Make Your Own Emergency Wedding Kit

If you want to put your own personal touch on the happy couple’s wedding emergency kit, you can make your own. Use, or make if you are crafty, a bag or tote that reflects their personality and is practical.

  • Clear nail polish – to stop runs in nylons
  • Safety pins
  • Bobby hairpins
  • Mirror
  • Sunscreen
  • Lint brush roller – the sticky tape kind
  • Non-slip shoe grips – the sticky shoe grips that go on the bottom of shoes. The brides shoes are probably brand new and slippery
  • First aid kit
  • Lotion
  • Ibuprofen
  • Antacids
  • Sewing kit
  • Deodorant
  • Static spray
  • Super glue
  • Baby wipes
  • Mints or mouthwash
  • Camera

As a little something to add to your emergency wedding kit gift, think of what would make the bride, or groom, laugh, smile, and maybe even cry a little. It may be a picture, memento, or even an heirloom. That personal touch will make the gift all the more memorable.
