Emergency Wedding Day List Hawaii
No matter how much you plan and how organized you feel, things can and do go awry on The Big Day. The good news is that you can be proactive by anticipating potential snags and taking steps to “Be Prepared” as the Boy Scouts say and create your own DYI Wedding Day Emergency Kit. By expecting the unexpected and having the right tools on hand, you can up the odds that you get to actually enjoy your wedding day, instead of running around dealing with last-minute “uh-ohs.”

As a wedding photographer in Hawaii, I’ve seen all sorts of issues arise, and even had a little taste of disaster when I ripped my (not-so-cheap) Christian Dior pantyhose on my sister’s wedding day. I’ve been asked for everything from toothpaste to bobby pins, and seen how even the smallest mishap can cause a boatload of stress. Assembling a Wedding Day Emergency Kit is a great idea for any type of wedding, but is especially useful for destination weddings held in hotel facilities, vacation rentals, or on the beach. Even for the not-so-DYI-er this is a breeze to put together. Trust me, you don’t want to be the one who’s sweaty and self-conscious about underarm odor because you forgot to bring deodorant reinforcement.

Entrust the creation of your comprehensive Wedding Day Emergency Kit to one of your attendants so it’s ready to go from the time you arrive in your prep area or hotel room. For the assembly of your ER kit, I recommend using a nice fabric covered box or accessory bag. Also, your attendant should start gathering the items about two months before the date to ensure everyone in your wedding party is looking, feeling, and smelling their very best from the time you walk down the aisle to the end of the night.

To help you have peace of mind and protect you against uncertain forces, I’ve put together the following list of handy items that could mean the world in a pinch. Print out the list (I highlight items in a yellow highlighter after I purchase them to keep track easier).
