Your wedding day is here, and your mind is running at 100 miles per hour. “Where are the hair and makeup people, they were supposed to be here exactly 1 minute ago?” “Is it possible for my dress not to fit anymore? I tried it on within the last 24 hours.” “What am I forgetting? I know I’m forgetting something.”
Wedding day emotions are a little like riding a seesaw. At times, you may feel as though your being weighed down by stress and nerves, but we promise that the joy, excitement and love that will trickle through every inch of your body will always give you enough strength to push off any feelings weighing you down.
With that being said, one of the best things a maid of honor/bridesmaid can do to help a bride’s mind run at a more peaceful 30 miles per hour is to be prepared to put off any fires that may arise by having a Day-Of Emergency Kit that is fully equipped and always accessible! Below is a list of small items that have big ways of saving the day!
Day-Of Emergency Kit Essentials:
- Touch-Up Makeup Kit & Makeup remover
- Hairspray – To pretend as though the summer’s humidity ceases to exist!
- Bug Spray – This one is especially important for a summer Charleston wedding! (Remember, bugs are attracted to bright colors, so a bride in white is a pretty vulnerable target)

- Breath mints
- Band-Aids – New shoes often and unfortunately screams: blisters!
- Deodorant – No explanation needed!
- Medicine (Advil, Benadryl, Tums) – Headache? Allergies? Indigestion? You’re covered!

- Fashion tape – A go-to for fixing falling hemlines or plunging necklines
- Tissues – Got to absorb all of them happy tears
