Wedding Day Emergency Kit


Wedding Day Emergency Kit | Laura Hernandez Photography

Besides our gear, there is one bag we won’t leave home without on a wedding day. Our wedding day emergency kit! I cannot count how many dozens of times this has come in handy. We started with the basics, but by listening to what our brides need most, it keeps growing and growing. We keep things small and buy the travel sizes of everything we can. We don’t want to be a traveling drug store, but these have saved the day a few times.

First and far most, our wooden hanger from Katie Michelle Designs. There is nothing like photographing a stunning wedding dress on a plastic hanger. Never again! You can customize the calligraphy to say just about anything that will fit, but as photographers, we chose “bride”.

Here is our top 10 MUST-HAVE’s in your Wedding Day Emergency Kit:

  1. Bobby Pins | Hair Ties | Hairspray
  2. Tissues | Wet Ones
  3. Ibuprofen | Band-Aids
  4. Deodorant
  5. Mints | Floss | Mouthwash
  6. Sewing Kit (keep it super simple)
  7. Lip Gloss
  8. Lint Roller
  9. Lotion
  10. Tampons (because you never know!)

    We’re SO glad you found it useful! We can never leave home without a wooden hanger. Plus, the one we use is only $10. Can’t beat that and it’s adorable!

    This is like a wedding Macgyver kit! I’ve needed a good portion of those things at a wedding before. the lint roller is genius! Something I keep wanting to bring but forgetting is a little flat mirror for ring shots 🙂

    Those are not the typical thing that I bring but I think that is worth carrying around.
