A bride and groom’s wedding day should be one of their happiest days of their lives as they start out their lives together. But even the most well prepared couples can end up forgetting a small detail or faced with an unexpected event that takes them by surprise. A bridal emergency kit can be used by the bride, groom or guests during the wedding day or while the couple are on honeymoon.
The wedding day is a joyous occasion, but it is also quite a stressful day, which can leave you with a splitting headache by the time you and your new husband are ready to drive off into the sunset. Carry a small bottle of headache medication and take a couple of painkillers at the first sign of pain.
First Aid Kit
A first aid kit should be well stocked with plasters, gauzes, bandages, a small pair of surgical scissors, safety pins and other items in case you or someone around you needs assistance.
Did you forget to take your birth control pill when you woke up on your wedding day? Unless you are planning to start trying for a baby as soon as you are married, pack a backup method of contraception in your bridal emergency kit. This will provide extra protection in case your first method of contraception fails.
Feminine Hygiene Products
You do not want your wedding day ruined by the unexpected arrival of your period, but this can happen, which is why you should be prepared for it. Pack two or three sanitary towels or tampons, along with a small package of wet wipes, in case your period starts before, during, or after your wedding ceremony.
Weddings are emotional and you could find yourself in tears as you say your vows. Unfortunately, red, swollen eyes and running mascara does not look so good in wedding photos, which is why you should pack a few pocket-sized packs of tissues for yourself, your new husband and your guests.
Breath fresheners are a life saver on the day of the wedding. Pop a breath freshener in your mouth before you walk down the aisle so that you can be sure of fresh breath as you take your first kiss as a married woman.
There are many other items that you could include in your bridal emergency kit such as a spare lipstick, foundation, sewing kit, extra tights or stockings. Tailor yours to include items you think you might need on your wedding day. A bridal emergency kit can really help you to face unexpected challenges without the extra stress of worrying about the smaller details.
