It has been a long while since I have posted a wedding blog, but since so many of my friends are getting hitched this season I wanted to give a couple of posts dedicated to my favorite topic!
Today's post is all about my wedding day essentials/a.k.a an emergency kit for the day of!
On my big day one of my most used things was our basket.
My maids and I kept it in our suite while we got ready & ended up using several things from it, & then before the ceremony started, we left it in the guest bathroom. There was also a men's version which was the same, minus the girly essentials!
Some of the most-used items were bobby pins (duh!) I think I may have used half the pack for my own up-do!
Girly products are also perfect to keep on-hand, I love the green package pictured above-they're called Sweet Spot wipes (you can get them from Target!) & they're great for cleansing sweat & more.
Another great essential is Evian facial spray: it's perfect for blending makeup, helping re-style your hair, and keeping you cool.
Even in the fall, down in Alabama it's still warm so keeping cool is a must.
The best part about this emergency kit basket is that after the night is over, you can take all of these items with you on your honeymoon because they're all TSA travel-approved sizes!
Here's a comprehensive list:
Band-Aids (a must for any boo-boos!)
Ice Breakers mints (keeps bad breath at bay)
Tide to Go Pen (perfect for wine stains)
Pantene Air Spray (This is my favorite hair-spray because it doesn't have alcohol in it, which means it doesn't dry your hair out & doesn't make it crunchy)
Dove Spray Deodorant (This is perfect for people to share because it doesn't touch anyones sweaty armpits, but keeps everyone fresh)
Off! Bug-Repellant (this is necessary for outdoor weddings!)
Evian Spray (This can be used in a million different ways, it's a necessity!)
Lotion (a great smelling lotion is the perfect treat)
Band-Aid Friction Block (Y'all, this is a miracle drug. You slide it on your heels and it keeps your shoes from rubbing)
Kotex (Must-haves for all the ladies at your big day)
Toothpicks (Get the mint-flavored ones!)
Sweet Spot Wipes
I hope this was helpful to all you bride-to-be's!
Until next time. . .
