Wedding Emergency Kits: What You Need to Know

By FPL_RachelR

Something’s going to go wrong at your wedding; I hate to break it to ya, but it’s true. It may be minor, it may be major, but something will go wrong.

Thankfully, with a handy-dandy Wedding Emergency Kit, you can be prepared for the most common wedding speed bumps. Put together a kit for each side of the wedding party and put the most responsible member of each in charge of it.

I recommend printing out a list of everything you include in each kit so you have an inventory. Oh, and just so you know, in my experience, the two most-used items in the Groomsmen Kit are the playing cards and the food!
