How to make a day of wedding kit

Grab from the knot

While we hope you don't have emergencies on the big day, it's always better to be safe than sorry. We've come up with a list of all those just-in-case items that will ensure your dream wedding goes off without a hitch. The matron or maid of honor should pack these emergency items in a tote bag and stash the bag in a safe but easy-to-access place during the dinner and/or wedding reception.
Aspirin (or pain reliever of choice)
Bottle of water
Chalk (to cover up any last minute smudges or smears on your wedding dress)
Clear nail polish (for stocking runs)
Corsage pins
Dental floss/toothpicks
Eye drops
Extra earring backs
Extra panty hose
Hair pins/ponytail holder
Hand towelettes
Hem tape
Mini sewing kit
Safety pins
Scotch tape
Sedatives (don't ask!)
Small folding scissors
Smelling salts (while we don't expect anyone to faint, it has been known to happen)
Spot remover
Static-cling spray
Straws (so the bride can stay hydrated without messing up her lipstick)
The matron or maid of honor should keep the following items on hand at all times in a small evening bag for the bride:
Breath mints/spray
Cellular phone
Cash (because you never know)
Hair spray
Linen handkerchief
Makeup (for touch-ups)
Nail file
Tampons/sanitary napkins
Optional Items
Granola bars or other easy-to-carry snacks
