Sounds like you are wanting them to stay in their dress shoes/heels all night so this probably won’t apply… but when I was a BM we had floor length dresses so it didn’t matter, and they saved my life… FLIP FLOPS!!

We’re also giving our wedding party the Chasers pills to prevent hangovers and chapstick.

instead of toothbrush and toothpaste…you could try those colgate wisps…they’re pretty effective and quite tiny. Also maybe bobbypins for the girls if their hair is up. and lip gloss

Chocolate!, it depends on how many maids you have, and your budget, you could either go for cheap comedy childhood fave’s or maybe one or two posh ones from a chocolateir (if that how you spell it) maybe choose different ones for each of your girls personalities ?

hehe, your reasons are so cute! I made a seriously tricked-out emergency kit for myself, and now I take it to ever wedding im in. Some of the things it includes are; super glue, mini manicure set, scissors, matches, lint rollers, static cling, baby powder, lots of shout wipes, mini first-aid kit, double sided-fashion tape, non-scented lotion, eye drops, gas-x, midol, sudafed, tums, pepto-bismol, bug-spray, SPF for face and body, purell, mini deodorant, lots of gum, tic-tacs, mouthwash, mini toothpaste, shaving cream and single-use razors, mini sewing kit, lots of safety pins, collapsable comb and brush, bobby pins and hair-ties, hair spray and gel, foot petals, strap perfect, miracle-shield.

PHEW! it know it sounds like a lot, but i swear it all fits in a small bag and it has come in handy so many times! Can you tell ive been a bridesmaid 10 times?

I did something similar for my girls and was working with a holder that was quite small so it could fit in their clutches day of. I got small 1 size portions from here: http://www.lafreshgroup.com/ (deoderant, make up remover, and nail polish remover). They were fairly inexpensive and shipped quickly.

I also included teeth picks w/floss for post dinner touch ups and q-tips. Looks like you have a good list though!

Great suggestions from everyone here!  I just ordered from LaFresh, thanks for the tip @something.blue!  I hope they work as well as they sound… I think my traveling maids will really like them.  I plan to add a packet of Advil and a $5 Starbucks coffee card to the pouches…

I ended up buying two AWESOME damask “hat boxes” from TJMaxx/Homegoods Store and filled it up with travel stuff from Target! There’s a few things I forgot I’ll get later (duh, SAFETY PINS!!!) but i’m LOVING it!
