Wonderful as they are, wedding days are famously stressful. This makes a wedding survival kit a must have to get you and your party through the day in a way that you will all look back on with fondness. Think about it.
With all the stress of the day, you know that someone is going to end up with a headache. But who thinks to bring aspirin to a wedding? Someone is going to develop a sour stomach, but who is going to bring antacids? And do you really want to be wandering through your guests trying to scrounge antacids for your new mother-in-law. With a wedding survival kit you won't have to.
It's really quite easy to prepare a wedding day survival kit. Just think of all the little things that someone might need (and therefore require a last minute run to the store) on your wedding day. The stress of a wedding has been known to prompt more than a few women to find themselves in need of feminine hygiene products. If you have some on hand, then the situation only requires a quick trip to the restroom, but if you don't someone is going to have to run to the store. There are so many little things that we don't normally think about until we need them that you should keep in your wedding day survival kit. They are things like aspirin, band aids, clear nail polish, super glue, stain remover, bandages, bobby pins, extra earring backs, etc.
Collect all these little things in one easy to carry kit and you are set. Of course, it's not only the things that you might need to avert a crisis. Your wedding day survival kit should also include things as simple as a drinking straw so you can wet your mouth after you've put on your lipstick. Likewise, it should include a toothbrush, tooth paste, and pack of mints or something to help rid you of a bad taste in your mouth.
And of course, you can't forget extra pins for the corsages, bobby pins for your hair, and tissues. A wedding day survival kit is a great idea for a bridal shower gift. If one or more of your friends don't know what to give you for a bridal shower just suggest they make up a survival kit to help make sure you are prepared for whatever comes your way. Of course, you don't have to rely on your friends. You can find wedding day survival kits prepackaged in a durable case so you don't have to spend an entire day running all over town and to ensure that all the basics are covered.
You can always through in those few things that will personalize your kit for your bridal party. Regardless of whether you build it yourself or save time (and probably money over buying everything individually) by buying it preassembled, a wedding day survival kit will provide you much needed peace of mind on your big day.
