What every Bride should have on hand
When getting married, there are a lot of things you might need at any one time. You can get Emergency Kits made which has everything including the kitchen sink just in case but today we wanted to talk about what a bride should have in her purse on her wedding day. We have condensed it down to the bare minimums and should fit nicely in most accessory bags.
Hopefully you won’t need it, but if you do you will be glad it’s there! With all the running around, the heat, the excitement, and of course the stress a headache may happen so always ensure you have something on hand and have enough to get you through the day (a sheet is usually enough). We recommend the capsule ones as they are usually easier to swallow rather than the tablets.
Thread and needle in dress colour
You would be surprised how easy one of those little buttons on your dress can fall off, and if you have a really bad catch and the dress actually rips it is good to have a quick repair kit in your bag. Little tears along the hem are expected but if something opens which might reveal more that you want in the photos, best to have a bridesmaid do a quick a sow.
You are going to cry or you might just want to wipe your hands, either way be sure to have a nice compact packet of tissues. Be sure as well to get the softest one you can, they may be a dollar or two more expensive but it’s your wedding day and you’re worth it!
Contacts of people and suppliers
A sheet of paper with your supplier’s names, contacts numbers and alternative contact numbers can save you the trouble of trying to find an email with their name on it. It’s also good to have a list with important people involved with the wedding such as parents of the bride, parents of the groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen and maybe a few friends who will be at the reception just in case you need to get a hold of someone.
A few white hair clips and a few bobby pins can be a godsend, especially when dealing with a tricky vale or a piece of loose cloth. While sowing items can be for extreme cases, sometimes a quick pin does the job just as well. Keep them in a tictac box to ensure nothing gets lost and nobody gets stabbed when rummaging in the bag
Eyeliner, lipstick & roll on deodorant
You might want to do a little touch up before or after the ceremony so have your colours on hand ready to go
Ok technically you might not be able to fit this in your bag but you really should ensure you have plenty of water on the day. I have had some brides collapse due to dehydration before so next to your bag have some cold water with you.
