On your wedding day, there are some details you can keep organized by simply remembering to bring these supplies into your dressing room.  It is recommended that you should have your maid of honor or someone else you trust put together your Just-In-Case supplies.  Here are some items to consider from top to bottom:

  • Bobby pins
  • Small comb
  • Hair Spray – Fly-aways can ruin your perfect look.  Always plaster unwanted strays down, particularly with outdoor weddings.
  • Spare bindi(s)
  • Tweezers
  • Scissors
  • Earring backings – It’s always good to have extras because they are so small and slippery that you may easily loose one.
  • Facial tissue
  • Extra compact of any powder make-up you’re wearing – On Amy’s wedding day, her sister dropped her powder foundation compact and the powder crumbled into hundreds of pieces all over the floor.  Good thing she had an extra one!
  • Aspirin
  • Water
  • Sprite or Tums to calm the butterflies in your stomach
  • Small snack
  • Mints – Not gum.  Have a few mints before you walk down the aisle.  You don’t want to be reading your vows or kissing your new husband with bad breath.
  • Deodorant
  • Nail clippers and a nail filer
  • Nail glue
  • Safety pins
  • Tampons or pads
  • Clear Band-aids
  • Spare pair of shoes – In case a heal breaks or your shoes get dirty, you have a spare pair!  Just make sure that it matches your dress and has the right height so the front of your wedding dress doesn’t drag on the ground.

    I would say rather than safety pins take the heavy duty lockable nappy pins with white heads. They were a lifesaver at my wedding when we tied my train up for dancing. The ribbons that were in the dress didn’t last very long at all. The weight of the dress was far too much for them!

    Great post. Best to be prepared. Might want to have a little cash on hand as well in case you need to send someone to the store to pick something up. Nice to ask them to go with your cash and not expect them to use theirs.

    Definitely bring a stick of white chalk just in case you get little spots(stains) on your dress.

    Wow, what a great list. Its crazy how much of that will actually be used that day, or missed if you dont have an emergency kit. Great job compiling it!

    – Tip for earrings… if you’re prone to reactions from silver/nickel earrings… coat the prong/stem/back with a thin coat of clear nail polish :) Works wonders, no contact with skin, thus to allergic reactions to worry about!

    – Liquid bandaid … for any zits that may have popped, a light coat of this under primer & makeup, seals it off and makeup application is smooth

    – Clinical Dri deodorant… best to apply at night prior to bed, but day of- can apply to palms, soles, (even to your forehead to keep bangs from becoming sweaty and sticking)… holds back the excessive perspiration

    – lint roller!

    – scotch tape! if using glitter eye shadow, if it falls this will pick it right up rather than smear it with a qtip or tissue
