When it comes to your bestie’s wedding day, there is no such thing as being over prepared. The truth is, no matter how well you plan for it, you can never anticipate what mishaps may happen along the way. Stay one step ahead of any day of disasters by packing a wedding day emergency kit full of style and safety supplies. Below we’ve put together a list of everything you never knew you’d need, broken down into four functional categories.

Obviously, this is a crazy amount of items, so we don’t expect you to pack each and every one. What we do recommend is choosing a few from each category that you think will come in handy on wedding day, then purchasing each in its travel size at a local drugstore. Depending on the quantity of supplies you select, we love this makeup bag or its bigger tote twin as packaging options.
