A Gift For The Bride: Wedding Day Survival Kit


Last month, when I did the wedding shower and reception for a close friend, I was looking for something that I could give her that would be useful.  I had already bought the lingerie and the wedding gift.  So, I was wanting something for the wedding day that she could really use.  This is what I came up with. 

A Wedding Day Survival Kit:



I found the adorable white satin, quilted bag at Michael's and I filled it with everything she could possibly need on her big day.
  1. A snack - Nutella on the Go!
  2. MIO - a little energy to squeeze into a bottle of water
  3. A small first-aid kit for any blisters or boo-boos
  4. Purell - never know when you need a little hand sanitizer
  5. Visine - can even be used to reduce the redness of a last-minute pimple pop-up!
  6. Nivea Lip Balm
  7. Tylenol
  8. Hand Lotion
  9. Pepto - for any pre-wedding jitters/upset tummy
  10. Blue finger nail polish - just in case she forgot her "something blue"
  11. Kleenex pocket-size tissues
  12. Orbit gum - Dirty mouth, clean it up!
  13. Travel-size sewing kit - for any last minute emergencies!
  14. Wisps - for fresh breath with no mess
  15. Q-tips - for eleventy million uses
  16. Shout Wipe & Gos - you just never know what will happen from dressing room to alter
These would make great Bridesmaids gifts too!  You could even tweak them a little for Bachelorette party favors...add in some "hangover remedies".

The Bride loved it!  She said it came in really handy on her wedding day!

In other news, I'm heading to Huntington Beach in 10 DAYS!!!  Sofa king excited.  Seriously.  I'm sure you've heard already, but I'll be meeting up with Impulsive, Seriously Shawn, Viv @ The V-Spot, Becca from The Texas Darlings, Connie from The Young and Relentless, and Jen from Harried Mom of Four*name dropper* It's a repeat of our trip from last year...


BUT we're headed to Cali instead of Texas and we're adding in Connie!  I just read my Friday Confessions from last year's trip and I'm bouncing in my seat from excitement!  Bring on the fun, friends, and fornication...KIDDING.  I wanted to tag our trip #Californication, but they informed me there would be no fornication...and that name was already taken. 

I'm linking up today to TTUT hosted by my skinny ass friends Impulsive and Shawn





No rules, just fun.  Stop by and link up!  XOXO.Photobucket

That is an awesome kit--if I remember right, it was a while ago, I could have used some of that stuff on my wedding day.
Have fun on your trip. I must admit to a little bit of jealousy. OK, OK, a lot of jealousy.

Emmy said...

That is such a great gift! It really is the little things that you forget about and end up wanting.
I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip!

My friend gave me something similar for my wedding. She also gave my mom one too :)
she bought them instead of making them.
I like your personal touch!

Connie Weiss said...

I can't wait for our trip!!!

My bridal survival kit just needs valium and tequila. I'm a simple gal.

Stacy Uncorked said...

That survival kit is genius!! I'm going to tuck that away for future reference. :)

I'd be bouncing off the walls if I were going to spend some time with all those crazy ladies - what fun you'll have! Can I tag along next year? ;)

The video cracked me up!! I'm looking forward to this year's video...hint, hint! ;)

That is a really cool wedding kit. I'm so jealous/happy for you guys and your trip. If only it was just a tad closer you guys could stop by to see me! Have a great time and I can't wait to read all about your craziness when you get back.
