It’s every bride’s worst nightmare: she’s about to walk down the aisle but, minutes before, a loose-gripped flower girl spills juice down the train of her gown. This could cause a full-fledged meltdown, but not for this bride — she’s prepared. Reaching into her emergency kit, she pulls out a stain-removal pen and hands it to one of her bridesmaids who quickly erases any and all evidence of the mishap.

No matter how much preparation goes into your big day, there are bound to be small road bumps that pop up — and that’s where your emergency kit comes into play. Chock full of everything you need and didn’t know you could ever need, a wedding emergency kit is a bride’s best friend on one of the most important days of her life. With toiletries, medicine, clothing savers and more, it will give you the peace of mind to know that you can conquer and small snafu that arises.
