Bridal emergency kit

A bridal emergency kit for the bride on her wedding day is a must! The kit consists of a bag with wedding day necessities and emergency items that you might need just in case.  We always get asked from the brides what to bring in terms of makeup on the bride’s wedding day. However, makeup items are just a few of many other items that you might need. If you are a bride, this might be the last thing on your mind at the moment with many other things to organise , so it might be a good idea to delegate this job to one of your bridesmaids to do.  Here are some of the items that you can fill in your bag.


  • Bobby pins
  • Brush/comb
  • Small can of hairspray
  • Cotton buds
  • Deodorant
  • Blush
  • Face powder
  • Lipstick/Lipgloss
  • Handcream
  • Tissues
  • Blotting paper
  • Makeup remover
  • Dental floss
  • Tweezer
  • Handheld mirror
  • Nail polish and remover
  • Nail file
  • Lint roller
  • Hand sanitiser


  • Bandaids
  • Aspirin
  • Pads/tampons
  • Eye drops for dry eyes
  • First aid kit


  • Safety pins and straight pins (for corsages and dress emergencies)
  • Stain removing aids (stain remover pen)
  • Earring backings(extras)
  • Panthyhose(extra)
  • Clear nail polish for any runs in pantyhose
  • Double sided holywood fashion tape
  • Gel inserts for heels
  • White or silver flat ballet shoes (when your feet hurts by the end of the night)


  • Straws (to sip from you drink bottles so you don’t get lipstick mess)
  • Sewing kits(with scissors). Thread to match bridesmaids’ dresses
  • Superglue (just in case your heels come off)
  • Umbrellas (colourful ones)
  • Phone charger

You will probably have most of the things on the list at home. It might look like a long list ,but just in case you need it on the day, you won’t have to be running around asking everyone if they have it.

I might be nice enough to put together a ‘starter kit’ for a lucky winner in my next post. So stay tune for details and photos! 🙂
