3 Wedding Day Essentials

With wedding season in full swing, it’s time for brides to go through their to-do lists and check off any last minute items before the big day. The seating chart is probably already color-coded, the band set list in order, the menu finalized and dress steamed, but it’s important to remember the little details for a completely seamless event. Asking bridesmaids to gather these bridal essentials will help ensure a smooth ceremony and reception:

Dress Fixers

Wardrobe malfunctions are a potential disaster. I’ve seen many a popped strap, small rip or ruined shoe. Pack double-sided tape to prevent bra-exposure, safety pins to hold loose dress ends together, clear nail polish for runs in stockings, lint roller, static spray, sewing kit, fast setting glue.

Bridal First Aid Kit

  • Neosporin® NEO TO GO!® First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Spray: Between bustling your train and tearing up the dance floor, keep this close by for easy application to minor cuts and scrapes.
  • Band-Aid® Advanced Healing Blister Cushions: Whether you choose heels or flats, protect blisters with these cushioning gel pads.  The waterproof adhesive keeps the bandage in place for several days, so you don’t need to worry about it coming off on your honeymoon.
  • Benadryl® Itch Cooling Spray: Summer weddings may be warm and sunny, but they also add mosquitoes and pesky flies to your guest list. Be sure to pack this soothing spray to quickly relieve bug bites and rashes.
  • Vanishing Scent Bengay® GelAfter standing and dancing all day, rub this soothing gel on calves and feet to relieve muscle and joint pain for complete relaxation!
