The Ultimate Wedding Day Emergency Kit

The Ultimate Wedding Day Emergency Kit

In my years of being a wedding photographer,  I’ve witnessed many wedding day mornings in which someone was scrambling to find something. Each time this happens, I make a mental note for me to add it to my Wedding Day Emergency Kit.

At first, the kit was nothing more than a tiny makeup bag and has now expanded into a full box and tote bag. It’s a little more for me to carry but if I can help alleviate some of the wedding day craziness, I’m all over it!

I’ve categorized the contents of my Emergency Kit below and I think some of the items may blow your mind!
