Emergency Kits for Brides

One of the best pieces of advice I was given before my wedding was to make an “emergency kit” for the day of the wedding. A lot of things can happen on what is supposed to be the best day of your life that you don’t plan for. A zipper could break, you could get a blister from your shoe, or a stain could appear on your dress out of nowhere. I did not want to be put in a position where I needed an item that I didn't have with me. I always say it is best to be prepared for any situation. You never know what the day may bring for you or one of your attendants. Here is a list of the items I think are crucial to have in your emergency kit:

Band aids, safety pins, Shout Wipes, tissues, snacks, water, tooth brush, tooth paste, dental floss, hair spray, travel sewing kit, tampons, pads, deodorant, mints, Chap Stick, and some pain reliever.

One really important item for the emergency kit is a pen and paper. You might want to record some thoughts about the day, write a note to your fiancé or just jot down some last minute notes for your to-do list.

Emergency kits are a great way to be prepared and to make sure you are ready for anything life throws at you on your big day. I think they are such a great idea…we give one to every bride who books a planning package with us!


Bloomington Bridal Show

This years Bloomington Bridal Show was held on February 8th at the Bloomington Convention Center. Weeks before the event, I worked to decide on linens, color scheme and started purchasing decor for the table. Much like when planning any event, I had to take this one step at a time. I started like many of our clients, by looking through magazines for inspiration. With these pieces my good friend, Meredith constructed a beautiful inspiration board.

I had a great time at the Show and met brides looking for vendors, advice and ideas.
Thanks to our photographer friends, Shelia White and Eric Rudd for taking such wonderful pictures of our table.
