    1. Lol Don! For my wedding I think I had 2 or 3 tubs with all of this- one for the bridesmaids dressing room, one for the decorating area, one put away with emergency items in it. I didn’t want to have to go through my suitcase before leaving for my honeymoon to make sure I had everything, so just had an extra kit altogether instead of using my personal items.

      Sometimes if feels like overkill, but when you need the item you are suddenly very thankful for having all that “junk.”
