How to Create the Perfect Emergency Kit

As I'm sure you know, it is super important to be prepared for absolutely anything on the day of your wedding.  Trust me, something will go wrong, and if you have the tools on hand to solve the problem, it will prevent major stress and tears from happening.  Tomorrow we are going to talk about getting organized for your big day and the steps to make sure you have a stress free wedding.  Creating a kick ass emergency kit is one of those steps, so that's what we are focusing on today!   (Click pic for original source, all pics via Pinterest.)

To start, you need to gather your supplies.  These are some of the items you definitely want to include, all of which I always had on hand when I was coordinating:

Needle and white thread
Chalk (can be used to cover scuffs on white shoes, or to cover small marks on a white dress)
Bobby pins
Hair ties
Lint roller
Brush and comb
Safety pins
Duct tape
Scotch tape
Double stick tape
Eye drops
Mouthwash and/or gum/mints
Clear nail polish
Super glue
Tide stick
Static guard
Granola bar
Bottle of water
Straws (easier to drink out of once lipstick has been applied)
Tums/Pepto Bismol
Lip gloss/chapstick

For most of these items, I could tell you an awesome story of how it saved the day (like the time I had to use the needle and thread to stitch up a groomsman's pants that split up the middle--five minutes before walking down the aisle).  Chances are, you won't use most of these items, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.  Plus, you can make your emergency kit cute if you are so inclined!

Creating the kit and assigning someone responsible to be in charge of it on the big day will definitely help you be a little more stress free on the day of your wedding.  Tomorrow we will go into more details on how to have a completely relaxing wedding day experience, so make sure you come back then!
