Wedding Day Emergency Kit

By Natalie Willingham – Bridal Makeup & Hair Specialist

Wedding day emergency kit I hear you cry, what on earth’s one of those and what do I put in it? More frequently I’m meeting brides who have a wedding day emergency kit for on the day not just for themselves but for their bridesmaids and guests too, containing all those extras, just in case they are needed.

The atmosphere of the wedding will be created by lots of things: the people who are there, the décor, the style and the music. It might help to do yourself a mood board with clippings from magazines to inspire you and narrow down the style you’re after. Think about things like the lighting, maybe creating scents with flowers and candles and little random things like a treasure hunt for after your wedding breakfast or a few outdoor games.Continue reading
