As someone who has been a maid of honor twice, a bridesmaid for two other weddings, and a ring bearer (long story), I’m very familiar with wedding-day mishaps. Wardrobe malfunctions, beauty blunders, spills and stains, allergic reactions—they’re all par for the course. While you can’t be prepared for every problem you might encounter on your wedding day, a little preparation can go a long way. To ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible, a well-stocked wedding day emergency kit is an absolute must.
In addition to your basic personal-care items (deodorant, hairspray, dental floss, makeup for touch-ups), there are a few important extras you might not have thought of. But trust me, you’ll want them on-hand when disaster strikes. Whether you’re the bride, a member of the wedding party, or simply a very thoughtful guest, these are the essentials you need in your wedding day emergency kit.
Outdoor wedding? You’re going to need a pair of these. They slip over the ends of your shoes and stop your heels from sinking into grass or getting stuck in a sidewalk crack. I wore them for my sister’s outdoor wedding and can attest that they saved my shoes (and my ankles) as I was sprinting across soggy grass before the ceremony. 10/10.
Don’t let a broken shoe derail your dance floor plans. This clear, fast-drying sealant offers a quick (and permanent!) fix for detached heels, loose soles, and other footwear emergencies. It works on all types of materials, including leather, vinyl, rubber, and canvas, so you’re covered no matter what style you’re wearing.
