- Wedding: February 2008
Way back in December at my bridal shower, I was given a Wedding Day Survival Kit. I thought it was cute, but didn’t think much of it, until a few weeks before the wedding, when I was making a veil. Tulle is the most static-y stuff on earth, and it was clinging to everything, and I thought I’d better get some Static Guard. Then it occurred to me there might be some in the Kit, so I looked: and there was. I decided I would definitely bring it on my wedding day.
Boy am I glad I did! We used so many thing from it we started to refer to it as "The Magic Box." We started with the fold-up scissors, then progressed to the straw (for drinking without disturbing your makeup), the needle and thread, the Advil, the double-stick tape, the dental floss, the safety pins.
But the moment at which I truly realized the genius of the Magic Box is when I got a nasty paper cut on my finger about a half hour before the wedding and didn’t know what to do–I was bleeding, and I was afraid of staining my dress, but I didn’t want to put on a Band-Aid (though there were some in the Magic Box) because it would be ugly. My hair stylist said, "What you need is some Super Glue."
And to think that when I saw the Super Glue in the Magic Box I had thought, "What in the world would I need Super Glue for???"
Yes, you can make this kind of kit yourself, but I would never in a million years have thought of Super Glue.
