The big day is coming, and I know you’re totally focused on details like guest count, seating arrangements, travel arrangements, how to get your wedding dress to Vegas in one piece. Brides are amazing people. The day is supposed to be all about them, but a lot of times, they’re worried about the details and people around them. I always have the sweetest brides, and I constantly see them focused on others instead of themselves. Because of this, sometimes, brides forget the small details to ensure that they’re totally taken care of on their wedding day. Be prepared for anything with these DIY bridal emergency kit ideas!
Expect the Unexpected
I’m a big believer in Murphy’s Law. “Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.” I’m probably a huge believer because I have the weirdest luck. I’ve been run over by a taxi while photographing a wedding. Seriously, a taxi ran me over while I was taking photos of a bride and a groom. So maybe I’m biased. However I feel like me being run over by a taxi while photographing a wedding is confirmation that anything can happen during a wedding in Vegas.
With that being said, I’ve compiled a list of essential items I think every bride should have with her during her wedding day.
