I’m in the middle of typing up my last bridesmaid newsletter, outlining some of the changes and such that have happened since the last one was sent out with a schedule attached.
One of my BM’s has requested that I include a mini packing list for day-of essentials for bridesmaids, which I thought was a cute idea, considering all my BM’s are coming from far and farther to be in my wedding and I wouldn’t want anyone to forget something important (like their shoes!).
So, lay it on me- what do you think are some good must-have accessories and essentials for the Day Of? So far, my list includes:
Makeup, including mascara, eye shadow, blush, lipstick
mini-purse (for keeping it all in)
What else should I include?

Kirby grips/hair pins in case hair falls down if it is up. Hair brush/comb if it is down.
Mini can of hair spray if possible
Any particular underwear needed to wear the dress – sorry, random one, but in case they need a certain colour so its not showing through or anything.
Nail varnish for any repairs

Allergy Pills, Perhaps some antacid pills (for stomach issues), Maybe a granola bar since I have seen many brides and bridesmaids go hungry on the day of the wedding because they are so stressed. How about some on the go stain remover just incase you are clutsy? Pack of tissues incase you are emotional, Mini sewing kit would be a good idea just incase. You never know what might happen

Sewing kit is essential! After my last fitting, I had my seamstress raise the bustle up a bit, but she must have sewn through my overlay to the satin underneath because I had this VERY noticable lump on my butt! I had a friend who knows how to sew and she snipped it off and sewed it back on in about 5 minutes! Crisis averted!
Also, breath mints, safety pins, kleenex, Tide-to-go stain remover!
