As a soon-to-be bride, you probably aren’t expecting any “emergencies” to happen on your wedding day… However, no matter how much you prepare, minor mishaps are bound to happen. So, it’s a good idea to have a few helpful items on hand in case you need them. Cue, the wedding day emergency kit!
A wedding day emergency kit is exactly what is sounds like – a collection of super helpful items and household essentials to fix any problem that may arise throughout your wedding day. Not only are emergency kits designed to help fix any mishap, it also gives you peace of mind knowing that you have everything covered, just in case 😉 You’ve spent many hours planning your gorgeous day, so being even more prepared will allow you to feel completely calm and ready to enjoy every moment of your wedding day! Also, a wedding day emergency kit will ensure you have everything you need so you won’t have to make any last minute trips!
Deciding what to include in your wedding day emergency kit might feel very overwhelming at first. Don’t worry, I’ve made it super easy for you! While we can’t predict every wedding emergency scenario, it’s important for you to consider packing the following items as well as consulting with your wedding planner/coordinator and wedding photographer to help identify the proper items specific to your wedding day. Packing your emergency kit is a completely objective process, but I have outlined a few “must-have” items below!
I recommend gathering all necessary essential items and putting them together in a bag about 2-3 weeks prior to your wedding day. The days leading up to your wedding can be extremely stressful. You have A LOT running through your mind and lots to remember, so make it easy on yourself and have this ready to go prior to any last minute wedding day planning chaos. This will significantly help to reduce stress. Packing your emergency kit a few weeks prior to your wedding day also allows room for any error. It provides you with ample time to add more items as you remember or come across them. Be sure to place your emergency kit bag in a place where you won’t forget it. I recommend placing the emergency kit in the vehicle you will be traveling in on your wedding day and leaving it there!
As a professional wedding photographer, I have definitely seen a thing or two. Minor mishaps are normal for any wedding, but as long as you’re prepared, there’s nothing to worry about. I know this list might be a bit intense, but these essential items are a must in your wedding day emergency kit!
