Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort. There are so many little details that go into creating the most special day of the happy couple’s life. The bride and groom spend so much time planning to ensure that their ceremony and reception go off without a hitch, but there’s no way to predict what will actually happen throughout the day of their wedding. That’s why many bridal parties pack a wedding day emergency kit to help everyone sail through the big day! It can be overwhelming putting one of these kits together, which is why we’ve created the ultimate wedding day emergency kit guide just for you!
A wedding day emergency kit is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a bag filled with items you may need in case of an emergency on the day of the wedding. You pack this bag full of items you hope you won’t need to give yourself some peace of mind on the big day. This wedding day survival kit should include items that can help everyone in the wedding party – not just the bride.
When Should You Build Your Wedding Day Emergency Kit?
We recommend that you start building a wedding day emergency kit about two months prior to the big day. This gives you enough time to think about items you may need to add without giving you so much time that you’ll forget about it entirely.
You want to make sure that the person in charge of the wedding day survival kit is trustworthy and responsible. We recommend putting someone in your wedding party in charge of the bag to take the stress off the bride on her special day. Normally, this person would be the Maid of Honor. That being said, we know that some brides won’t feel comfortable unless they oversee their own survival kit, so it’s really up to you! Just make sure whoever is in charge will remember to bring it on the wedding day!
Now for the fun part – choosing the items to go into your wedding day emergency kit! Here are 35 items we suggest to everyone:
We highly recommend adding each of these items into your wedding day survival kit. However, you know your wedding party better than anyone, so we encourage you to stock your bag with any items you deem necessary. Think about everyone involved in the big day and stock up on the more unique items you know your party will need.
We hope that you found this guide to be helpful! Your wedding day will be full of special moments, and we don’t want a single one to be ruined by something innocuous that could have been prevented. Having a fully stocked wedding day survival kit should help to make your big day absolutely perfect. If you are looking for a venue for your ceremony and reception, please consider El Agave Banquets.
