Your Wedding Day Emergency Kit | Wedding Wednesday

This past October I was my sisters Matron of Honor and I knew that one duty I needed to get done for the wedding day was to have an emergency kit put together. As a photographer I have been to so many weddings where bridesmaids are frantically running around looking for something that they just cant find. (For example: Scissors, finger nail cutters, clear nail…polish just to name a few.) I have always had a small kit on my at all times for each wedding I photograph, but for her wedding I decided it was time to get serious with all the things we might need on the wedding day! It kind of started off as a joke… like I found the BIGGEST clear toiletry bag from Walmart and I said to myself that this bad boy was getting filled to the top! The night I filled it then I snapped a photo with my phone and sent it in the bridesmaid group text telling everyone I was so ready for the weekend! They of course thought I was crazy, but I knew that this bag was amazing and we would all need something in there at some point during the day.


If there is one thing from this post you take away, let it be this- either you need to get yourself an emergency kit that you can DIY or you need to hire me and I will have this with me! (haha. That’s a joke… kinda). You will be so happy you have a bag like this on the wedding day and even if YOU don’t need EVERYTHING in there, you will most likely need at least 1 thing… and then you have it to offer incase a wedding party member, family member or guest needs something!
