Now, if you're looking to save a little money and you don't want to buy a kit offline, or if you're simply just the Do-It-Yourself kind of girl, we've got tips for you to make your own kit at home!

Something important to include in your emergency kit is medical essentials. This can include anything from painkillers like Advil or Tylenol to blister bandages and Neosporin. Whatever you do, make sure some headache medicine and band-aids get put in the bag!


Another essential that you'll want to have is hair pins, or really anything that may be needed to put together the perfect bridal hair style. Items like clear elastics, bobby pins, or hair clips, will be important items to include in your emergency kit because elastics break and bobby pins get lost, so having some extra ones on hand could potentially save the day!


A great staple item for your kit is having a material on hand to help with wardrobe malfunctions. Whether its super glue, double sided tape, safety pins, or a mini sewing kit, having some of these items in your emergency kit will get you through any wardrobe mishap.
