Ready for Anything – Bride and Groom Emergency Kits

Having assisted in coordinating many weddings over the years, if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s to expect the unexpected.  The tux rental shop forgets to hem the groom’s pants.  Nothing can be found to light the candles.  A bridesmaid’s up-do starts to fall out.  A grass stain gets on the wedding dress during picture-taking.

I make sure to let the couple know that an emergency kit will be waiting for them in their dressing room – just in case.  They don’t have to worry about dragging these items with them to the venue, and can relax knowing that they’ll be prepared for almost anything. 

My checklists are provided below.  What would you add?
