It’s incredibly easy for a bride to forget small details on her big day. Checklists will eventually feel like a never-ending process. Big details start to overshadow the small. And if you don’t have a wedding planner or badass maid of honor who’s got your back with emergency wedding kits, do yourself a favor and make one for yourself now so you don’t have to worry about it later. Because if you’re a bride-to-be, I guarantee one of these items will come in handy when you’re least expecting it.
1. Get your dental floss on:
Not only for oral care but it also works as an essential toothpick for that food-in-mouth situation that’s hard to dodge.
2. Safety pins to the rescue:
Even if your dress fits perfectly when you try it on, it might not stay the way you want it to look throughout the day.
3. Sewing kits for survival mode:
When safety pins don’t do the trick, here’s option B.
4. Pick bandaids that’ll match your dress
Because new shoes are hard to break in.
5. Y’all, Q-tips is where it’s at
These bad boys come in handy if you run into a cosmetic mess.
6. When in doubt, medicine
Whether you’re milking a rehearsal dinner hangover or just going through a bad headache, relieve the pain.
7. Seriously, don’t forget tweezers.
Unwanted hairs might not exist the day before the wedding but that doesn’t mean they won’t creep up the day of.
8. Tissues are necessary
Because brides will cry tears of joy at one point.
9. Tic Tacs are the refreshing way to go:
Freshen your breath with small white mints that won’t stain your outfit.
10. Bobby pins, always. Toothpaste is a plus.
Bobby pins need no explanation. Just don’t forget.
11. Grab your favorite mini deodorant:
Because nerves will make you sweat… and you will be nervous (in a good way).
