When it comes to planning a wedding, a small part of your budget should always be set aside for an emergency kit take along on the day, should anything come unstuck. It’s about being prepared for everything and anything that could go wrong with your wardrobe on the day, and it’s also something you can let your bridal team handle for you, just in case anyone else needs a little wardrobe help along the way too.
Sewing scissors and a mini sewing kit
If you’ve hired or bought your designer wedding dress from Ever After Bridal Wear in Cape Town you can be confident that there’ll be no loose threads to worry about when you collect your dress, however, should anything happen to your dress in transit, or you trip on it in a way that causes a wee tear, those scissors and the sewing kit will come in very handy.
A stitch here or there could well save the day, and a snip here and there could do the same if any threads are hanging loose anywhere, whether on your dress or that of your bridesmaids.
Multi-purpose glue and superglue
Most brides don’t wear their wedding shoes or jewellery until the big day, and should a heel come loose, a tube of the right glue will do the trick. The same would apply if you lose a crystal or bead while getting dressed, whether on your dress, your shoes or that of your bridal party. Just make sure someone else in the party does the gluing, you don’t want to head for the altar with fingers stuck together with superglue!
Detergent wipes for your dress
Before you collect you collect your wedding dress from the team at Ever After Bridal, be sure to speak to them about detergent wipes or anything else that can be used on your dress should you spill anything on it. This’ll make sure you don’t walk down the aisle with a spot on your spotlessly white dress!

This is one thing no bride should leave out of an emergency kit. They are handy for everything, and, since you’re planning to be ready for everything, you’ll have everything covered by remembering to add these to your list.
