You can count on me to be the over prepared one in almost every situation. This trait is the one upside of being a super anxious, “What if?” type of person.
I was recently the Personal Attendant for my beautiful cousin, Maggie, at her wedding:
It was an honor to be asked and I took my role very seriously! Nothing was going to ruin her big day. Although I couldn’t control the weather or the lightning strike to their venue…I could make sure everything else ran smoothly. (BTW – all worked out, wedding proceeded as planned, there was just a brief moment of slight panic).
Having a bridal emergency kit on hand was essential. I’ve pulled these together for other weddings and it always comes in very handy for the bride and her bridesmaids, and in this wedding’s case, was a life saver when we needed to rework a groomsman’s bow tie that was too small!
Print out or take a screenshot of this handy checklist to create your own bridal emergency kit:
The top requested items I received at this wedding were the sewing kit, scissors, and safety pins! At one point, I just safety pinned the scissors to myself so they were easily accessible.
I kept all of the items (aside from the first aid kit, water, and food) in a multi-compartment make-up bag that rolls up into itself. Like this one. It has a hook at the top which was nice because I could hang the bag up so everyone could see what I had and use it as needed.
If there is a must have item you think is missing from the list, please let me know.
Happy wedding season – so much goodness and love to celebrate!
