Emergency Kits

Being prepared for any issue that may come up was very important to me because I am that person that always has a wet wipe and pain meds at the ready for anyone that may need them. My wonderful maid of honor tackled the Day Of Emergency Kit for the bridal party. I provided some ideas from my experience as a banquet server (lots of safety pins!) and a wedding coordinator (multiple scissors!). We also used some trusty Pinterest posts for anything we may have missed. I also wanted to create concierge-type bins for our guests to be placed in the bathrooms to help keep everyone comfortable and dancing (lots of Tums!). From there, we hit Target together to fill both needs… watch out world!

While it’s been a bit since we put these together, here is what I remember gathering for each.

The bins were also from Target. They snap together and have a handle on top.  They worked perfectly!
