DIY vs Buy
Bridal Emergency Kits have become all the rage, and a great gift on at the bridal shower, or even the day of the wedding. Most wedding planners have also invested in creating their own kits which they bring with them on the wedding day for just such issues. Whether you decide to buy a kit or create your own here are a couple of tips you can use:
- Shop at places like The Dollar Tree or the dollar section of stores for petite goodies or smaller portions of items
- Ask your bridal party if there are any specific items they want included in the kit
- Put the items in a cute bag or tote to add an extra fun photo opportunity
- Ask your venue or wedding planner if they have an emergency kit they plan on bringing
