So I’ve been searching online, and there are lists upon lists of what to include, but i’d like to know – what did you actually use? Anything you wish you had but didn’t? Anything you had but didn’t use?<br /><br />I need to make my own for our wedding on the 31st and trying to figure out what to put in it!

Tide pen. safety pins, corsage pins, bobby pins. Lipstick youre wearing for touchups. Eyelash curler for at the last minute. snacks. Straws.
I’m not married til next May but those are what I think I would need most.

I made one for my friend’s wedding this year – I was one of her bridesmaids, and the things that were used were the band-aids, the super glue, the safety pins, and the energy drinks and the crackers.
Oh and the small spray bottle of hairspray. We went to the beach to the photos and it was windy. Thank god we sprayed our updos because we would have look so bedraggled for the reception otherwise

2YorkiesMama: All of those items we are having in our bathroom baskets, so I won’t need to worry about carrying those.
But the straws are a WONDERFUL idea. That would seriously help from getting lipstick everywhere.
TheGorgonMedusa: Thanks for the suggestions! A few snacks and energy drinks sound like they would be great to have on hand!

jenilynevette: Oh they definitely were. We were chugging on them during the wedding party shoot since we’d been up since 7am for hair and make-up.

I meant to make one, but totally spaced it. I wished more than anything that we had any type of snacks. Also, one of my bridesmaids brought a curling iron and hairdryer and I was soo grateful as the tendrils hanging out of my updo went flat between photos, and my ring bearer had an accident before the ceremony and needed his pants dried, hah.

I have had 4 daughters get married. We used a tide pen, had a small sewing kit on hand to match BM dresses just in case (never used it), some hairspray, safety pins, and a small can of Static Guard – do this one! If you aren’t getting married in the hot Summer, you will want the static guard on hand. You can get small cans in the travel size aisle. Saved my bacon at DD #1’s February wedding!
If you make sure to plan meals before the wedding you really don’t have to worry about food/drink stuff. We made sure to eat breakfast and get box lunches (Panera) to eat between the salon and getting ready.
