A blushing bride can spend months planning the perfect wedding, only to arrive to the ceremony and realise she’s forgotten some the most vital essentials. This nightmare can easily be avoided with a checklist to remind you of the little things that can be forgotten in the wedding rush. We’ve compiled a list of the most essential things to remember on your wedding day, so you won’t forget a thing.
No matter how much hairspray you think is enough, always bring spare bobby pins to fix away any stray hairs from the wind, or dancing too hard at the reception. Bobby pins can fix all manner of hair sins and will save you or your bridesmaids when the photographer comes around.
Having a handkerchief on hand is the most important item on the checklist. Don’t get caught with mascara trailing down your cheek because you’re so happy to be marrying the love of your life. Be prepared for the waterworks! It is the happiest day of your life after all.
Personalise it by getting a hand-stitched handkerchief from a store or online at Etsy. Customise it with the date of your wedding or order matching ones for you and your bridesmaids with their initials on the corner.
You may not realise that you’ll be on your feet from the early hours of the morning to, well, the early hours of morning. Your bridal shoes may be the most comfortable shoe you’ve ever worn, but you’ll be thankful you had insoles to help you through the day. Scholl GelActiv insoles are used by brides everywhere! Your feet will thank yourself for adding that extra padding to your heels. You can get a different insole for the varying height of the heels you’re wearing, so you won’t have to settle at all on your big day.
Touch Up Make Up
This one seems obvious but getting stuck without any touch up make up spells disaster. Make sure you remember some of the essentials like pressed powder, mascara and lipgloss. You never know what could happen during the ceremony, so it’s best to be prepared.
No-one needs to get caught on the most special day of their life. So it goes without saying that having some feminine hygiene products on hand is never a bad idea. Anyway, as She’s the Man demonstrated, they’re good for accidental nosebleeds so you’re covered in case a fight breaks out (which we sincerely hope it doesn’t).
Make-up, pins, insoles and everything else on this list pales in comparison to forgetting your vows! Make sure you have a copy on hand just in case.
Much like the vows, these tiny but pivotal items must be taken care of. We know it’s usually the best man’s job to take care of the rings, but ensure that they are being kept safe and actually make it to the ceremony. You’ll avoid so much drama.
