The Wedding Day Emergency Kit

Wedding Wednesday

May 1, 2019

I don’t know about you, but for me, I like to feel prepared for ANYTHING to happen on a wedding day. I know that no matter how hard I help a bride and groom plan for their wedding day, there is still always going to be some mishap, something that didn’t go according to plan, maybe the wedding dress got muddy, maybe the groom forgot his shoes, or maybe something else was forgotten. As a photographer, I’ve seen so many unexpected things happen at weddings that I now expect them to happen! I’ve created a complete list of emergency kit necessities, but make sure you customize it to fit your wedding day. You may not actually need all of these items, but this is a good place to get started! On my wedding day, I gathered ALL THE THINGS! I ended up not needing most of the items, but I am still so thankful I had them on hand! It’s always better to prepare for anything and not have anything happen, than to have something happen, and not know how to handle it!

I recommend putting all of these items in a sturdy bag or tote and giving it to your personal attendant to take care of! She will almost always be by your side and always ready to help you!
