Obviously, we mean the shoes you plan to wear with the outfit, not the ones you wore to the salon.

In case you are wearing any shapewear below, don’t forget to carry that to put on before you get into your bridal finery!

You won’t feel like your best self without smelling the part, so don’t forget this important thing.

6.  Makeup

Carry some basic products that you know work well for you. This is just in case the products at the salon don’t suit you or you aren’t happy with them. Also, in case you want a very specific lip shade – it’s just better to carry your own!

Again, sounds obvious but brides are often accompanied by people and don’t end up having cash on them. So make sure to carry some money just in case you need it! You don’t want any damsel in distress situations happening.
