Dec 19, 2018 | By: Dave and Kerri Photography
You’ve planned, and planned, and planned some more. You thought about every little detail and every scenario and you’ve even got backup plans for the backup plans you’ve made. You’re well on your way to having the perfect wedding day without any oop’s, uh-oh’s, or oh-shit’s. Still, having a list like this one can be very helpful.
In our 10 plus years of wedding photography, we’ve seen our share of accidents, mishaps, and malfunctions. One of the best ways to help ensure a stress free day is to have a Wedding Survival Kit. We hope this list helps when it comes to putting together your kit.
Tissues – for all those happy tears.
Cash - from tips to trips to the vending machine. Best to be prepared.
Listerine Strips – it’s like having mouthwash in your pocket.
Eye Drops – even happy tears leave you with bloodshot eyes.
Deodorant – Murphy’s Law says that someone will forget theirs. And they will be next to you the whole day.
Lint Roller – although we can remove all the lint in Photoshop, we don’t want to.
Bug Spray – nobody likes party crashers.
Travel Sewing Kit – because the guy who rented that suit before you really didn’t grasp the whole “unbutton a jacket when you take it off” thing.
Heel Stoppers – you want to walk on the grass, not aerate it.
Baby Powder – stay cool and comfortable.
Clear Umbrella – rain is good luck on your wedding day, but not when you want to be outside.
Floss – when you’re done with lunch, it’s best not to keep any leftovers between your teeth.
Granola Bars – hangry brides are the worst!
Hair Spray – even the best updos need attention during the day.
Tide To Go Pen – because red wine doesn’t always stay in the glass.
Super Glue – things break, be prepared.
First Aid Kit – everybody’s excited on a wedding day. Not everybody pays attention to the crack in the sidewalk.
Tums – eating and drinking and drinking and eating all day and you STILL want to be on the dance floor all night.
Phone Charger – you may need to recharge your phone at the end of the night when you change your Facebook status to MARRIED!
Medicine – pain reliever, allergy medicine, and antacids, oh my!
Tweezers – keep those stray hairs and clumped lashes at bay.
Fashion Tape – perfect for failing hemlines and other wardrobe malfunctions.
Extra Earring Backs – if not for you, do it for a friend.
Blister Kit – one word: weddingshoeshurt.
White chalk – Here’s a tip: if something gets on your wedding dress and won’t come out, you can cover it up with the chalk. #mindblown
