Making a Bride’s Emergency Kit

Part of Wedding Planning For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

No, we’re not talking defibrillators, we’re talking about a bag of items that you may desperately need during the wedding day. What if someone treads on your dress and leaves a mark? What if the wasps start attacking? You need a sizeable bag packed and left with a bridesmaid so you can just yell, ‘Get the bag!’ and restore calm to your big day. Here are some ideas for what to pack:

Category Must-Haves

everything); deodorant; hair clips, brush and hairspray; make-up;
