The secret to a good wedding is a good plan. A planner will help you organize your thoughts, keep track of the most important parts of your wedding and leave nothing up to just memory. A good planner will be with you from the first meetings about dates and venues to the day of the ceremony when you can pass the planner off to your family to handle those last-minute payments as the reception winds down.

You will have plenty of things to carry on your wedding day. You’ll want to keep things at hand and your bag will need to go from one stop to the next on your big day. Plan ahead and buy a new bag that will blend with the fun of the day and still be functional when you need it most.

Hopefully you won’t need it but keeping a manicure kit on hand for your wedding day is a must-have. Even if you got your nails professionally done just days ago, one cracked nail or a broken toenail can make your day extremely uncomfortable. Keep your hands neat and snag free with a small manicure kit. If you don’t wind up needing, chances are high someone in your wedding party might!

Wardrobe malfunctions the night before your wedding or on your wedding day would be a terrible thing. Protect yourself from slips and movement with clothing tape. You’ll know you look your best and that your dress is always perfectly in position throughout the day so you can enjoy your wedding, worry free.

Waterproof mascara

Emotions are high on wedding days, and you can count on that being true for your big celebration. Happy tears will likely flow for you and most of your friends and family, so protect yourself ahead of time with good waterproof mascara. Nothing is worse than dark stains on a beautiful dress, or even make-up that smudges and moves when a tear or two escapes during key moments in the ceremony or reception.

Breath mints or gum

If you can’t keep a toothbrush handy, or you worry about splattering your wedding dress with toothpaste, avoid the fuss and just keep a few breath mints or gum in your purse. You can be confident that your breath is fresh when you’re hugging the necks of your very best friends and when you’re getting ready for that first kiss as husband and wife.

Bobby pins

Wedding days call for elaborate, perfectly coiffed hair styles. You can get the perfect hair style, but keeping it in place often involves a bit more work and a few emergency bobby pins. Getting married in the outdoors? Keep your hair in place when the wind blows with a few extra pins. Inexpensive and easy to throw into that bridal bag, bobby pins are a must-have for a busy bride and her wedding party.

They say it’s a sign of good luck when it rains on your wedding day. But that doesn’t mean you should let all that time and effort on your hair and make-up go to waste! Keep a bit of confidence and peace of mind by keeping a pretty umbrella close at hand. A bubble umbrella will not only be amazing at keeping your hair and dress dry, but it will also be adorable in all of your wedding pictures!

Dressing gown

You will spend an astonishing amount of time in your undergarments as a bride. Your wedding party is with you as you get your make-up done, as you get dressed, and as you get your hair polished. You will have picture taken with your garter and dress with female relatives. Protect yourself and be comfortable with so many friends and family members around by donning a beautiful dressing gown worthy of a bride.

Keep yourself comfortable when you’re on the go. The entire wedding weekend will involve moving from one place to another, and after awhile you’ll be in the foundation garments required by your wedding attire. It’s hard to bend and move when you’re wrapped in layers of fabric and it’s even harder to lace and unlace your shoes multiple times over the course of the day. Solve the problem easily by keeping a pair of slide on shoes at hand for the weekend.

Travel toothbrush

Breath mints will only go so far at keeping your smile white and fresh. A travel toothbrush is excellent to have on hand so that you can brush your teeth before getting your make-up touched up and before heading down the aisle. Just be careful that you brush gently and avoid and accidental splatters on your beautiful wedding attire!

Hopefully you will never need to repair an issue with your wedding dress or a torn slip, but you should be ready just in case! A travel sewing kit will give you peace of mind if you accidentally step into your dress and tear a small hole or if a bridesmaid needs to repair a quick shoulder strap on her gown before walking down the aisle.

It’s easy to get busy on your wedding day and forget about some of the most important things – like hydration. You need to stay hydrated on your wedding day just like any other day. Keep sipping water throughout the day to keep your body ready to go, your mind sharp, and to avoid any wedding day headaches or fatigue from forgetting. A pretty water bottle will help keep water at hand when you need it the most.

A scrape, a headache, a bit of tummy trouble can all create a bit of trouble on a wedding day. Be ready for the inevitable with a small first aid kid. Then you’ll have the aspirin, bandages and even moleskin you need to clear out the headache, cover that scratch, and protect against blisters.

Stain remover

It would be terrible, but it happens frequently. A tiny bit of lunch falls onto your dress. That bite of cake drops chocolate crumbs onto your white gown. You brush up against a dirty rock as you walk into the church. Clean up the mess with a quick stain remover so that you can walk down the aisle with confidence or preserve the dress appropriately for future generations.

What better way to remove hours’ worth of make-up and stress than with make-up remover wipes? If you’re like many brides, your first night away won’t be your final destination for your honeymoon, so keeping simple make-up remover wipes handy will let you clean your face without much unpacking.

Tears are inevitable on your wedding day. Keep them at bay by daintily dabbing at your eyes with a handkerchief rather than a ratty tissue that can leave fuzz.

A stack of pretty handkerchiefs will give everyone in your bridal party what they need to keep the tears at bay.

Tweezers

A pair of tweezers in your bridal bag will be there for anyone who needs them for that last minute adjustment or pluck so that you can start your wedding day knowing that you look and feel your absolute best.

What’s a wedding party without music? A portable speaker makes it easy to bring a bit of fun and relaxing music with you when you’re prepping with your wedding party. Work on your make-up while enjoying your favorite tunes. Have lunch with some classical music in the background. Weddings don’t happen in silence, so enjoy the day with your favorite type of music with you no matter your location.
