DIY Life:

Chances are, despite careful planning and attention to detail, there will be something that doesn’t go exactly as planned at a wedding. Weddings are human events, and we humans are known for making mistakes.

You can help your bride-to-be or groom-to-be relax by gifting them with a wedding day emergency kit. Just knowing that someone else has the small stuff covered will give them a little breathing room to focus on the bigger picture.

A bride’s kit might include things like:

* extra panty hose
* mints
* bobby pins
* smelling salts
* important phone numbers
* cash (including change for parking meters, etc)
* umbrella
* white chalk (to cover stains on a white dress)
* iron
* clear nail polish

A groom’s kit could include:

* a sewing kit
* extra black socks
* extra cuff links
* antacids
* driver’s license
* snacks
* spot remover
* extra shirt buttons

The best gift a friend, family, or members of the wedding party can give is a relaxed, fun-filled day for the bride and groom. These DIY emergency kits will definitely help them feel more prepared for the little emergencies that are sure to happen.

Editor’s note: You could put these “emergency kits” together in a little box or case and sell them to local bridal shops, sell them on eBay or sell them on a web site as a weekend business.
