We've shot enough weddings to know that no matter how prepared you are, things can go wrong! That's why we always take an emergency kit with us so we are ready for the unexpected.
This might seem like a strange one but chalk can be a quick fix to a stuck zipper. The last thing you want on your wedding day is the zipper on your dress not working. Rubbing a little chalk into the mechanism can help get problematic zippers unstuck. Chalk can also help cover up marks and stains on your dress. We take white and pink chalk with us.
2. Hollywood Tape
Another quick fix for a common dress problem is Hollywood tape. If your strapless dress isn't fitting right around the bust then Hollywood tape can keep it secure. You never know when you might need to reapply it if it comes unstuck so it's good to have some spare.
3. Baby Wipes
Mess happens! Make sure you have plenty of these to clean yourself up quickly.
4. Gels for heels
Heels look great but they quickly become uncomfortable. Don't underestimate how much walking you will do on your wedding day. We always carry some gels in case someone in the bridal party's heels become to painful.
You'll spend a lot of time outside during photos and the last thing you want is to get a sunburn before your reception.
6. Sewing Kit
We've seen it all at weddings. From holes in dresses to the zipper straight up breaking. Sometimes you just have to do a quick fix so thats why you should keep a sewing kit handy.
7. Bobby Pins
This is a straight up no brainer. Make sure you have plenty of these as hair will come out of it's styling throughout the day.
8. Clear Nail Polish
Here's a tip. Clear nail polish can be used to fix runs in your stockings. Paint over the run with the nail polish and this will prevent it getting any bigger.
9. Mosquito Repellant
Mosquitos suck, literally. They can also leave nasty bumps on your face and body. So it's a good idea to have repellant handy to keep them at bay.
A wedding is a workout! Don't forget this some deodorant.
