The Summer Wedding Guest Emergency Kit

As the summer wedding invites start to rush in from your oh-so-in-love friends, sibling, cousins and college acquaintances, the first thing that typically comes to mind is “what am I going to wear?” But there’s more to being a wedding guest than choosing the right look. Don’t rely on the happy couple to supply everything you need to enjoy the day – come prepared!

There are a few mishaps you can count on when it comes to summertime nuptials. I’ve rounded up a list of everything you’ll need to stay comfortable and carefree from “I do” to the sparkler exit.

Let's Get Started!

A bed shows all the essentials to bring during wedding season.


All that dancing can work up a sweat. Don’t get caught unprepared! Deodorant wipes are a convenient and portable option that fit in any clutch, purse or pocket. For some reason, when we are all done up is when we sweat the most.

Makeup Touchup Kit

If you took the time to apply makeup for the wedding, you’ll want it to last throughout the entire event. At the very least, you’ll need a lip product to reapply after dinner and blotting tissues to cut down on shine. If you have space, throw in eyeliner too in case of any unexpected tears. If you can only bring one thing, bring powder. It will do wonders!

Breath Mints

You never know if onions and garlic will be on the menu. Stay fresh with a small tin of strong mints. I do prefer mint gum, as it lasts longer but, it is your choice.

Bug Repellant

Bugs are notorious summer wedding crashers. For serious protection from uninvited guests of the insect variety, choose a bug repellant with DEET like Muskol. Muskol will last you up to eight hours, so you’re covered even if that outdoor ceremony goes into overtime.

Mini First-Aid Kit

Weddings can be long affairs and a sudden headache or an annoying cough can ruin your day. I recommend bringing along a few bandages, cough lozenges, an antacid for stomach discomfort and your go-to headache and pain medication. Mine is Aspirin Extra Strength because it works fast!


This one is a no-brainer. Sniffling and sneezing on your plus one is a major wedding faux-pas. Also, if you know you’re a crier, these are a must. And folks, I am a crier!


 Many brides these days will put out dancing flats for guests when their toes get tired but don’t rely on it! I know wearing “sensible shoes” isn’t always an option, so pick-up an insole that can cushion the strain of standing and dancing without tripping up your style. Dr. Scholl’s has brand new ultrasoft leather insoles that add comfort when walking and dancing in heels. As a bonus, they also help to keep feet fresh and dry!

Our wedding and renewal were whirlwinds that happened in a blink of an eye. The lesson of it all? It’s always great to be prepared for anything!

What is YOUR must-have item during wedding season?

Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
