I’m currently putting together a huge list of things (tissues, shout wipes, bobby pins, sewing kit, etc. etc. etc.) to put into a big "survival kit" for myself and my bridesmaids for the wedding day.
I pulled a lot of ideas from the post Mrs. Bee put up in the blogs a few weeks ago, but I’m look for more to add.
What are some items you definitely plan on having in your surivival loot?

- Band Aid Friction Block Stick
- Rewetting Drops
- Contact Solution
- Extra pair of contacts
- Femine Hygiene Products/Aleve/Midol
- Some kind of itch thing for bug bites
That’s off the top of my head! 🙂

– Eyelash glue
– Curling iron
– Blister bandaids
– Painkillers (Tylenol, Motrin)
– Double-sided tape, safety pins, and sewing kit
– Hand sanitizer
– Those toothbrush things you can slip over your finger, as well as some floss-on-a-stick (my bridesmaids really used these)

The FI picked it up for me when he was at RiteAid a little while back bc he knows how I abuse my feet for pumps. I didn’t even know they made such a thing! It’s ingenious!
I’ve only had to use it once thus far when my pumps were making the back of my heel (where the wrinkly skin is?) all irritated and was starting to hurt. I swiped it on 1-2 times; it did leave a bit of tiny residue but it left pretty quickly, and didn’t notice the pain thereafter. So, I would say it should do the trick and will be especially helpful in a bridal survival kit and I plan on putting it in the women’s bathroom basket also. You know after dancing all your female guests would love you for having that! =)
I think it’s only a couple bucks so it’s worth trying out.

Baby wipes or wetnaps. I brought these on a 2-week x-country trip once and found them to be multi-purpose and will never go anywhere without them again! Great for getting rid of deodorant on your dress (or bridesmaids’ or guests’), good for a little freshen up before the ceremony or while dancing (wipe on your wrists, back of your neck, anywhere to cool off where you are not wiping off make-up), good for sticky kids, etc. My reception is in a tent in our back field so I know they will be useful.

One thing I would have on me is a steamer. Our planners had one and it really came in handy with the wrinkled bm dresses that had traveled in suitcases cross country.
Also some extra ribbon, perhaps in your wedding colors. When our cake was has hideous orange on it, our planners covered it with ribbon they had on hand to save the day. You never know what you will need it for!

I wholeheartedly agree with the moist wipes, except I would go with like the Ponds Face Wipes but generic brand. They will work for everything and great for your guys as well to get some of the oil & sweat off their face!

FYI-All the friction stick is is deodorant. Spray on works best.
