We’ve already featured some emergency bridal items, here at Bridalwave, but as the day itself grows ever-closer, I’ve been finding myself frantically adding items to an increasingly long list of "just in case" items which absolutely must accompany me to our venue – and, in some cases, must be purchased long before the wedding itself.
Top of the list at the moment is a pack of Compeed patches and an industrial pack of Zovirax. I get cold sores maybe once every five years or so, but if I’m going to get one I would put money on it arriving a couple of days before the wedding, so these are absolute must haves. Other things on my list:
1. Vitamin C tablets
2. Echinacea (to boost the immune system)
(As you can probably tell, I’m anticipating getting a cold, too. Or not, once I’ve dosed myself up with this little lot!)
4. Pocket sewing kit for any sewing-related emergencies that may crop up
5. Band aids
7. Breath mints
9. Nail polish and file
14. Toothbrush and toothpaste
Many of these (such as the makeup, deodorant etc) are things I’ll be packing anyway for our overnight stay at the hotel, but I still can’t help feeling there are some things I’m missing. What are you putting in your wedding day emergency kit?
(If you can’t be bothered putting a kit together by yourself, incidentally, the one in the picture is a ready-made kit which you’ll find for $22.95 here. There’s also a whole selection of different kits at Wedding Depot.
