February 3, 2017 / Favors & Gifts, Planning / By:

Every bridal party needs to be prepared to face the unexpected on wedding day. That’s why it’s so imperative to have a wedding day emergency kit, so that everyone can be prepared to face those unforseen circumstances! These bad boys will come in handy in case of any unwelcome surprises. These are great little gifts for the maid of honor or the wedding planner to put together for everyone! Here are some things each kit should include!

Sewing Kit 


A mini sewing kit is perfect for any issues that could come up with the dress/veil! It should typically include scissors, thread that will match the wedding gown, tuxedos, and bridesmaid dresses, hem tape, fashion tape, clear nail polish, super glue, lint roller, chalk, Tide-To-Go, static guard, and small sewing needles.



These little make up kits are great to add into your bridal kit. They should generally include foundation, blush, bronzer, mascara, mascara, eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, chapstick, lipstick, lip gloss, make up remover, cotton swabs, oil absorbing sheets, tweezers, nail file, tissues and a mirror.

Your hair kit will be super important for any last minute touch ups! They should include a brush, hair spray, bobby pins, hair ties, baby powder, and a comb. If your bride is wearing any special rhinestones or clips in her hair, you should keep some extras in this kit as well!



Your extras kit should include advil, tums, bandaids, scented bug spray, sun screen, tampons, deoderant, perfume, floss, tooth brush, water, granola bars, chocolate, energy drinks, straws for your drinks (no spilling!), mints, phone charger, bride’s ID, cash, earring backs and socks.

Each of these little kits that go into the entire emergency kit sometimes require a lot, so a money friendly idea as a maid of honor would be to have each bridesmaid be responsible for one of them, so the stress of getting everything won’t all be on your shoulders. If you’re not really in the DIY spirit at this point, here are some awesome emergency kits that you can purchase online instead!
