10 Things to Pack in Your Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Jul 2, 2024

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want everything to go off without a hitch. While a wedding planner typically handles all the essentials, it’s always a good idea to be extra prepared. Whether you don’t have a planner or just want to be ready for anything, having a well-stocked emergency kit can be a lifesaver. Here are 10 must-have items to include in your wedding day emergency kit to ensure your big day runs smoothly.

1. Advil

Weddings can be long and sometimes stressful, and headaches can strike at the most inconvenient times. Having Advil or another pain reliever on hand can help you or your bridal party stay comfortable throughout the day.

2. Tampons and Pads

Periods can be unpredictable, and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Make sure you have tampons and pads in your kit, not just for yourself, but for anyone in your bridal party who might need them.

3. Mints

Fresh breath is a must, especially for those up-close-and-personal moments. Pack a tin of mints to keep your breath fresh for all those photos, kisses, and conversations.

4. Bobby Pins and Hair Ties

Even the most secure hairstyles can start to unravel after hours of dancing and celebrating. Bobby pins and hair ties can help fix any hair emergencies and keep everyone looking their best.

5. Sewing Kit and Fashion Tape

Wardrobe malfunctions happen, but with a small sewing kit and fashion tape, you can tackle any rip, tear, or fit issue quickly. Whether it’s a loose button or a hem that needs a quick fix, these tools are invaluable.

6. Safety Pins

Safety pins are versatile and can come to the rescue in many situations, from securing a dress to fixing a broken zipper. Make sure you have a variety of sizes in your kit.

7. Antacid

Nerves and rich food can sometimes lead to an upset stomach. Having antacid tablets on hand can help soothe any digestive issues and keep you feeling great throughout your special day.

8. Tide Pen

Stains are almost inevitable at a wedding. A Tide pen can help you tackle spills and stains on the spot, ensuring you and your bridal party look flawless all day long.

9. Pen and Extra Envelopes

Having a pen might seem obvious, but it’s easy to forget. You might need to sign last-minute checks, write thank you notes, or jot down important details. Extra envelopes are handy for any loose items or last-minute tips.

10. Snacks and Water

While not initially on the list, these are essential. Keeping your energy up is important, so pack some non-perishable snacks like granola bars, nuts, or dried fruit, along with bottled water to stay hydrated.


Having a wedding day emergency kit packed with these essentials can help you avoid potential stressors and keep the focus on celebrating your special day. If you have a wedding planner, they’ll likely have all of this covered, but it never hurts to be extra prepared
