Updated: Aug 24
You will realize as your big day gets closer that the planning is never over. All the previous months were spent picking out the venue, photographer, videographer, color schemes, invitations, caterer, and the list goes on. You have your schedule down and the itinerary for when everyone needs to be ready. Everything seems to be planned perfectly but there are items that we tend to see many brides leave out.

1. A Steamer
With all the back and forth on wedding days, you or a bridesmaid is bound to need a quick fix before the ceremony. You don't need anything fancy. There are plenty of small portable steamers that will come in handy. I've listed a couple below to check out.
2. Emergency Kit
This is a perfect task for one of your bridesmaids. Give her a list of some essentials that may be needed periodically throughout the day. Here are ten ideas to get you started:
Medicine- headaches are bound to happen
Deodorant- of course
Straws- don't mess up your makeup
Bobby Pins- for all those fly aways
Bandaids- just incase
Stain Remover Pen- you can never be too careful
Lint Roller- use it right before the ceremony starts (this is a great tool for groomsman to have)
Lipstick- you will be eating and drinking throughout the day and will need another coat
Breath Mints- freshen up
Perfume- buy a special brand so you can associate that perfume to your special day
3. Pretty Hangers
This is a topic i don't see often enough. This can make for a great photo from your photographer to display your dresses.

4. Second Pair of Dancing Shoes
Have you ever tried dancing in heels? Don't let this night end with a twisted ankle or your feet covered in blisters! Plan to have an extra pair of shoes handy to switch out for the reception. Comfort can still be cute!
5. Contact Person For All Vendors
Keep putting others to work for you. It's your day after all. Having someone that can take phone calls from different vendors is a big help. Caterer's are going to want to know the best places to park. Photographers want to make sure everyone is ready for the next phase of photos. The questions will keep coming and you need to be able to stay focused and enjoy your day.
