Most wedding days come with some minor emergencies that call for some quick thinking and handy DIY skills. You never know if it will be a broken zip, torn veil, or red wine spilled on a white shirt. Being prepared for these bumpy bridal moments is essential. So here are seven emergency tools no wedding day kit should be without.
It's one of the number one items called for on wedding days when things go wrong. A sewing kit including a few different-sized needles and light and dark-colored cotton can save the day.
Most people never leave home without them, so it makes sense to take them to the wedding. Wet wipes are a miracle invention that can clean up spills, dirt, dust and unsightly marks. They are also great for using to clean children's hands and faces, so they look perfect in the wedding photos.
You probably hired a professional makeup artist to make you look gorgeous on the day. But it's also wise to carry a small supply of your own mascara, lipstick and powder for touchups after the ceremony.

A hair brush or comb can tame stray and unruly hair. You want to look your best all day long and it will take your photographer ages to edit if your hairstyle isn't looking how it should.
