♥ 18 Essentials every Bride needs on her wedding day ♥
I always recommend putting together a little wedding day emergency kit to have with you in your room when you get ready. I have seen it all from the zipper on the bride's dress breaking as she gets into it and having to be sewn in, to a heel break as the bride was set to walk down the aisle and many other wedding day surprises.

Most of the weddings that I photograph are at locations where a corner store is not nearby or simply not an option so it's best to come prepared with everything you need.

Here are a few must haves:

  • Scissors Small and sharp! An absolute must have in the bridal suite.
  • Needle & Thread Hopefully you won't have to use it but if you need it you need it.
  • Extra Earring Backs I've been to a lot of weddings where an earring back gets dropped on the floor rendering the earrings useless so bring extra backs.
  • Sunscreen You don't want a burn that lives on in your wedding photographs forever. Besides arriving to your honeymoon with a sunburn is never fun.
  • Lint Roller for the boy's suits
  • Static Cling for bridesmaids' dresses
  • Pepto Bismol & Advil and anything else to settle tummies and headaches
  • Feminine Hygiene supplies
  • Band Aids for blistered feet
  • Krazy Glue or whatever else might work should your heel go astray.
  • Bug Spray
  • Stain Remover Somehow a groom's collar always ends up with lipstick on it from hugs. Better yet bring 2 shirts for the groom!
  • Crochet Hook if you have a dress with a million tiny buttons that do up with tiny loops
  • Safety Pins
  • Bobby Pins
  • Lipstick Extra tube of your wedding day lipstick for touch ups
  • Mints because gum always looks terrible in photos
  • Handkerchief for happy tears, looks much better than a wadded up ball of kleenex
