One key element to being able to relax and enjoy your wedding it to be prepared for anything that might come your way. At Counterparts we bring a special emergency kit with us to every wedding, but if you are a DIY’er, here are a few ideas you may want to consider.
q-tips / cotton balls
make-up sponges (great for removing dirt smudges off your wedding dress)
men’s black dress socks
nail polish remover
granola bars / snacks
mints / gum
static cling spray
white chalk (covers stains on wedding dress)
extra earing backs
brush / comb
needle / thread
band-aids/ first aid kits
hot glue gun
diaper pins (works great for a bustle that comes loose!)
wire / wire cutters
lighter / matches
important phone numbers of family and wedding party
If it all seems a bit overwhelming, give Counterparts a call at 402.932.2220. We can do everything from staff your event so you never even hear about the “emergency” to put together an emergency kit for you. Let us know what YOU need!

Don’t forget about the suitcase they will need to put all that stuff in! haha
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.”
