Emergency kit must have items you need on your Wedding Day


Getting ready for your Big Day and not quite sure what to pack in case of an emergency? Having planned weddings for several years, I know that as much as we’d love for things to go perfectly, different unexpected emergencies can pop up on the day which is why when coordinating, I never forget my trusty event day bag! The wonderful bag of goodies consists of my wedding day must haves and in this blog, I’ll be sharing a few of the favourite things I like to pack. My kit includes everything you might need plus items you haven’t thought about including hayfever tablets and floss sticks to crochet pins and bottle openers so that if any problems arise, I’ve got the solution to help fix them! I’ve categorised them into five sections so you can pick and choose which ones you include in your kit!

In most cases, you’ll not end up using them but you never know who might on the day! Don’t forget to share this blog with a couple getting hitched soon!
