be in charge of handling the day-of questions, such as where to put the extra wine bottles or how to signal to the DJ that it's time to begin the music. However, you should be concerned with any last-minute issues dealing with your or your bridesmaids' dresses, hair, makeup, shoes, etc.

In order to be properly prepared to handle any last-minute wardrobe or accessory malfunctions, we recommend you or one of your bridesmaids put together a "wedding day emergency kit." As your number one wedding planning resource, the team at BridesGo.com is here to help!
