Medication & More

There is nothing worse than spending the day with a banging headache that just won’t budge! We recommend packing paracetamol, sunscreen, floss and other toiletries in your wedding kit. Your guests will love the idea and they’ll definitely appreciate the gestures if a crisis strikes!

‘Just in Case’ Items

Imagine it, you’re just about to walk down the aisle and your heel breaks or your dress tears – disaster! Chances are, it won’t happen but you can never be too careful in our opinion. That’s why it’s worth packing items such as a sewing kit, plasters, super glue, scissors etc. Make your wedding day unforgettable for the right reasons…

Beauty Products

Treat the ladies to some beauty products and spare make-up! You don’t need to pack an entire cosmetics store, but a spare lipstick or concealer will definitely come in handy. It’s also a good idea to add in a can of hairspray and even a hairbrush. This will ensure that you and your guests are looking photograph-ready throughout the whole day. Plus, your guests will be able to redo smudged mascara after all of those happy tears!

Little Extras

It’s the little extras that will add the wow-factor to your wedding kit. From phone chargers to chewing gum, carefully consider the items that you think your guests would love to use on your special day.

An emergency kit for your big day is a fun and useful alternative to offering your guests wedding favours. You can use a wicker basket, wooden crate or hessian bag to hold all of your items and you can easily make it a lovely part of your special day.
