FREE DOWNLOAD: What Do You Need In A Wedding Day Emergency Kit?

 

Being a wedding planner means not only being there to support the couple, but the bridal party as well. Creating an emergency kit ahead of time is a great way to head off any incidents that could derail an otherwise perfect event.

Most wedding planners of some sort of kit that goes along with them to events, but for Joyce Barbour of Be Our Guest Event Services, an emergency kit is simply “invaluable.”

“When I took my course to become a wedding planner in one of our lessons it mentioned a good planner is always prepared with an emergency kit,” said Barbour. “I don’t think that we have had an event where at least one or more items in our kit have been needed.”

So what should you include when assembling a kit of your own? Here are a few suggestions:

 

  • Hairspray
  • Bobby Pins & Extra Hair Accessories
  • Mints or Gum
  • Feminine Products
  • Deodorant
  • Lotion
  • Tape (body tape, masking tape, & double-sided tape)
  • Scissors
  • Safety Pins
  • Sewing Kit
  • Baby Wipes
  • Tissues
  • Pain Reliever
  • Bandaids
  • Antacid
  • Cough Drops
  • Allergy Medicine

 

To create an emergency kit of your own, assemble products in a clearly labeled, waterproof container and here’s an extra tip from Barbour: “Remember to always replace the items before your next event.”
