What’s Inside a Wedding Pro’s Emergency Kit

OMG! It’s Wedding Day afternoon, the family is at the venue, already dressed and ready to line up for pictures, and the officiant is calling for a pre-ceremony ring check.

BAM, the rings are nowhere to be found. After a stressful exchange of “I thought you had them, no I thought you had them”, the fact is, the rings are still in the bridal suite half an hour away and there is no time to go grab them.

Doesn’t this sound like pretty much a chaotic nightmare of a situation just a few hours before saying I do? Pretty much!!! But, it doesn’t have to be that way!!

I know you are thinking that the above scenario is no place you want to be – But if something along those lines happened, all it takes is being prepared for the worst and planning for the best. How you ask?

Insert a Planner’s Emergency Kit here. The below list will give you a sneak behind the curtain at what you would find if you had a look inside my Emergency Kit I take to all Betty Jane and CO’s Weddings.
