AL about the Bride Bag!


The day of your wedding will be a total blur! Staying as organized as possible will make it so you can enjoy every minute of your special day without feeling stressed and frazzled! I always thought making a wedding day emergency kit was pointless and I probably wouldn’t need it…wrong! There were so many things we were looking for in the bridal suite that we just didn’t remember to bring. I kept all of my wedding day items in a tote bag that way I wouldn’t forget where they were in all of the chaos of wedding day! 

I used this cute “Bride” bag that my bridesmaids got me! I put all my day-of essentials in here that way I didn’t forget anything! Link here !

AL the things you will need in your bag:

  • Benadryl (I woke up with hives the day of my wedding so this is necessary) 
  • Advil (In case you get a headache)
  • Pepto Bismol Tablets (In case you get a tummy ache from all the stress)
  • Cough Drops 
  • Airborne Chews (In case you wake up feeling under the weather )

** All of these things happened to me so it’s better to be prepared!

Beauty Essentials:

  • Face Powder
  • Lipstick to reapply 
  • Chapstick (If you put this on a stuck zipper it will help it zip up smoothly!)
  • Hairspray 
  • Curling iron (Some of my bridesmaids needed a touch up) 
  • Bobby pins (To help pin your veil) 
  • Deodorant 
  • Lotion 

** Tip: Keep a small clutch at your head table or sweetheart table with powder, lip stick, gloss, mirror, tissues, q-tips etc. That way your not running around to reapply your lipstick! You can even have your coordinator or bridesmaids set it there for you before the ceremony!


  • Steamer (So important! For bridesmaids robes, dresses, suits!) 
  • Scissors (To cut off tags, snags off dresses, everything!) 
  • Tape
  • Safety pins
  • Floss 
  • Extra Earring backs (Mine broke while getting ready)

For the Bridal Room:

  • Snacks (Don’t forget to eat)
  • Water (Stay hydrated)
  • Phone chargers

For your Photos:

  • Ring boxes 
  • Invitation 
  • Pretty Hanger For your dress 
  • Perfume bottle 

*My photographers were amazing and had all this stuff for me, but just in case they don’t you will want these cute detail pictures.

The obvious:

  • Wedding gown 
  • Veil
  • Undergarments (Don’t laugh some of us forgot!)
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Garter (Don’t forget to put it on before the garter toss)
  • Most importantly… sandals for the dance floor! This is a must! 

Fun tip: Make a DIY emergency kit for a bridal shower or engagement party to take some stress off of the Bride-to-Be!

That’s Al about the Bride Bag!
