Although you hope nothing goes wrong on your wedding day, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Having a Wedding Day Emergency Kit with some basic essentials can help you handle any situation. If you hired wedding planner (which we highly recommend), don’t worry they will more than likely have a Wedding Day Emergency Kit with everything needed except for your personal items. If you don’t have a planner, we suggest appointing someone you trust to put a Wedding Day Emergency Kit together for you.
