DIY: Wedding Emergency Kit

emergency kit

Here is a quick list of things that I would throw into a quick emergency kit. These are just things to have for backup especially if you do not have a wedding planner (they usually bring their own). I will continue to add to this list over time, hope it helps. Happy Planning!!!
