Being prepared for any issue that may come up was very important to me because I am that person that always has a wet wipe and pain meds at the ready for anyone that may need them. My wonderful maid of honor tackled the Day Of Emergency Kit for the bridal party. I provided some ideas from my experience as a banquet server (lots of safety pins!) and a wedding coordinator (multiple scissors!). We also used some trusty Pinterest posts for anything we may have missed. I also wanted to create concierge-type bins for our guests to be placed in the bathrooms to help keep everyone comfortable and dancing (lots of Tums!). From there, we hit Target together to fill both needs... watch out world! While it's been a bit since we put these together, here is what I remember gathering for each.
Day Of Kit
Straws Floss Mini toothbrushes Multiple scissors Duct tape Garden shears (to cut the flowers) Hair spray Lint remover (since my dog was in the wedding) Static cling remover Tums Aspirin Deodorant Tissues Wet wipes Bandaids (for blisters and more) Extra shoe heel covers (for the grass) Shout wipes Safety pins Sewing kit Chapstick Hair ties Mints Lipstick (for picture touch-ups ) Coconut water
Guest Care Kits *they were customized appropriately for the men's vs. women's bathrooms
Sunscreen Bug spray Benedryl Air freshener Hair spray Tums Aspirin Tissues Shout wipes Bandaids Chapstick Eye drops Mints Mouthwash Deodorant
I was pleasantly surprised to see all the kits were well-loved and used! Very happy we made the time to clean out the Target sample section.
The bins were also from Target. They snap together and have a handle on top. They worked perfectly!
