It’s my cousin’s wedding day! And I couldn’t be more excited!!
She was a bridesmaid in my own wedding 8 years ago, and I am more than happy to return the favor. You see, back when we were little girls (who obsessively read Babysitters Club books, watched Beverly Hills 90210, and assigned random celebrity code names to all of the members of our family), we made a pact to be bridesmaids in each other’s weddings someday. And today, that last step in our childhood pact comes true! Of course, we always imagined that I would be marrying Jason Priestley and she would be marrying Luke Perry, but I would say that our childhood selves would still be quite pleased with the dashing men we chose!
To make this day of hustle and bustle a bit more relaxing and stress-free for all involved, I decided to put together a wedding day emergency kit. I filled it with items that I thought we might be in need of last-minute or just in case. It’s hard to envision and try to prepare for every scenario known to man, but I think we will be ready for just about anything with these items in easy reach:
- compact brush/mirror combo
- bobby pins
- white nail polish
- safety pins
- Tide To-Go
- lint roller
- floss picks
- mini first aid kit
- pain medicine (asprin, ibuprofen, etc)
I am also including this purse-sized emergency kit, which contains:
- sewing kit
- emery boards
- double stick tape
- more flossers
- hair tie
- band aids
I put everything into this super cute large blue cosmetics case. I will throw it into my “getting ready” tote bag when I meet up with the girls this morning to get ready. I plan on adding a few other items to the tote bag as well…tissues, a mini deodorant, maybe some snacks and water.
Now we are ready to face the day! Time to get the big day started! I will be back in a few days to share more about the wedding and hopefully a few pics as well.
