Emergency! It’s your wedding day and you’ve got coffee-breath, or a ladder in your stockings, or your wedding dress zip won’t do up, or smudged your make up, or the page son has skinned his knee and is wailing his eyes out! Eeeeek! What do you do? You relax, take a moment and grab your emergency wedding day kit (that your bridesmaid/mum/best friend is conveniently carrying in her bag for you):
Just like a scout, it’s best to be prepared, and packing a little kit of essentials and lifesavers can really make a difference to your day. You’ll be capable to chill out knowing that even little problems and niggles don’t matter and are well solved. Here are some ideas on what to include in your emergency wedding day kit:
- Tissues/wet wipes – for teary moments, make up blotting and general spillages.
- Mints – for pre-kiss fresh breath and to help with the dry mouth that comes with talking so much!
- Plasters – for blisters, accidents or even just to help shoes fit better (extra tip: choose transparent ones so they don’t show up in photos). Consider getting some gel inserts for when your shoes start to hurt from dancing.
