It’s better to be safe than sorry on your wedding day, as the last thing you want is to have blisters on your feet, a snagged dress, or spinach in your teeth for your photos. Keeping wedding day essentials in your clutch (or asking your bridesmaids to carry them) is key to having a picture-perfect wedding day.
Here are 13 essential items you need for your wedding day kit.
1. Mini Mirror
A small mirror is absolutely essential to making sure your eyeliner isn’t running, your lipstick’s still on, your hair’s still looking killer, and you don’t have food in your teeth.
2. Dental Floss
You want to eat on your wedding day, right? There’s nothing quite as embarrassing as noticing in the mirror that you’ve got something stuck in your teeth and no one has told you!
3. Blotting Paper
Dancing around in your wedding gown is bound to get hot! Keep away the shiny face by using blotting paper plus a powder finish.
4. Gel Shoe Inserts
Make sure that your feet last the distance in your heels by using gel inserts in the bottom of your shoes – lifesavers.
5. Bobby Pins
Sometimes your hair just doesn’t hold how it should do throughout your whole day. Fix little wisps or hairs out of place with some bobby pins, plus a mini bottle of hairspray.
6. Band Aids
Cuts and blisters happen from time to time! Make sure to get the best band aids on the market that are the least visible, in case of little accidents.
7. Lip Gloss
Keep your lips moist and hydrated after all that champagne with a swipe of clear lip gloss over the top of your lipstick.
Let’s be honest – you’re likely to get a little teary at a few points throughout the day! Pack some mini packs of tissues so that they’re always there to dab your eyes and that your makeup doesn’t run.
Splinters can happen when you least expect them – or maybe one of your bridesmaids has a stray eyebrow hair? Nip it in the bud with a pair of tweezers.
10. Sewing Kit
Needles and thread, safety pins, clear nail polish, double sided tape? Dresses can fail so make sure that you come prepared for anything.
Headaches and body aches can strike at any time. You don’t need to go around asking your guests for help if you carry paracetamol or ibuprofen with you.
“Women don’t sweat, they perspire,” might be the saying, but no matter which way you look at it, you’re probably going to be overheating more than usual on your wedding day. Carry antiperspirant deodorant to ward off the smell of sweat and spritz with diluted perfume.
13. Energy Drinks
It’s entirely possible you were too excited to sleep well and had to get up at the crack of dawn, or you were still up preparing things the night before. An energy drink is your friend to help you get through the day without yawning or coffee breath.
