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.
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.
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.
I can guarantee there will be tears, best to pack eyedrops so eyes look fresh in photos.
Also concealer plus relevant makeup for touch-ups and buffing out any streaks from previously mentioned crying.
Lipstick on the teeth is not an ideal situation.
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.
Just in case you ignore my above suggestion. (I don’t blame you, it’s your wedding after all).
For a shiny nose. Dewy = a glowing bride, shiny = not so chic.
Safety pins/small sewing kit
Accidents happen, dresses get caught on things, it’s best to stay ahead.
Even if you don’t necessarily have your phone glued to you, someone in the wedding party will.
Tame those flyaways.
Baby wipes fix everything. Stains, spills, smells, unsanitary surfaces. Everything.
To freshen up and add volume where needed.
For broken heels and jewellery.
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.
