Accidents can happen anytime — even on your wedding day. Stains, tears, and wardrobe malfunctions spare no one, so you should be prepared on your big day. That’s why we’ve rounded up 10 must-have items for your wedding day emergency kit that’ll keep the festivities going smoothly, no matter what gets thrown your way.
So you can still party while wearing white. It’s made from fruit and vegetable extracts and contains no phosphates or bleach. It comes with two convenient biodegradable travel size tubes, and works on both fresh and dry stains. Psst…it also works to help remove ink and blood. Good as new. ($9.94, Amazon)
On the most nerve-racking day of your life, it's normal to be a little sweaty — so you’ll want to be prepared to stop B.O. in its tracks. These deodorant towelettes are plant-based and aluminum-free with a lemon and sage scent that neutralizes and removes odors. Plus, they cool and soothe without leaving behind residue. Smell ya later. ($8, Amazon)
Like your heel falling off or shoe coming undone. This adhesive isn’t just a quick fix, it’s a permanent solution to any shoe mishaps. It works on leather, vinyl, rubber, and canvas, and can even add extra traction to your shoe's surface. Plus, it dries clear and it’s waterproof, so you can head back to the dance floor discreetly. ($5.99, Amazon)
This one’s not just for the bride — it's perfect for the whole bridal party too. This double-sided tape can handle one-shoulder bra peeks, too-low cowl necks, or V-neck plunges. It comes with 50 strips of transparent tape that’ll work with any skin tone. So nothing tries to play peekaboo on your big day. ($10.99, Amazon)
It's small enough to toss in a clutch and is perfect for securing casual updos or braids (and everyday styles and blowouts post-wedding). We love the brushable formula that leaves no sticky residue and hydrates while fighting frizz. No flyaways or dull hair here. ($12, Amazon)
Forget slapping a bandage on achy blisters — this balm stops them from developing in the first place. All you have to do is apply it to places that typically form a bister (hi, back of the heel) before you put your shoes on and let it do the work. It’s vegan and made with plant-based ingredients, like apricot and comfrey leaf essentials, plus vitamins A and C to help soften skin. Your feet = happy as can be. ($8.99, Amazon)
The Philips One has a battery-operated version and a rechargeable version, but both use micro-vibrations and include a two-minute timer feature for an efficient clean. The brush is housed in a sleek, convenient travel case that’s easy to pop in a small bag, and it comes in a bunch of fun colors. Pro tip: Dentists recommend replacing your brush head every three months. ($19+, Amazon)
Because you’ll need to be photo op–ready at all times. These come in tiny carrying cases with 12 sticks each. They’ve been designed not to shred, break, or stretch, and there’s an extra tartar pick in the handle to take care of any plaque buildup or food debris. Say cheese. ($0.99/pack+, Amazon)
