The Ultimate Emergency Kit for Wedding Planners

As Wedding and Event planners we highly recommend carrying an Emergency Kit with you….At all times! A good wedding planner will always have a stock of emergency wedding supplies, including items that the bride and her attendants wouldn’t think to have on hand! While we hope you don’t have emergencies on the big day, it is always better to be safe than sorry. We created our own Emergency Kit and we each carry one in our cars at all times “just in case”!

The cool thing is that we have used it for a wedding or two. We had to sew the buttons back onto the suit of one of our grooms one day and we’re glad we had our handy little sewing kit available ;o)

So think about it … with just about $70 you can possibly save the day. Before you restock your emergency Kit for your next event, be sure to contact your bride & make sure she has no allergies to any specific medications you may have or any snacks you pack in your kit.
