I packed nothing. No incidents.

I had my MOH pack a huge emergency bag. I pretty much used nothing. lol. Although, my concelor, eyeliner, bronzer, chapstick, hairspray, bobby pins, flats, mints, and visine came in hand. Especially after I cried during my daddy-daughter dance! But I literally packed every makeup item, baby wipes, shine tissues, sewing kit, deoderant, water, snacks etc. As the day progresses though, you realize you don’t have time to sit there and fix yourself up every minute. You won’t even care, just as long as you are enjoying yourself, so I’d just bring the staple items. =)

In my bridal clutch (which I carried instead of a bouquet) I had lipstick and lipgloss. Nothing else. I intended to bring tissues and forgot. One thing I could have used that I didn’t have was additional hair product for slicking down my edges when I let down my updo after the ceremony, but I was honestly just fine without it. For the night: makeup remover would have been a plus. I scrubbed my face for several minutes in the shower with soap and water and that stuff barely budged.

I ended up with a raging headache during my reception.  I think the nerves, stress, comotion and lack of sleep finally caught up with me.  Usually I’m anti pain killers and will just ride it out, but not on my wedding day.  Luckily my amazing wedding planner somehow found me IB Profen during dinner.  I’d recommend keeping some in an easy to access location just in case.

Miss.E.91: i literally had an overnight bag with me at the venue including my change of clothes because we were going straight from the venue to an afterparty at a cabin our friends were staying at nearby…so i had everything! and i didn’t use a thing until i changed at the venue out of my dress and into my chill clothes. it was nice to know it was all there though just in case! (makeup, hair stuff, meds, sewing kit, extra clothes, cell phone charger, etc…)

A button on my FIs jacket popped off. Thankfully my wedding planner had giant safety pins with her so she fixed it and no one could tell. 

I had a clutch with lipstick, bobby pins, mints, face powder, my phone and Ib profen. I think I used it all!

kind of off topic but speaking of having my phone with me, one thing I did was asked the pro photographers to take just a couple snaps of me and FI on my iPhone. It was awesome to have while waiting for the pro pics.

I should have had bobby pins…. No matter how much hairspray I had a wisp of hair flying above each ear……..

I would say, know yourself and how your clothes behave. What are the most probable things to happen. If you have buttons, are they veeery secure? Are you prone to headaches? does your concealer need topping up usually? Does your mascara/makeup need retouching when you cry?… Stuff like that. What happens with other people, might not be common with you.

I have tiny ears and the hair right above them doesn’t seem to grow very much so I know that hairdos HAVE to include two bobby pins for that, no matter what

I packed a lot for myself and my bridal party but the only thing we used were batteries. So that may be something to consider, along with all the other stuff PPs have mentioned.

I bought one online–I wish I could remember where for $20 & it had everything you could imagine in a nice little tote.  I use it now for travel.

If I suddenly remember where I got it, I’ll post.

Miss.E.91:  We made a HUGE bridal emergency kit and used NOTHING. It was pretty much a waste of money.
