21 items you need in your wedding day survival kit

1.

Pain killers

Ibuprofen, Panadol, its completely up to you. Weddings can be highly stressful and emotional, the last thing you need is a searing headache putting a dampener on your nuptials. Anti-nausea may be a good idea too, just in case the nerves upset your stomach.

2.

Band-Aids

You’ve most likely splashed out on a very special pair of wedding heels and odds are, in an effort to keep them fresh and clean, you haven’t broken them in. Next thing you know you’re hobbling down the aisle hoping no one notices your blisters. No thanks.

3.

Insect repellent

Especially if your wedding is outdoors you never know when a pesky mosquito may strike, and if you’re particularly inclined to get bitten and have a reaction, it can’t hurt to pack antihistamines too.

4.

Eye drops

I can guarantee there will be tears, best to pack eyedrops so eyes look fresh in photos.

5.

Tissues

Again, tears.

6.

Lipstick

Also concealer plus relevant makeup for touch-ups and buffing out any streaks from previously mentioned crying.

7.

Small mirror

Lipstick on the teeth is not an ideal situation.

8.

Water

It may be tempting to lap up the free-flowing bubbles, but spacing drinks out with water is a sure-fire way to stay hydrated and feel your absolute best.

9.

Hydrolyte

Just in case you ignore my above suggestion. (I don’t blame you, it’s your wedding after all).

10.

Blotting paper

For a shiny nose. Dewy = a glowing bride, shiny = not so chic.

11.

Safety pins/small sewing kit

Accidents happen, dresses get caught on things, it’s best to stay ahead.

12.

Deodorant

13.

Phone charger

Even if you don’t necessarily have your phone glued to you, someone in the wedding party will.

14.

Tampons

15.

Earring backs

16.

Hairpins

Tame those flyaways.

17.

Baby wipes

Baby wipes fix everything. Stains, spills, smells, unsanitary surfaces. Everything.

18.

Dry shampoo

To freshen up and add volume where needed.

19.

Super glue

For broken heels and jewellery.

20.

Fashion Tape

21.

Dental floss/mints

For a fresh first kiss.

You know what they say, fail to prepare – prepare to fail. And while you’ve definitely got enough to think about on your big day, it’s the perfect task for your maid of honour or mum to take on.
