Reuseable Water Bottle & Snacks

Bring along your reusable water bottle so you stay hydrated all day for your wedding! You will also want some snacks to enjoy before the festivities officially begin. Your day will begin early as you start getting ready. Choose some nourishing and filling snacks like protein bars, fresh fruit, or trail mix. You might speak to your caterer about providing a small breakfast for you and your wedding party

Sewing Kit

Just like many items on this list, you never know when you will need this! A sewing kit could be a game-changer if something unexpected happens. If you are wearing a dress with intricate buttons that need to be hooked, throw a crochet needle in there! You will thank yourself later.


While you will already be wearing something comfortable for getting ready, bring a robe to change into when hair and makeup officially begins. A robe will ensure that your hair and makeup aren’t affected when you need to change into your dress. Even better, provide these to those who are getting ready with you as a special gift!

First Aid Kit

Grab a mini first aid kit while you are shopping for your last wedding kit. This is something that will always be useful. From minor cuts to bug bites, a first aid kit includes everything you need!

Deodorant & Perfume

Bring some unscented, clear drying deodorant. You can freshen up in between photography and dancing. This version is especially great for those that are renting their wedding attire. To smell extra fresh, keep perfume or cologne on hand. It can be sweet to choose a brand new scent for your wedding day. Then, when you smell the scent in the future, it will remind you of your wedding day.

Makeup Remover

At the end of the wedding, you might be dying to take your makeup off. Or, you might have a few places to touch up on your face if it is warmer outside and you have been (happy!) crying. Pack some makeup wipes or micellar water to be safe.

Beauty Essentials

While your hair and makeup artist will make sure you are all set for the full day, keep some beauty essentials on hand. Even the strongest waterproof mascara and powder can wear off with a full wedding day. Here are some beauty essentials we recommend bringing along with you for touch-ups:

  • Hairbrush
  • Curling or Flat Iron
  • Bobby Pins
  • Concealer
  • Mascara
  • Powder
  • Lipstick
  • Nailpolish

Portable Steamer

The first step to keeping your wedding attire crisp is to store it and transfer it well. After that, a steamer does wonders. Bring a portable version to perfect any last wrinkles so that your outfits will look their best!

Floral Pins & Safety Pins

As wedding planners, these are actually some of the most important items on this list. Anything like repinning a boutonniere, repairing a bouquet, reshaping a dress, to ‘fixing’ a broken zipper, these must-have items can do.

Fashion Tape & Heel Inserts

Fashion tape is great for keeping your wedding dress secure. Heel inserts can help you remain comfortable or assist heels to fit perfectly.

Stain Remover Pen

Wine and delicious food, grass, and makeup are all common stains that might appear on your outfit at your wedding. Bring a stain remover pen to fix anything on the spot!

Breath Freshener

Pack some mints and a travel toothbrush so that your breath can stay minty fresh throughout the day.


Weddings are filled with heartfelt emotions and you or someone you know will most likely tear up. Keep some tissues available in your wedding kit.
