What kind of bridal accessories should I have on hand for touch-ups or emergencies?

Sanity Saving Bridal Accessories

No matter how simple and easy you expect your wedding to be, every bride wants to look her best. It doesn't matter if you're getting married wearing shorts and a t-shirt, or a full-length gown, the bride and the bridesmaids need to have certain sanity saving reinforcements to make sure the day is as stress-free as possible. Get a small plastic portable tote, place it out of the way where guests won't see it, but let the bridesmaids know where they can find it if necessary. Fill it with the following must-have bridal accessories:

  • A light body spritz for freshening up.
  • Hand sanitizer.
  • Extra deodorant
  • Safety Pins
  • Hair clips
  • Bobby pins
  • A mini sewing kit including a small pair of scissors, thread and a needle.
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Powder
  • Breath mints or hard candy
  • Extra toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Dental floss
  • Energy drinks
  • First aid supplies
  • Extra gel shoe inserts
  • A nail file and/or nail clippers
  • A couple of energy bars (especially if you or one of your bridesmaids has low blood sugar and needs a boost of energy between meals)
  • A hair brush
  • A small mirror
  • A small container of hair gel or hairspray

Chances are, you won't need all of these items, but they're good bridal accessories to have on hand!
