The Best Wedding Emergency Kit Items

This post is for all my girls that don’t know if they really need a wedding planner, but need the extra insight as to why even a day-of coordinator can eliminate a lot of your stress. Trust me when I tell you, you will need at least one of these items and you won’t know which one until everything is happening. Essentially, you need all of it but most definitely don’t want to add them to your budget. They’re already included with me! Here are my top five emergency kit items that I bring to every event (along with a loooottt of other stuff).

#1- Cordless Hot Glue Gun

At one of my recent weddings, the cake topper broke. Obviously you don’t want to leave your cake naked and a cake topper is such a great way to dress it up. What happens when it snaps? Girl, you can’t tape that together. It would stick out in the photos and be such a waste. Having the cordless hot glue gun solves that problem and many others!

#2- Pins

Half of the weddings I have worked needed pins for the dress. Whether a clasp breaks, the strap breaks, it fits weird… The answer is pins! You never expect it to happen, but trust me it does regardless of how much money you spent on your dress. Even if it isn’t the brides wedding gown, it could be a bridesmaid dress. Pins, pins, pins!

#3- Gum and Mints

This could be highly debatable, because there are certainly other things required for a good emergency kit. But let’s be real, before any wedding starts every bride and bridesmaid takes at least one! Even the groom and groomsmen need them. After snacking and drinking champagne all morning it’s a total necessity.

#4- Tide To-Go

Back to the snacking and drinking all day, it happens. Someone in the wedding party usually needs to clean themselves up. Always a life saver when needed. Imagine walking down the aisle with a big stain from one last drink… Yikes!

#5- Wax

I personally have the Burt’s Bees wax packed in my kit, and it works great! It’s used for zippers, specifically when they get stuck or need a little help getting zippered all the way. We all know how much our weight can fluctuate and those zippers are so tiny they are easily stuck. 

Hopefully this helped you think about the little things that can happen during your big day. It’s hard to be prepared for every scenario, but I am! If you have any other questions about what I keep in my emergency kit or what else I offer to run your wedding smoothly, don’t hesitate to reach out! 



Wedding Planner in Phladelphia PA

Yes, it is finally Winter! Right now, while sitting here at my fireplace with a warm blanket and a cup of coffee in my hand I am writing about this beautiful holiday styled shoot. Even though at this moment I am looking out my window wishing it was snowing just like today during the styled shoot, I am still more than happy with how my vision came to life. Not sure about anyone else but even though the holidays are filled with all the hustle and bustle, something about the holiday season just makes you feel so happy and cheerful. Could be the music, the crisp and chill air , the bright and joyful colors, or just simply the love and happiness in everyone. Once Thanksgiving was over that’s when I had a vision to create a holiday styled shoot. I wanted a touch of modern bohemian, but also bright, rustic and cheerful vibes. I worked with amazing vendors who allcame together to create a beautiful “micro” wedding holiday styled shoot. If you keep scrolling you will follow the gorgeous day we had!

Engagement Planning

Even though 2020 has brought us a lot of postponements in the wedding industry we still have to give COVID a thanks for sticking couples together for a few months because it led to a lot of engagements. We’re so happy meeting new people like this wonderful couple Anna-Maria and Ed! Ed reached out to Designs by Daisy and had a wonderful idea to propose to his lovely girlfriend Anna-Maria. From there we started the planning process. We picked the cutest winery called the Inn at Grace Winery which is situated on thirty-five acres in the historic Brandywine Valley. We thought it would be a great idea for Ed to tell Anna-Maria they are doing a photoshoot together celebrating their 2nd year anniversary at the winery, and then in a secret location he will get down on one knee. Thank you to Kate Neal Photography for capturing all the amazing pictures from the most perfect day! 

Fall Backyard Wedding

Let’s bring us back to this amazing Fall backyard wedding! This wedding was on October 10, 2020 during the pandemic of Covid-19. Shelby and Thomas had an original wedding planned at another venue, but then coronavirus came and decided to stay. This set-back did not stop them from having the most beautiful wedding, surrounded by the people who love them most. Shelby and Thomas were set on their wedding date and made sure to find another way to say their “I Do’s.” Thomas’ aunt’s backyard became the perfect location for their new wedding! Let’s take a look at the bride and groom’s perfect day!
