It is finally your big day!
The weather could not be any more cooperative, the sun is out and shining, your bridal entourage looks impeccable in their respective gowns, the wedding caterer just called to confirm that your guests’ meals are on its way to the reception venue—you beam and breathe in a sigh of relief. For something that you have meticulously planned for months and where even the tiniest detail could go wrong, everything seems to be going surprisingly well. As you alight from the bridal car, however, you stumble and cause the frills of your dress to get caught in the car door causing an otherwise small, but noticeable snag on what would have been your perfect wedding dress. Well, there goes your perfect wedding day.
The scenario above is all too common and is rather inevitable in the midst of a wedding day’s hustle and bustle. But, these little inconveniences can easily be rectified; this is why Bridal Kits nowadays are rather essential. If you have ever been a bridesmaid or a part of the bridal entourage in your life, you would be rather familiar with this kit. It is usually the maid of honor’s job to make these and hand them out as party favors during the bridal shower, but if you are a bride who would like to stay on top of things, then here is an extensive list of things that a bridal kit should particularly contain. Most of the items in the list are contingency supplies but essentials such as your makeup kit, bottled water and your phone should be of paramount importance during your wedding day, so never forget those. Pack these items in a small tote bag and have it easily accessible in the bridal suite during preparations and during your reception dinner or meal. Cross your fingers and hope that you would never have to use the items in your kit listed down below:
1.) SEWING KIT
Have a mini sewing kit at the ready and make sure it is filled with essentials such as safety pins, thread, scissors, buttons, and needles. You will never know when someone might have a wardrobe malfunction that would need immediate tailoring.
2.) BABY POWDER
This is especially important during hot summer days. Baby powder—especially the moisture absorbing kind will help you and your entourage feel fresh all day. It would also help in keeping beaded bodices from scratching or chafing underneath garments.
3.) TAMPONS AND PANTY LINERS
Amidst the bustling preparations and activities, some women in your entourage may forget that it is their time of the month. Even if you do not need it, someone else might. Better come prepared than risk staining their gowns.
4.) MINI FIRST AID KIT
This kit should contain band-aids, anti-septics, liquid bandages and medicines such as pain relievers, antihistamines and antacids. These are important as you will never know when one of the members of your bridal entourage may break into hives because they were allergic to the snacks you have provided for them while they wait for everyone to get ready. In all cases, you must always consider safety first.
5.) STAIN REMOVER PEN
In case the untoward might happen, such as wine spilling all over your pristine white dress, or one of your entourage getting their gowns dirty, this would come in handy and would remedy the situation almost immediately.
6.) BREATH MINTS
As it is your perfect day, you would want to say the perfect “I do” as well as have that picturesque first kiss. Have this at the ready and make sure that your wedding kiss is minty fresh.
7.) HAIR ELASTICS AND BOBBY PINS
You may have your hairdresser at the ready, but it is always best to have some extra bobby pins and elastics should your hairdo come undone at any time of the ceremony. Consider that these extras may not only be of use to you but your bridal entourage as well.
