Event Emergency Kits

Whether you are planning a Wedding or a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, you want your special day to be flawless.  While I don't wish you anything but perfection at your event, it is always better to be safe than sorry.  Even the most girly-girl need to think like a boy scout and "BE PREPARED".  That is why if you are not using a party planner who comes prepared with their own "Emergency Kit", I recommend putting together your own kit to keep at your event venue.  A little pre-emptive planning which anticipates all possible "minor" disasters will be well worth it .  A well stocked "Emergency Kit" should include:

  • Pain Reliver such as Motrin or Tylenol
  • Band-Aids for everything from blisters to blood
  • A bottle of water
  • Clear nail polish for stocking runs
  • Dental floss and/or toothpicks
  • Eye drops and/or saline solution
  • Extra panty hose/Spanx
  • Bobby pins, barettes or ponytail holders
  • Hand towelettes
  • Hem tape
  • Mini sewing kit
  • Safety pins
  • Scotch tape
  • Small scissors
  • Smelling salts (my brother fainted at my wedding, we could have used these)
  • Shout Wipes or Tide Stick
  • Static Cling spray
  • Straws (stay hydrated during photos without messing up any lipstick)
  • Tissues
  • Tweezers
  • Mints and/or Breath Spray
  • Comb and/or brush
  • Cash
  • Hairspray
  • Nail File
  • Krazy Glue
  • Perfume
  • Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Blotting Sheets - one of my all-time favorite products
  • Tampons/Pads
  • Hollywood Fashion Tape (for straps & hems)
  • Antacid
  • Foot Petals (another one of my favorite inventions)
  • Insect repellent for outdoor events or outdoor photo sessions
  • Chalk (to cover any last minute smudges on a wedding dress)

After your event, you can refill any items that you used and pass it on to a friend who is planning a special event of her own.
