Bridal Emergency Kit

I thought the idea of a bridal emergency kit sounded cute, but practical at the same time, so I decided to make my own. Here it is:

Here's what's in the kit:
  • Bobby pins & a hair elastic
  • Chapstick
  • Lint roller
  • Band-Aids
  • Safety pins
  • Gum
  • Instant stain remover
  • Nail file
  • Fashion rescue tape (double sided)
  • Mini sewing kit
  • Tissues
  • Deodorant
  • First aid kit
  • Medicine (aleve, immodium, cough drops)
  • Straws (to keep lipstick from fading)
  • Tampons
  • Wrinkle spray
  • Hair spray
  • Oil blotting sheets
I plan to keep the kit in the bridal room that's located above the ballroom where the reception will be held.  That way if I (or any other ladies) need it, it's close by!

*Hair Update*
So, I've decided to give the hairdresser another chance... she is coming to Baltimore (to make it up to me since she missed the trial) on Tuesday at 4:00.  Hopefully, I will have nothing but good things to report.  The down side is- Scott is most likely going to end up seeing my hair.  I think I'm okay with this though, because I'd rather him see it and me get to test the hair style out, vs. him not seeing it and me not knowing if the style will hold up well.

Also worth mentioning- we have managed to squeeze enough out of the last bit of our budget to get a videographer.  Yay!  At first I was unsure about a videographer, so I abandoned the idea for a while.  Then I started to entertain the idea again not to long ago, only to find that the videographers that weren't super-cheesy cost a fortune!  Luckily, I was persistent in my search and found one that looks talented and is within our budget.  We have decided to go with Well Spun Weddings.  They do vintage wedding films and were rated "Top 25 Trendsetters" by Modern Bride.  We will be getting the one song edit, in addition to 3 DVDs with chapters of the ceremony and important reception events (both of which contain real audio), as well as all of the raw footage.  So happy to be able to preserve so many great memories from our day!

I can't believe the wedding is only 43 days away!!  I have created a wedding checklist of all the things I still need to get done before the wedding....still so much to do!!
