Spread the items among your bridesmaids so you'll never be without your tools in a clutch. To see what to have on hand to be prepared for every outcome, just keep reading.


Makeup Mishaps:

  • Blotting papers to battle shiny skin in your photos
  • Makeup remover pads if you get misty-eyed
  • Lip gloss to keep you looking polished
  • Cotton buds for smudges
  • Eye drops to quell redness
  • Facial tissues to wipe away what needs to be wiped away

Hair Hijinks:

  • Hairspray for quick pickups (and clingy dresses)
  • Extra hairpins for up 'dos (but ensure the style passes a jump test, too)
  • Compact mirror for periodic dance floor checkups
  • Travel comb and brush

Dress Debacle:

  • Clear nail polish (if you're wearing stockings) to fix runs
  • A nail file, to prevent snags in case you get a jagged nail
  • White chalk to cover any stains or scuffs
  • Dry shampoo to keep sweat at bay under the arms and down the bride's back
  • Feminine hygiene items
  • Band-Aids for blisters and cuts
  • Glue for heel fixes and veil tears
  • Double-sided tape and safety pins to hold whatever needs to e held together together

Kissing Close-Ups:

  • A sample size of your favourite fragrance
  • Antacid, aspirin, and a stomach settller to banish pre-wedding nerves and aches
