Throughout the Goin’ to the Chapel series I’ve mentioned having a “Big Day Bag” a few different times in my posts.  But what exactly is a Big Day Bag?
A Big Day Bag is basically an emergency kit, also called a wedding day survival kit.  It’s full of things you might not think you’d need – and that you hopefully won’t need – but that you’ll want to have just in case.  Here are a list of items you might want to pack in one:
  • Band Aids
  • Safety Pins
  • Tissues
  • Floss (you would be amazed at the myriad of uses floss have. It’s like Duct Tape.)
  • A small sewing kit
  • Mints
  • Aspirin or other pain reliever
  • Baby Wipes
  • Snacks and cold bottles of water (for you and your bridal party)
  • Double-sided tape
  • Mini hairspray and mini brush
Of course you may want to include other things, as well.  If you’d like to save yourself having to think through what you need, there are some great wedding day survival kits that you can purchase.  The Knot has a Wedding Day Survival Kit that has some of the above items (and some additional ones).  Amazon also have one for the groom, the bridesmaids, and mother of the groom.

Having a kit – either purchased or homemade – will be well worth the time, effort and cost if it helps keep something random from ruining your big day!
