A Bridal Emergency kit is a must! With weddings, things come up all the time and it’s best to be prepared! Luckily enough for client’s that hire Orchard Avenue Events as their planner, we always have these sorts of supplies on hand. But for those of you without a planner, you may want to consider putting together your own kit for the big day! Here is a list of supplies that I have found handy. While not every wedding will need all of these things, over the course of many years, I have used all of these items at one wedding or another. If you are creating your own kit, it would be expensive to include all of these items, so just choose what suits you and your wedding best!

Must Haves:

  • Tide to go
  • Band aids & alcohol swabs
  • Safety pins
  • Advil
  • Tums or Pepto
  • Deodorant
  • Hair Spray
  • Tape (scotch & duct tape)
  • Twine
  • Scissors
  • Long lighters
  • Nail file/Nail kit
  • Bottled water


Highly Suggested:

  • Wine away
  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Breath mints or spray
  • Bug spray
  • Suntan lotion
  • Bobby Pins
  • Tissues
  • Tampons
  • Straight Pins
  • Sewing kit
  • Krazy glue
  • Zip Ties
  • Ribbon

  • Dental floss
  • Wet wipes
  • Masking tape
  • Exacto knife
  • Hammer & nails
  • Screwdriver

Now, you are ready to tackle anything that might come up on the wedding day!
