Bridal Kit: Take Care of You on the Big Day
From the people who have seen many different types of bridal catastrophes, ranging from a wardrobe malfunction to serious headaches, take the advice that we offer and prepare in advance of your wedding day.
There are many different troubles that can arise, and while you can’t perfectly predict what the big day will bring, you can plan in advance with a bridal kit full of tools that you may or may not need on your wedding day.
There are, in general, five areas of concern that you should consider when creating this survival kit:
Wardrobe Malfunctions Even the dresses made by the finest designers can suffer a tear or stain. Heels can break, fake nails can fall off, and necklaces can snag. These are just a few of the issues that wedding experts have seen. Prepare yourself with superglue, a sewing kit, a stain fighting pen, lint remover, and safety pins.
Hunger and DehydrationThis is a very important matter to consider. While you have taken care of the guests with a beautiful menu and drinks galore, it is easy, as a bride, to get caught up in the festivities and to forget yourself. For this reason, we recommend that you stash a granola bar and a bottle of water nearby in case you need to rehydrate or refuel during the reception.
Illness Headaches and stomach upset are not all that uncommon among brides. Stress and nervousness can do crazy things to the body. Bring along the bottle of ibuprofen and a small bottle of Pepto-Bismol.
Odor You are going to be sweating because of nerves and the heat of the dance floor. You will likely partake in some of the spiced foods. That means that you might discover that you don’t smell as much like a rose as you had hoped. Deodorant, perfume, a toothbrush, mouthwash, and even floss (helpful for removing spinach from your teeth before another photo is taken) can help.
Skin Troubles Outdoor weddings can cause sunburn. Dry heat can cause dry skin and chapped lips. Cuts and scrapes can happen anywhere. Bring the lip balm, lotion, sunscreen, aloe, and baby powder, just in case.
