Wedding Day Essentials! 11 Things You MUST Pack!

Wedding Day Essentials! 11 Things You MUST Pack!
Anything can happen amidst the craziness of a wedding and it’s always good to be well prepared. Get your bestie to help and put together a wedding day emergency kit. Ask her to remain beside you during the function so you’re never far from help. Wrap the kit with a cute ribbon and call it ‘The Bride’s Just In Case’.

1. Hair pins

For last minute flyaways. Or if a hair or flower strand comes off!

2. Make-up

Your lipstick might just bleed by the time you walk into the pheras. Choose one closest to your D-day lip shade and keep it in your emergency kit. Also stock up on a compact (the harsh lights will make you sweat!) and a blush for restoring colour to your face. You don’t want the guests to comment, “The bride looked pale.” Put in a small pack of Q Tips and eyeliner or pencil to repair any mascara or eyeliner mishaps. Plus, a nail file and polish, though we strongly recommend a Shellac manicure!

3. Earring backs

They fall off all the time! Keep some handy to slip on, if needed.

4. Mints

Mushy whispering with your boy? But first, pop in a mint!

5. Perfume

So many hugs to give on your wedding day. Keep a perfume handy!

6. Extra footwear

We know you paid a bomb for those super-cute heels. But, if your feet ache or the heel snaps off, keep a pair of comfy wedges or pretty juttis ready. Break in all your shoes so you don’t get a shoebite.

7. Double-sided tape

Use it as an earring back, set your maang tikka in place or spot-fix a fraying hem.

8. Handkerchief

So you can wipe tears off when you get misty-eyed without smudging your make-up. Keep a small pack of wet wipes handy for accidental spills or splashes.

9. Safety pins

They are a girl’s best friend, after diamonds that is. They’ll repair a broken zip, a slight rip or just to pull your dupatta in place.

10. Battery pack

You don’t want your phone to run out of juice!

11. Med 911

Band-Aid, aspirin and sanitary napkins. *Fingers Crossed* but it’s always good to be well-prepared.
