It’s inevitable. You think you have planned for every possible scenario, and you’re so sure absolutely nothing is going to go wrong on your big day. And then it happens. There’s a tear in someone’s dress. A bridesmaid has taken a tumble and scraped her knee. Someone’s got a migraine or stomach problem and isn’t feeling well. The reality is, emergencies and snafus sneak up on everyone. How can you combat these last-minute annoyances?
What to Include in Your Wedding Kits
A good way to get yourself prepared for any problem situation, while bestowing the bridal party with a special gift as a thank you, is to give everyone a wedding kit. Wedding kits are little satchels or boxes that contain anything and everything you could need in a pinch. We’re talking bandages, sewing kits, advil, wet wipes, you name it. Giving one to each member of your bridal party is a great way to show how much you appreciate all of them, while also getting them armed and ready for anything and everything that can happen.
These kind of kits are available for purchase from a few different companies and retailers, but it is far more fun to make them yourself. Plus, when you buy these supplies in bulk, you’ll be saving money in the long-term. On average, you can expect to spend around $20 each if you buy kits pre-made. That can add up pretty quickly, especially if you’ve got a large bridal party!
Make it Personal
Doing the kits yourself also gives you more control over what should be included. You can make sure each bag contains a special trinket that is personal to each girl. If you want to take things a step further, you can have each bag or box monogrammed, either buying them that way or doing it yourself with something like a calligraphy or glitter pen.
There are so many ways you can go about making wedding kits, that they are the perfect gift to give to your bridal party!
