Wedding day DIY survival kits for the cautious bride!

As picture perfect as we dream our wedding day’s will be, the truth is, there will always be hiccups along the way. Rest assured that by preparing a bridal day emergency kit you’re ready in case of any slip ups. A bridesmaid may let lose on the dance floor and her dress may rip, a groomsman may need a lint roller for his tux or the flower girl may spill some juice on her dress - and you’ll be prepared with the essentials to save the day!

Putting together the DIY kits are easy and quite fun to put together. You can pick up all of the items at your local Walgreens or CVS. On the day of the wedding The Maid of Honor or Matron of Honor can pack the items in a tote bag and store in a convenient place at the wedding reception. If you’re not the DIY type, you can purchase already made kits. We love the bridal kits sold at Sephora!
