You’ve spent; weeks, months, possibly even years planning your perfect day! You have pictured the flowers, the dress, the music, even your perfect mate! It is inevitable though; that no matter how prepared, how ready, how scheduled down to the minute that you are…something will “go wrong.” Could be something as small as a bridesmaid forgot the earrings you gave her to wear with her dress or something as big as someone has to be sewn into their dress….Yes, we have witnessed this…But remember at the end of the day; you will be a Mrs…which is all that really matters, right?!?
“Bridal 911” will help prepare you for those little missteps on the day of and hopefully give you some insight; so that you are ready when the florist says; “Oh, you didn’t want roses in your bouquet??” Breathe…remember what the day is about…and we’ll make sure you look gorgeous saying “I do!”
Today’s “Bridal 911” is all about the perfect emergency kit! This is a task you can give someone else: your Maid of Honor, your mom (she’ll love this job!) or even your sister…here are some of the must-haves we have seen many brides use or wish they had on the wedding day!
