Wedding Wednesday: Bridal Survival Kit

Happy Wedding Wednesday!  I can’t believe it’s that time again already!  Today I’m here not only as your friend and blogger, but as your concerned wedding planner, with some words of wisdom for your wedding day: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BRIDE SURVIVAL KIT!

Avoid THIS with a Bridal Survival Kit!

This handy-dandy box full of disaster-averters will keep you prepared for anything, and help you avoid unnecessary stress on your big day.  I take a stocked survival kit with me when doing events, but incase I’m not there to supply you, here’s what you’ll need to include when making your own:

  • Extra Make up – LIPSTICK
  • Waterproof Mascara
  • Eye-makeup remover – in case of tears!
  • Q-tips
  • Hand mirror
  • Hairspray
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hair Brush
  • Tweezers
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Floss
  • Breath mints
  • Lotion
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pain Reliever
  • Antacids – Pepto Bismol is my Go-to!
  • Static Guard
  • Band-aids and/or Liquid Bandage
  • Lint Remover
  • Tide-To-Go Pen or White Chalk
  • Baby Wipes
  • Deodorant
  • Clear Nail Polish
  • Nail Polish Remover
  • Emery Board
  • Super glue
  • Extra nylons if wearing
  • Razor
  • Tampons
  • Sewing Kit
  • Scissors
  • Safety pins
  • Double-sided tape
  • Tissues
  • Bottle of Water
  • Drinking Straw

You may also want to include:

  • Curling iron
  • Straighter
  • Steamer
  • Slippers and/or Dancing Shoes
  • Extra batteries if someone is snapping pics on your personal camera
  • Your perfume
  • Champagne to celebrate with your bridesmaids…. aaand take the edge off!

I’d suggest getting the travel bottles of these items, so don’t have to lug a Walgreens around the entire day.  You may also want to consider purchasing a kit online.  Ms. and Mrs. sells kits for Brides that include almost everything I’ve listed above for just $49.00.  They also have bridal mini-kits, and kits for Grooms, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen and Moms.  They come with a sample-size of each item, probably enough to get you through, and are neatly packed in cute cases:

Whether you’re making your own, buying one online, or borrowing mine, being prepared with a Bridal Survival Kit will be a God-send on your big, busy day!

Did I miss anything YOU would include in yours?  Please tell!

  1. I really love that I found your blog, because #1 I’m doing Wedding Wednesdays too and #2 My name is Stephanie too, #3 I’m also a twenty something.

    Coincidence? I think no.

    I love the bridal survival kit idea, btw. Great Post

  2. do not fear the Tide to-go. Its a lifesaver! (and I’m obsessed) I used it to save a white tux pre photos. WATCH for hugs that leave make-up on the lapel. It won’t yellow the white fabric
