Wedding Survival Kit

I'm sure by now you know:
1. Last weekend was Mallory and Seth's Wedding
2. I was the Maid of Honor

Thus I made this "Wedding Survival Kit"...
It consists of items we might need in any situation pertaining to the wedding.

Some of the items we never needed, some items were life-savers!

So here is my kit and the items included...


Scissors (most used item)
Allergy Medicine
Pain Reliever
Antacids
Band Aids
Neosporin
Bobby Pins
Hair Ties
Eye Makeup Remover
Perfume
Lotion
Vaseline
Makeup
Tampons/Pads
Hairspray
Hand/Face Wipes
(we used these before handling Mal's dress and veil... dirty hands and white dresses do not mix well)
Baby Wipes
Contact Lens Solution
Finger Nail Polish Remover
(Very handy for a fresh coat of polish the morning of the wedding.)
Deoderant
White Nail Polish
Clear Nail Polish
Toothpaste
Toothbrush
Wispies
Q-Tips
Nail Clippers
Nail File
Orange Sticks
(the orange sticks were in a nail kit I threw in there and they worked great for hooking the little elastic hoops around the buttons on the back of her dress)
Needles
Thread
Seam Wripper
Straight Pins
Straws
Tissues
(so glad I brought tissues... we were all crying at the alter!)
Tape Measure
Hand Sanitizer
Tape
Batteries
Lint Roller
Bleach Pen
Tide-To-Go Pen
Static Guard
Super Glue
Chalk
Umbrella
Breath Mints
Snacks
(In the bridal party waiting room everyone was a little nervous so we munched on some chips and it made everyone feel better)
Water
(OMG yes! I brought four bottles and it wasn't enough!)

I bought the clear tub with the handle on top so it would be easy to carry and we could identify the items we needed very quickly. It was $5.47 at Wal-Mart.

I was surprised how helpful the items in the kit were. If anyone needed anything, I could grab it quickly. Much easier than having random items in your purse, suitcase, or bag.

So MOH's or even you Bridesmaids... definitely invest in a Wedding Survival Kit. What you do use will save you on wedding day and what you don't use, you can keep for personal use!

    1. I think what I meant was "Wisps"... they are the one time use on-the-go toothbrushes. http://www.colgatewisp.com/wisp/HomePage :-)
