No 318: the Emergency Kit

Monday, November 30, 2009

100 Layer Cake is always featuring the best DIY projects, and this bridal emergency kit is no exception. A template for the packaging is available on the website, but then you have to decide what to put in it! As someone who is always carrying an emergency kit, I'll let you in on a couple of my "must have's".

Benadryl: You never know who's 'llergic.
Ibuprofen: You never know who's hungover.
Tide/Shout wipe (whatever your laundry room allegiances lie): You never know who's still drunk.
An ace bandage and athletic tape: You know someone's going to sprain their ankle in their shoes.
A sewing kit, or, given the amount of space, a pre-threaded needle with color-appropriate thread.
Band-aids, for obvious reasons.
Chewing gum and dental floss.
Saftey pins, a little double-sided tape and packing tape, which can repair nearly anything.
Bobby pins and a small, non-aersol can of hairspray.
Clear nail polish, for stocking runs, fabric rips and general disaster.
Tissues: You never know who's going to cry the hardest.

Of course, there are plenty of other things you'll want to keep on you, too, like makeup for touchups, and white chalk for disguising any last minute splotches on your dress, but if you've got all those things handy, you'll be ready for nearly anything. And trust me, the emergency kit always gets used.
