Hello to all future brides out there! We at Healthy Hoohoo know all too well (from firsthand experience!) that planning and organizing a wedding can be as stressful as it is exhilarating. From choosing the perfect dress to the smallest floral detail, every aspect contributes to your big day's success.
So, amidst all the excitement and hustle, what if a minor hiccup occurs on your wedding day? A stain on your dress, a sudden headache, or a broken nail? That's where a well-thought-out wedding day survival kit can be your saving grace. It's like having a bridal superhero utility belt--you'll be prepared for anything!
We've compiled a list of essentials that should be in every bride's wedding day survival kit. So, let's dive in!
14 Essential Items Every Bride Needs in Their Wedding Day Survival Kit
1. Mini Sewing Kit: A small tear or loose button can happen unexpectedly. A mini sewing kit with threads matching your dress, safety pins, and tiny scissors can be a lifesaver.
2. Stain Remover Pen: With all the dining and wining, the risk of getting a small stain on your dress is quite real. A stain remover pen can tackle this in no time.
3. Pain Reliever: It's your big day and you shouldn't let a sudden headache or minor pain spoil it. Keep a small bottle of over-the-counter pain reliever for such emergencies.
4. Band-Aids: It might be the new shoes or just a small cut while getting ready, having Band-Aids can be really handy.
5. Hygiene Products: Keep a few feminine hygiene products in your kit. Healthy Hoohoo's gentle, all natural Individually Wrapped Feminine Wipes are perfect for staying fresh throughout your big day.
6. Mini Deodorant & Perfume: Dancing and moving around can cause some serious sweat. Stay smelling sweet with your favorite mini deodorant and perfume.
7. Snacks & Water: It can be a long day, and you might not have a lot of time to eat. Keep a few healthy snacks and a bottle of water to stay hydrated and energized.
8. Comfortable Shoes: After a long day in heels, your feet will thank you for bringing a pair of comfy shoes for the after-party!
9. Touch-Up Makeup: A small mirror, lipstick, powder, and concealer can help you stay picture-perfect all day long.
10. Hairpins & Hairspray: For those sudden flyaways or hair emergencies, hairpins and a small can of hairspray can work wonders.
11. Tissues & Handkerchief: From wiping away happy tears to smudging makeup, having these at hand will prove more useful than you think.
12. Phone Charger: You don't want to be left with a dead phone at the end of the night, so a portable phone charger is a must.
13. Breath Mints: Keep that minty fresh breath all night long!
14. Flask: Just in case you need to calm those nerves down ;)
Remember, it's all about being prepared so you can focus on the important part--celebrating love, happiness, and the start of your new life.
The wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life, and our goal with this list is to provide a little "been there, done that" wisdom so you can enjoy it to the fullest without worry. So, pack your survival kit, take a deep breath, and get ready to say 'I do' with confidence. Here's to a day full of love, laughter, and happily ever after!
