Getting married is a pivotal part of a couple’s journey to their life together, and the day of the wedding is one of the most stressful moments that a couple might face. The chances of things not always going according to plan is high and so are the possibilities for the bride and groom to worry, stress, and sometimes argue before the function even starts. In moments like these it is essential to do some planning for your wedding day and make a little emergency kit. This will come in handy for the brides and grooms to tackle any inconveniences and hassles that they might come across.
The easiest way to make an emergency kit is to use an old shoebox and insert whatever is considered to be handy on the day of the wedding. Essentials includes:
- Hair brush or comb
- Perfume and cologne
- Makeup bag
- Extra hair pins
- Extra shirt buttons for the groom
- Handy sewing kit which would consist of needles, buttons, safety pins, threa and a pair of scissors
- Shoe polish for the groom’s shoes
We also recommend that these toiletries be included in the survival kit as chances are high that they will come in handy for both the bride and groom:
- Sanitary pads
- Insect repellant, if the function is to take place outside
Other things that can be included but are not quite necessary include:
- Extra money
- Glue in case of a shoe heel breaking
- Camera batteries
- Identification cards
- Important phone numbers of family members
- Small flashlight in case of a blackout
- Snacks and drinks
When making an emergency kit for the wedding, the couple can get together and make a checklist of all the items they or the wedding party might need and eventually start putting them together. Many couples like to decorate their kits with their initials or their reception colour scheme and keep them safe for their children to see in the future.
These emergency kits are extremely important for stress-free brides and grooms because anyone in the wedding party might require anything – someone might end up with a tear in their lehnga or the lose a shirt button – and you don’t want them adding to what is always an extremely stressful day. The survival kit offers an immediate solution to minor problems before they turn into a major issue on the day of the wedding.
If you’re too lazy, or just simply too busy to sit down and make a survival kit for yourself, don’t worry! There are a wide range of emergency kits available in the market that are affordable as well as time saving. They cater to all your needs and are also cute.
Getting married is already very stressful, don’t stress yourself out even more on minor inconveniences. Make an emergency kit for yourself or invest in one if you don’t have the time and have your wedding day go off without a hitch. And do remember to bring the emergency kit with you or ask one of your dependable friends or family memebers. Good luck brides and grooms!
