Even if it says it's going to be nothing but sunshine and rainbows on your big day, make sure that each of you brings along a trusty umbrella...just in case.
Most couples need to travel to their wedding venue. Whether you're traveling by car or by plane, you're sure to end up with a few wrinkles. Pick up one of these lifesaving hand-held steamers to bring with you. When you look back at your flawless wedding ensembles, you'll be happy you did.
Now, we're not saying you need to take a sewing class, but chances are someone at your wedding will have a basic knowledge of how to work a needle and thread. It's always a good idea to have these things in your emergency kit in case something pops, snaps, or rips, like a button from your bustle or the hem falls out of your pants. Trust us, we've seen it all! Bring along some safety pins too in case you don't have enough time to sew something.
You'll want your breath smelling minty fresh right before you go in for your official first married kiss. Bring a disposable toothbrush and travel-sized mouthwash with you and freshen up right before you walk out.
You'll have so much going on that day, so it's easy to get distracted and forget to eat. Eat something substantial for breakfast, and bring a high-protein snack with you to munch on while you wait for dinner. No one wants to be hangry on their wedding day!
These little guys are always great to have on hand, well beyond your wedding day. From fixing a snagged nail to clipping a stray thread or removing a hang-tag, they can solve an endless list of problems. Plus, look how cute they are!
It's always a good idea to do a test run with your makeup artist before the big day. While you're there, ask which lip color they will be using and buy yourself a matching one to carry with you in case of emergency. It'll also be fun to break it out for special occasions, like anniversaries, down the road.
This one should go without saying, but we're gonna put it here just in case. You and your partner should both have a travel-sized hairspray with you for little touchups.
From the happy tears to the delectable cocktails, there will be plenty of reasons why your makeup may need a little touch-up throughout the day. Make it easier by having makeup wipes handy.
