Wedding day emergency kits. Every time I mention to a bride that I will be providing an emergency kit on their wedding day, I always get a chuckle. So what exactly is in this famous/infamous wedding day emergency kit? I have a whole list in alphabetical order and I'm still constantly adding to my kit. Obviously, I don't suggest brides put a kit together with ALL of these items! Brides have enough to think about!! However, if brides have not hired a wedding planner or wedding coordinator, I would suggest a few of these items for their condensed version of the emergency kit. My suggestions for brides are in bold but I suggest you pick and choose what is right for you.
