From everyday essentials to wedding-specific items, below is a list of must-haves for your wedding emergency kit. I recommend storing items you know you’ll use often in a tote or purse with the rest in a small container or box that can be accessed easily by other members of your wedding party (like lint rollers for the men – super crucial if they’re wearing dark suits!).

Bonus tip: Start sourcing these items 3-4 months before your wedding date! This way, you won’t feel rushed to get all the items all at once and can take your time getting the right brands/products.
