Springtime Showers


Springtime is busy for us and the most inquiries we get tend to receive are for bridal showers.  Whether you’ve had yours, you’re currently planning it or have one to attend – we all know it’s about the gifts!  Registries make it easy to gift shop these days, but I like to give something a little more…something with more pizzazz.

Specifically, one of my favorite gifts to give is an emergency bridal kit.  It’s one of my signature gifts and I’m pretty much known for it.  Granted it is first stocked with wedding necessities, it can be restocked with other vital items related to your activities, such as road tripping or camping.  It’s also great for the bachelorette party!

I love to collect the items in a classic ‘Kaboodle.’  This particular one was found at Wal-Mart for about $14.00.  Additionally, I place the name of the bride-to-be on the mirror with scrapbook stickers.

Before going ahead and creating your kit, be sure to contact the bridal party members to see if anyone else had the same idea in mind.  It’s a popular gift, you know, and one kit should do the trick.

Here’s my personal list that I have used numerous times to create a custom bridal emergency kits:

  • Liquid Courage (Mini liquor bottles)
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste
  • Floss
  • Tic Tacs/Gum
  • Chapstick
  • Make-up Remover
  • Face Wipes/Oil Absorbing Sheets
  • Stain remover
  • Deodorant
  • Hair spray
  • Tissues
  • Q-tips
  • Manicure kit
  • Deodorant
  • Clear polish (in case a dress or stockings rip)
  • Bobby pins
  • First aid
  • Safety pins
  • Fashion/fabric tape
  • Static guard
  • Medicine (Tums, gas-x, Benadryl, Advil)
  • Sewing kit
  • Lint roller
  • Epi-pen (summer weddings)
  • Hand wipes
  • Chalk (bride’s dress is typically white so chalk can cover up a tough stain)
  • Krazy Glue
  • Eye Drops
  • Lighter
  • Scissors (usually in the sewing kit so optional)
  • Straws (don’t want to ruin your lipstick when hydrating)
  • Sunscreen (only for outdoor weddings)
  • Lotion
  • Contact solution
  • Baby Powder (helps with chaffing thighs)
  • Feminine products (tampons/panty liners)
  • Comb/Brush
