How to Build the Ultimate Wedding Day Survival Kit

One of my favorite maid-of-honor duties for my friend T's recent wedding was building the wedding day survival kit. I had been stockpiling items for weeks, and by the time the big day arrived, we were ready for any emergency!

You can buy a Wedding Day Survival Kit from ms & mrs that houses 30 must-haves, but if you're more of a DIY type of girl, here's a comprehensive list of everything you'll need to be as prepared as a Boy Scout for your big day:


  • Static Guard
  • Febreze (see if you can find the mini bottle)
  • Tide Pen
  • Double sided tape (I like Hollywood Fashion Tape in various sizes)
  • White chalk (to disguise any stains on the gown)
  • Packing tape (a friend recommended this and she's right, it does everything from repairing headpieces and hems to removing lint)
  • Sewing kit (w/ scissor)
  • Safety pins
  • Brush
  • Hairpins
  • Hairspray
  • Floss
  • Travel toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Gum
  • Mints
  • Clear nail polish
  • Super glue
  • Nail file
  • Tampons
  • Deodorant
  • Advil/Tylenol/Motrin
  • Alka-Seltzer
  • Tums
  • Band-aids
  • Visine
  • Purell
