What to Pack for a Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Alex Cole Photography

No matter how much time you spend meticulously planning every minute of your Wedding day, there is always a chance something could go wrong! As Wedding planners, we like to have all the tools on hand to solve (almost) any unforeseeable crisis that could pop-up. This is where a Wedding Day Emergency Kit comes in! We recommend delegating the emergency kit to your Maid of Honor or another close friend, so you don't need to worry about it, but you will still have everything you might possibly need on hand if an issue arises (which we hope it won’t!). By planning ahead for the unexpected, you can help alleviate some of the stress of your Wedding day. Here are our must haves for your kit (and if you want to just buy it all in one place, here are all our recommendations in one list!)


  • Hairspray

  • Bobby pins

  • Blotting papers

  • Chapstick/Lipstick

  • Nail file

  • Makeup remover

Wardrobe Malfunctions

  • Mini sewing kit/Scissors

  • Double sided fashion tape

  • Stain remover stick

  • Safety pins

  • Extra earring backs

  • Superglue


  • Deodorant Spray

  • Toothpicks/floss

  • Toothbrush/toothpaste

  • Tampons/pads

  • Tissues

  • Q-tips

  • Contact solution/eye drops

First Aid

  • Allergy Medicine

  • Ibuprofen

  • Tums/Pepto Bismol

  • Blister Pads/Band Aids


  • Water

  • Reusable Straw

  • Lint Rollers

Pro tip! It's super important to remember to stay hydrated on your wedding day and we recommend bringing a straw so you can continue to hydrate throughout the day without messing up your makeup! We love these silicone straws from Amazon that even come with their own convenient carry case.

  • Snacks (granola bars, trail mix, anything the bride will eat!)

  • Crochet Hook

Pro tip! If your dress has a lot of buttons a crochet hook is a super useful tool to help your MOH or Mom get all those buttons done in a snap!

  • Blister pads/band aids

  • Moleskin

Pro tip! Never heard of Moleskin before? It’s a soft adhesive cushion you can stick on the back of your ankles or any other spot your shoes may cause friction, and it helps to prevent blisters from forming. We recommend using this in the morning before you put your shoes on to make sure you don’t get any annoying blisters to stop you from rocking your heels and dancing the night away!

  • Medicine

  • Allergy medication

  • Ibuprofen

  • Tums/Pepto Bismol

  • Portable charger

Pro tip! While you could always bring just a phone charger, we recommend a portable charger so you (or someone in your bridal party) can charge any electronic they may need throughout the day. Don’t forget to bring the cables!

  • Heel Stoppers

Pro tip! If you are getting married outside and are planning on wearing heels these are a must have! They help keep you from sinking into the wet grass and protect your heels from getting dirty!
