Everything is going to be perfect on my wedding day! Yes, that is what all brides think, but you never know when an earring backing may fall off or a piece of hair springs free from your bobby pins! Most event planners will bring an emergency wedding kit with them, but if not  your maid/matron of honor should take over this responsibility. Your kit should be everywhere with you, the ceremony, the reception, and any off site photo locations that you are going to. Here are Emily’s suggestions for an emergency wedding kit so that you have peace of mind on your big day:

  • Travel size mirror
  • Travel size hair spray
  • Travel size deodorant and perfume
