Bridal Emergency Kit Checklist

By  |  0 Comments

I don’t really like the phrases “bridal emergency kit” or “wedding day emergency kit” because they sound alarmist. I prefer to think of them as “kits for calm!”

Bridal Emergency Kit Checklist

I must confess that I am the queen of list making. I have a computer list for travel that I dutifully follow two weeks prior to a trip departure, while my husband throws everything in his suitcase an hour before we leave! But, I do think organization conquers stress and I want you to be as relaxed as possible on your wedding day.

With this goal in mind, I have compiled a comprehensive bridal emergency kit list. Assemble your bridal emergency kit a couple of weeks before your wedding so you are not scurrying around the last minute. Keep the items together in a large tote. Ask one of your bridesmaid’s to take charge of it for you. A few Etsy shops sell prepared or custom kits.
