What to Pack in Your Wedding Day Emergency Bag

Updated: Aug 1, 2021

Imagine...your wedding is only DAYS away and you've checked just about everything off your to-do list. There is one more thing to remember...pack a day of emergency bag!

Head to target and load up your basket with travel sized items! Or, you can go to Etsy and buy the items already packaged! Saves you time and let's be real, we all need those time savers. Better yet, assign a trusted bridesmaid to tackle this task for you! I remember everything being a blur and forgetting to have a snack while I was getting ready. Thankfully, one of my bridesmaids had an extra snack bar for me so I could keep my energy up!

Here is a list of essentials to include, plus a few items you may not have thought of!

  • Bobby Pins

  • Tooth brush and paste

  • Hand Lotion

  • Mini hair spray

  • Deodorant

  • Perfume

  • Shout wipes

  • Kleenex

  • Breath mints

  • Larabar

  • Tylenol for any last minute headaches

  • Mini sewing kit

  • Eye lash glue (if you plan on false lashes)

  • Liquid Band-Aid

For the groom, pack a similar bag and maybe add an extra snack.
