The 5 Most Used Items in Our Emergency Kit


On every wedding day, our team has emergency kits containing everything from fashion and beauty items, to things like band-aids and tape. In this photo, you can see me holding one of our kits while loading up the bus for photos. A Joyful Day Weddings team member will bring it with to photos, just in case you need some setting powder or floss (read more about what our team does on wedding days here). You’d be surprised what we’ve accumulated – it’s like having our own personal Mary Poppins bag! Check out the five items I MUST have with me on every wedding day – you never know when you’ll need to make a quick fix!

eyelash glue

With all of the tears, sweat, and drinks that wedding days can bring, the corners of fake eyelashes tend to pop up. I always have a tube or two with me to make sure they stay in place!

fishing line

Probably the most used item in our emergency kit. We use this to attach signs to chairs, keep flowers on the welcome welcome sign, and so much more. It is so durable, lightweight, and virtually unseen in person and in photos!

static guard

There is nothing worse than putting on a beautiful dress and have it shock you or cling to your legs. We carry the big cans of static guard with us to make sure that you and your bridal party are comfortable.

over the counter medications

Whether it be the sniffles, a lingering hangover, or someone breaking out in hives – I’ve seen it all on wedding days! I always carry Benadryl, Tums, Advil, and an array of cold medication. You’d rather be safe than sorry!

safety pins

If your bustle rips or comes loose, we can fix it. If your maid of honor’s dress is too long when she takes off her heels, we can create a makeshift hem. If a guest’s zipper breaks, we can help them fix it to avoid any fashion faux pas! Safety pins are MAGIC. That is all.

These are only a handful of the crazy useful items our team has with us on wedding day. I love being able to solve problems in a pinch. Was there something super useful on your wedding day? Is there something you think we may not be carrying, but should be? Let us know below!
