2019 Wedding Survival Kit for Brides

Wedding Day Emergency Kit

The Bride’s Complete Wedding Day Emergency Kit for 2019

Your wedding day emergency kit is a must-have for brides who like to cover their bases and be ready for anything.  No matter how detailed your day-of wedding day itinerary is, shit happens.  Little, unexpected things come up and even with the schedule of events it the simplest thing can feel like a nuke is about to go off.

Now, this list is extensive and any bride wishing to check every one of these boxes is going to need a moving van to hold it all.  Instead, sit down with your bridesmaids over some wine and pick the ones that you feel are a must – and that can fit in a standard size tote bag.
