If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid before, you’re probably familiar with the idea of an emergency wedding day survival kit.

These “just in case” items are super important to have on hand and can save the day in certain cases! This comprehensive list covers the mainstays; pack up your tote bag, keep it accessible in the bridal suite and let your maid of honor schlep it around for you. You can also find pre-packages ones on line that are great as well!
