If you are having a day of coordinator then they will usually have a handy little emergency wedding day kit to help with any minor mishaps on the wedding day. However if you aren’t having a day of coordinator, then this little kit will be an essential for you. Check out exactly what you need in your emergency wedding day kit.
Now you will find many comprehensive lists online but they all tend to focus on what the bride will need. But what about if you accidentally break one of the button holes or your hand crafted table plan needs some TLC? There are a few essentials you should have on hand to help with these sort of mishaps as well.
- Tape – masking tape & floral tape
- Super glue
- Blue Tack
- Extension Cable (especially if you are using a non dedicated wedding venue)
- Spare Batteries (for any of the sizes you are using)
- Lighter (for lighting any candles)
- Pens (ideally the ones you have used with any decorations)
- Fishing Wire
- Cable Ties
It is always a good idea to be totally ready for the worse should something go wrong with any of the outfits on the day. That includes any spillages on the dress, loose threads or rips. And if the worse should happen, don’t be afraid to get creative with the solution. I once had to use a white linen napkin in the back of a wedding dress that the bride hadn’t checked fitted before she flew out to her overseas wedding to hide some skin that shouldn’t be showing.
- Mini sewing kit with needle, thread, scissors, buttons and safety pins.
- Fabric tape
- Stain Remover Pens
- White Chalk (if you are wearing a white dress it is great for any cover ups)
- Lighter (for any frays)
And finally you need to have a little mini kit on hand should you yourself need any TLC. Now this list could go on and on but unless you fancy carrying a small suitcase around with you we recommend keeping it to the essentials. You need to smell fresh, look good and be dancing all night.
