Ten Things Bride's need in their Survival Kit

If you're planning your wedding right now, I'm sure you've got a to-do list a mile (or two!) long.  You've probably chosen your dress, designed your invitations, and booked your dream venue.  Although you're focussed on the things you need to do for the event itself, a lot of brides are not aware that they need to be prepared for things to get a little cray-cray during the 'getting ready' phase of their wedding day.  You know, when you're in the hotel suite with your girls, drinking champagne, maybe having a bit of a dance party, and getting your hair and makeup done.  I don't want to rain on all this fun, but *whispers* things can go wrong.  You need a Bride's Survival Kit, and don't worry, I've got you covered.

The Bride's Survival Kit is a curated set of essential items designed to ensure a stress-free wedding day for the bride, her maids and her guests.  A miracle basket of goodies where you can find just what you need, at just the right time. 

The real truth is that no matter how well you've planned everything, there will always be unforeseen mishaps along the way, and we want you to be prepared!  A bridesmaid might need to clean her teeth after spending the morning snacking on jellybeans.  The father of the bride may need a quick brush-up before escorting you down the aisle.  A guest may find themselves with a case of the sniffles, and at some point the bride will probably need a few extra bobby pins (when you figure out where those things constantly disappear to, let me know okay).  All of these minor hiccups can quickly be resolved with the contents of your wedding day survival kit.

So what exactly is in there?  The kit includes items to handle any emergency situation that may arise.  From hair accessories to dental care, sanitary products to skincare, snacks and mints, cotton tips and facial tissues, nail tools and basic first aid.  It's all in there and when you need it, it's a life-saver!  The list of needed inclusions is long, but here are ten of the basics to get you started -
* Toothbrushes
* Toothpaste
* Breath Mints
* Hollywood Tape
* On-the-Go Snacks
* Lip Balm
* Band-Aids
* Bobby Pins
* Hair Ties
* Sunscreen

Your survival kit needs to check-in to your hotel with you so it's there when it's needed for both yourself and your attendants while getting ready.  It can then be moved on to the ladies rest-room at your reception for guests to be able to use.  They will love you for enabling them to fix their outfit or their hair in a hot minute, and get back to enjoying the party!

Sparrow's Planning clients are lucky girls because they get a complete Bride's Survival Kit included in their service at no extra cost.  We love to do everything we can to make your wedding day both easy and fun!  And our Styling and Coordination clients have the option of adding the Bride's Survival Kit to their package at a specially discounted rate.

If you're not a part of the Sparrow family that's okay!  Of course we'd love to have you on-board, but if you'd simply like to purchase your Kit from us and take it with you on your special day we're so happy to help!  It costs just $110 and you can place your order by messaging us at emma@sparrowweddings.com.au

Sure, you could put this together yourself.  But it will take a lot of your precious planning time, it will be costly, and often it just doesn't look good.  Wouldn't you rather let Sparrow take care of it, and get back to the fun stuff, like taste-testing wedding cake?
