  • a good lip balm
  • shout wipes
  • wisp travel toothbrushes
  • chewing gum
  • nail polish
  • travel wipes or kleenex
  • travel size toothpaste
  • travel size face wash
  • altoids
  • travel size mouthwash
  • small nail file
  • eyelash curlers
  • tweezers
  • waterproof mascara
  • mini sewing kit
  • sheer lip gloss

these are all things I would put in a Bridesmaid or Best Man survival kit so maybe you can make them do double duty.

Jewelry for the wedding day is a possibility. Or even just something small that each girl would love and appreciate that is specific to them.

Ginger123 has many great ideas. 🙂

I thought of:

  • snacks of some sort to tide them over til the reception – protein snacks: nuts, pb crackers, protein bar; especially good to help stave off hunger; local candy/snacks also a nice touch
  • purse or pocket mirror; also a fairly inexpensive gift to get engraved
  • jewelry or accessories for the day
  • bobbypins /hair pins & hair bands/ties
  • mini hairspray
  • depending on the venue, or if you have out-of-towners in your wedding party: directions/phone numbers to the nearest drugstore, restaurants, etc. & a map of the area
  • postcards of the area for a souvenir
  • any little item they’d love & that is unique to them – stationary/magnet/little figurine/suncatcher/pen – the sky is really the limit on that one
  • tums
  • ibuprofen, tylenol or aspirin
  • tampons

No clue if you have out of towners/hotel guests and are doing welcome bags but a lot of these items can double for welcome bag gifts.

Hope this helps!

@Ginger123: Everything you said.


-Q-tips! These can be a life saver!

-a miniture pack of make-up remover wipes

-a pack of clear foot petals or moleskin pieces (to help stop blisters with shoes)

-clear mascara (apply lightly to any hair/s or fly-aways, it’ll keep them in place)

-clear deodorant stick (can be applied underneath a bra, on inner thighs, etc. to stop friction)

-some pepto bismal or tums chewables


-mini sun screen container (if it’s an outdoor wedding, my sister didn’t have any and started to get a bit red, I had some in my emergency make-up bag…it was a life saver!)

-floss pik
