I’m putting together little emergency bags for my bridesmaids. They are little cosmetic bags that say “bridesmaid” on them. Here’s what I’m putting in them:
tissues (with their intials on them!)
and a $5 starbucks gift card
What am I missing? I’m putting together a more comprehensive kit of emergency items (with meds, tampons, etc) for all of us to use but I wanted to get them a few personal things to put in the bags. Maybe nail polish? Oh, and this isn’t their gift, either, just a little addition 🙂

I think it sounds great so far! Unless you want to stash gum or tic tacs..

What about bandaids? or maybe tylenol? Maybe I’m just so accident prone, I have a feeling i’m going to need both!

travel sized hairspray/deodorant (or have this in your emergency bag)

I’m not sure whether this would go in the bridesmaids’ bags, but don’t forget a sewing kit!! Aspirin, a hair straightener/curler for last minute fixes, bottled water (you guys will get thirsty).
Also, if you’re prepping in the same room you and your hubby will be staying in after the wedding, make sure it’s all set up for when you get back! So there should be plenty of water/aspirin (if you plan on having a hangover!), mints, snacks, and make sure the bed is all made and ready for you guys to collapse into at the end of the night. Good luck and have an awesome wedding! 🙂

I put little one use eye drops in mine – mainly because 3 out of the 4 girls in the Bridal Party wear contact lenses (myself included) so those little suckers are a god send hehehe
