Be Prepared: Emergency Items to Pack for Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is the best day of your life, but as with any major event, unexpected hiccups can arise. Being prepared for unforeseen challenges can make a significant difference in keeping the day running smoothly. To ensure you’re ready for anything, consider packing an emergency kit filled with essential items. Here’s a guide to help you assemble the perfect emergency kit for your wedding day.

First Aid Essentials

Start your emergency kit with basic first aid supplies. Include items like band-aids, pain relievers, antacids, and blister pads. These essentials can address minor injuries or discomfort and keep you and your bridal party feeling their best.

Sewing Kit:

A small sewing kit can be a lifesaver for wardrobe malfunctions. Include needles, thread in various colours, safety pins, and small scissors. This kit can quickly fix a loose button, a torn hem, or any unexpected clothing mishaps – I can not tell you how many times these items have been needed in my wedding photographer career!

Boob Tape

Self explanitary really! Good, not only for saving your boobs from making an welcome apperance, but also great for emergency garment repair!

Deodorant and Perfume

Stay fresh throughout the day by packing travel-sized deodorant and your favorite perfume. A quick touch-up can make a big difference, especially during those warm moments on the dance floor.

Hair and Makeup Touch-Up Kit:

 Include items like hairpins, hairspray, bobby pins, and makeup essentials for quick touch-ups. A mini-mirror can also come in handy for last-minute checks before photos or the ceremony.

Snacks and Water

Keep energy levels up by packing snacks such as granola bars and bottled water. Nervous excitement and a busy schedule can sometimes lead to forgetfulness about eating, so having quick, nourishing snacks on hand is a smart move.

Phone Charger

Ensure your phone is fully charged throughout the day by packing a portable charger or a charging cable. You’ll want to capture and share every special moment without worrying about a dead battery.


Emotions run high on wedding days, so having a pack of tissues can be a thoughtful addition. Whether for happy tears or unexpected spills, tissues are a versatile and essential item.
