Snacks and water
We’ll go ahead and get this one out of the way first. We feel that this is one of the most important items that brides often forget. The wedding day is full of go go go leading up to the ceremony and reception, a lot needs to be done; hair and makeup, getting dressed, ceremony, portraits. These things take hours and going that long without eating or drinking anything can stress you out. It can also stress the wedding party out, and cause everyone to be on edge and uneasy. We’ve had a few occasions where the wedding party didn’t eat or drink any water and only drank alcohol leading up to the ceremony and by that time, everyone was tired and hungry and we hadn’t even gotten through the portraits yet. In other words, make sure you eat something and drink water (not just alcohol!!!).
The sewing kit can be a life saver the day of your wedding. Things happen, and having this essential item in your arsenal can help the day go smoothly. Your kit should have safety pins, sewing needles, thread that matches everyone in the wedding party’s outfits, a small pair of scissors, and hem tape. These items will help with snaps, tears, and loose threads that you may come across on the wedding day. The safety pins are especially helpful to conceal undergarments and to keep everything in place.
This is for your stains… Wine away not only gets out red wine stains but colas, teas, coffees, red juices, blood, ink, sauces, anything you may run into on your wedding day. Stacy Burleson with Burleson’s Big Day Events gave us this idea after she had a bride spill red wine on her dress. A few sprays of wine away later, the stain was gone and the bride could enjoy the rest of her day!
