{Aisle Say by Candice}: Wedding Day Emergency Kit

You have spent months planning your special day, not to mention the heaps of money you’ve spent, so you want to be equipped for any little glitch or nuisances that can arise at or before the wedding. Make sure you fill your kit with all those oh-so-useful things that will ‘save the day’.

Clear nail polish…for any stocking snags
Perfume…choose a special fragrance to match your day
Super-glue…for a nail, heel of a shoe or any bow that needs to stay in place
Herbal Rescue Remedy drops…soothes the nerves naturally
Drinking straws…avoid smudging your lipstick and still keep hydrated
Hand lotion…to keep your pretty hands moisturised
Ipod/MP3…with favourite tunes to relax you while getting ready
Lip gloss…will need to reapply often between all the photos and celebration kisses
Chocolates/snacks…sweeten up your special day and give you an energy boost
Tampons…nature can sneak up on you especially when you’re wearing white

Groom-essentials: make sure there are no excuses for ‘cold feet‘
Hip flask ...little sips to calm his nerves ensure a fresh kiss
Note pad & pen…to write down any last minute speech changes
Stress ball…a little distraction to pass time
Biltong…a small manly snack for him to enjoy
Extra shirt buttons…in haste he might be a bit more forceful
Cologne…he can smell as wonderful as he looks

General items:

Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Dental Floss, Headache Tablets, Antacid, Eye Drops, Band-Aids, Facial Tissues, Deodorant, Emery Board, Nail Clipper, Adhesive Bandages, Antiseptic Cream, Hair Brush, Hair Spray, Hair Pins, Mirror (small) Lint Remover, Mending Kit, Scissors, Safety Pins, Stain Remover, Static Remover, Double-Sided Hem Tape, Corsage Pins, Sticky Tape, Matches, Tweezers, Sunscreen, Umbrella, Wedding Day Schedule and List of Important Contact Numbers!

Wherever you are, your wedding kit should be within arm's reach. Usually the Bridesmaid is allocated the responsibility of moving and monitoring it. It can be kept under the front pew at the ceremony, in your room at the reception hall, or even under the main table.

Just in case ‘murphy’s law’ isn’t on your side on your wedding day, you’ll be equipped to dodge any curve balls swiftly and easily. Most of these goodies won’t go to waste either as they will definitely come in handy on your honeymoon too.

Tip for Bride-to-be: If you do not want to ‘throw’ your own special garter then add a spare garter into your kit for the traditional toss.
