Last Minute Bridal Emergency Tips!

I'd like to think that I'll be all calm and collected on my wedding day, but s*&t happens right? And, sometimes at the most unfortunate times. If a (little) pile of wedding day do do lands in your lap, here are some cheap, last minute tips to help you keep your cool. But at the end of the long day, it's just a big party (in your honor!) so try to remember to breathe, snack and smile.

Crayola White Chalk, $1, is a quick save for any unfortunate stains or spills. By simply drawing over the stain with white chalk you won't need to wait for water or any other cover up to dry.


For a couple more,

Though you should have already broken in your shoes, what about slippage?! Take a sheet of sandpaper, about $1 per sheet at hardware stores, and buff the bottom of your shoes. Especially for when you hit the dance floor you'll want your shoes to have some tread.


Diaper pins are much stronger than regular safety pins for last minute wedding dress misshapes. I suggest you stick to the white ones, assuming your dress is white!

These are great things to have. My man of honor assembled an emergency bag for me on my wedding day that included these things and also bobby pins that matched my hair, Advil, Imodium, Shout wipes, clear nail polish, and bottled water.
