Being the maid of honor means more than some girls realize.  Yes, your dress might be slightly different, you might get to read a special reading during the ceremony, and you get to tell embarassing stories about your best friend during your speech.  Along with all that fun stuff a good maid of honor will brush up on her girl scout handbook and be super prepared for the brides big day.  Pack a bridal emergency kit to bring along to the venue.  This little bag of tricks will get your bride out of any jam that comes her way on her special day!

Bridal Emergency Kit Items:

  • Sewing Kit, including safety pins and small scissors
  • Clear nail polish (helpful for stocking runs)
  • Nail file
  • Nail polish in the bride’s shade
  • Makeup
  • Extra stockings
  • Hairspray
  • Brush and comb
  • Bobbypins and hair elastics
  • Hairdryer
  • Bounce Sheets for Static-cling
  • Tissues
  • Lint brush
  • Earring backs
  • Iron/steamer
  • Baby powder or white chalk (also useful for getting out last-minute spills on a white dress)
  • Eye-drops (look for redness reducing)
  • Contact lens solution
  • Antacid
  • Mints
  • Tampons and pads
  • Headache medicine (bring two different kinds in case one of the bridal party is allergic)
  • Band-Aids
  • Mirror
  • Bottle of water
  • Moist towelettes
  • Camera for taking getting dressed candids
  • List of vendors phone numbers
  • Wristwatch
  • A copy of the wedding vows
Believe me…this kit will come is super handy when the bride is freaking out because her bustle broke before the first dance!
Have no fear, a prepared maid of honor will always save the day!

One of my favorite sites offers engaged couples a place to put all their wedding information live on the web.  www.eWedding.com allows you to put vital wedding info, such as date, location, etc…  It also offers extras like adding music, uploading photos, adding pre-wedding events, wedding party information, and putting up cute stories about you and your man!  Guests go to the site…search your name and are able to view it all!  They can also RSVP to events, see your registry, take polls and quizzes, and leave comments!

Daisy did a sample site to show how easy breezy it is.  Check it out!
