Bridal Scare No More

By  |  0 Comments

Uninvited guests are not the only surprise that tends to happen on a wedding and a little premonition can go a long way in having a hassle free wedding

A bride walks down the aisle, an image of elegant beauty that most of us hope to portray at least once in our lives. She glides along in her long gown and high heels, but somewhere along the way she trips on her hem and stains her dress, or snags the trail somewhere. Although we’d all be a little hurt we would choose to move on and we’d all take care to be extremely cautious and not let such things happen. But what if you are equipped to deal with any such mishaps it could let you relax a little more and be the kind of bride who has fun at her own wedding.

Bobby Pin

Hair disasters are the worst and a couple of bobby pins in the right places can make a big difference as a last minute fix to any flimsy hair do.

Band Aid

Fashion Tape

If you are wearing something low cut, double sided fashion tapes are the best thing to keep your outfit from moving or slipping and make sure to back yourself up with more fashion tape.

Earring Backing

These tiny things can be the cause of a lot of trouble if you lose one and cannot replace it. So make sure to keep atleast a dozen earring backings on hand in case you or anyone else loses their earring backing.

Breath Mints

When you are spending hours and hours making small talk and smiling, it is necessary to be minty fresh. So be sure to keep a whole pack of mints on hand.

Tampons/Sanitary Napkins

Unless you are taking medication to prepone or postpone your periods ( which is probably the best idea), hectic schedules and stress caused by the wedding event can induce periods in some people. So go ahead and keep tampons or sanitary napkins on hand. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Medicines- Pain Killers (One each for headaches/stomach cramps Allergy Medicine, Clear Eye Drops and Antacids)

Spending hours facing flashing lights from cameras, talking to all your guests, being crowded and sweaty all can cause a multitude of difficulties- ranging from bouts of headache, stomach cramps, on set of allergy, and even gastric troubles from all the heavy food. A decent stash of medicines can help you get through most of these ailments.
