  • Wedding: August 2013

If it’s not already in your MOH’s essentails kit: bobby pins, compact powder for touch ups (I forgot this and was a little “glowy” in my photos because of it), perfume, extra pen for guest book, band-aids?

Also I’m not sure about your timeline… but my photog brought us water and granola bars for in between the ceremony and dinner and my DH was so excited because he was STARVING!

Jw1724:  I think you have everything (obviously including what has already been commented, haha). I would just say remember to pack an actual extra bra for the morning after the wedding if you’re spending the night somewhere and going to be seeing people – my friend forgot and she was so uncomfortable having to hug everyone goodbye! I’d make sure to grab a pen or two as well, just in case no one else has one for the marriage license. If you didn’t already grab a pen/marker/whatever is needed to sign your guestbook, bring that as well.  That’s all I’ve got right now!

I was going to mention the underwear too! lol

Make sure your bridesmaid has a few safety pins and a few needles pre-threaded with thread to match your dress AND the bridesmaid dresses. Clear nailpolish. Advil.

Take a few extra reusable shopping bags. They’re small to pack, but you might end up with more odds and ends than you think and they can just be shoved in to the bags.

Jw1724:  Could be in the essentials kit but scissors, tape (for decor if needed), shoes for the next day? And socks? Unless you’ll be wearing your reception shoes the next day.

I almost always forget “next day” shoes. Or pack tennis shoes and no socks lol

Phone charger?

Jw1724:  Oh and this might be irrelevant to you but I always bring contact solution and an extra case because my FI always forgets his and I don’t even wear contacts lol
