    It’s your wedding day, and for an event this important, you want to make sure nothing goes wrong. As much as you don’t want to preempt anything drastic, you also want to be prepared for whatever the weather may literally or figuratively bring. Having these items in your wedding day emergency kit can help!

    Fashion tape

    Remedy any sudden tears and loose-fitting garments with a roll of fashion tape. If you don’t have one, double-sided tape works just as well, and has other emergency uses too!

    Sewing kit

    From safety pins to buttons to needles and thread, you pray you won’t need any of these things on your actual wedding day, but it’s better to have them on hand just in case.

    First aid kit

    Emergencies can happen anytime, but those that happen during a wedding can go from small to drastic in mere moments. Nip these emergencies in the bud before they can get worse with a readily-available first aid kit.

    Oil blotting film

    Is there anything worse than looking oily in your wedding photos? These are the pictures you’ll look back on for years to come, so make sure you look fresh in all of them, no matter how haggard the day has been.

    Nail polish and nail polish remover

    A chipped nail can be a minor inconvenience for some and an obsessive concern for others. If you (or even one of your bridesmaids) fall under the second category, you can bet the focus will be split throughout the wedding until the issue has been fixed.

    Extra earrings and earring backs

    God forbid you end up losing an earring during your wedding, but just in case you do, an extra pair is always useful. Additionally, formal earrings tend to be heavy on the earlobes, so having the option to switch as the night goes on is great.

    Makeup kit

    Makeup kit

    Need we say more? You want to look perfect at all times, but none more so than on your wedding day. Our tip? Have your maid-of-honor or bridesmaid hold onto your makeup kit, so you can ask for it quickly anytime.

    Tissues and sanitizing wipes

    For bathroom breaks. For stains. For makeup mistakes. For dinner. These are just some of the many uses of tissues and sanitizing wipes. We recommend preparing both since you won’t know if you’ll need a wet or dry wipe.

    Stain remover

    Sometimes wipes just aren’t enough to get pesky stains out. Especially if you have an outdoor wedding, it’s good to have a stain removal pen or solution on hand to get rid of grass, mud, or dirt stains.

    Toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss

    Toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss

    You want to have a dazzling smile at every opportunity, so don’t risk having bad breath or anything left in your teeth—especially for the big kiss!

    Tampons or menstrual pads

    Has there ever been a curse more tragic than getting your period on your wedding day? Unfortunately, it can happen. Fortunately, even if it does, you can handle anything thrown your way.

    Super glue

    The end-all-be-all of DIY solutions, second only to duct tape. Super glue is perfect in case anything breaks, cracks, or snaps. Let’s hope we don’t need much of it! Plus, the nail polish remover in your kit can also help remove any stray spots of super glue after you apply it.

    Perfume and extra deodorant

    Stress, movement, and some formal clothing are all things that can cause a person to sweat. Unfortunately, wedding days are chock-full of all three of these things. Use your strongest deodorant and most long-lasting perfume at the start of the day, and keep bottles near for a quick reapply.



    Your hair’s biggest issues today? Humidity and anything stronger than a gentle breeze. Lucky, you have your trusty hairspray bottle right by your side to tame any flyaways and hold down unruly hair.

    Pain reliever

    The last thing you want to be focusing on during your big day is body strain, foot pain, a headache, or cramps. Keep all these things at bay with some pain reliever. If you’re on certain kinds of medication, make sure you have those with you, too.

    Phone charger

    Hopefully, the running around and coordinating with others will be left to your maid-of-honor, best man, or wedding planner. But just in case you yourself will need to be in touch with people who aren’t in your immediate vicinity, make sure your phone is fully charged or that you have a charger (and outlet) nearby.


    Happy wife = happy life. But a hangry wife? That’s an altogether bad experience, which is the last thing you want to remember your ceremony as. In all the excitement, you might forget to eat, and even if you want to, people might be too busy to feed you. Take matters into your own hands—and mouth—with something quick and crumb-less.

    Key Takeaway

    Even if minor setbacks occur, your wedding day doesn’t have to be a total disaster. As long as your wedding day emergency kit is within reach, you’ll have all you need to stay on top of any problem, and you’ll be able to focus on what really matters.
