Looking, smelling and feeling good on your big day is very important so take a look at what essentials you need with this wedding day toiletries checklist.
In the beautiful hot summer of 2017, I was a bridesmaid for a wonderful friend that I consider a sister. To ensure she, and all of the wedding party, were sorted, I put together a wedding day toiletries emergency kit that anyone could use to spruce up before we went into the day.
These items were all sourced from Savers, Superdrug & Poundland (or were items I already owned and had never opened) so this project cost me approximately £15 to put together – not a big cost to ensure everyone was sorted on the big day. There are official companies who do these kind of kits (which is where I had the idea from) but who wants to pay someone else to do what you can put together yourself for a lot less!
So what actually was in the ‘Wedding Day Toiletries’ kit?
Plasters – For heel paid and general basic first aid
Ibruprofen – For headaches and morning after hangovers
Paracetamol – Some people prefer paracetamol!
Lipgloss – For the Bride
Mouthwash – For the Bride before she walks down the alter
Deodorant – For any last minute sweating (spray on only!)
Dry shampoo – For everyone to have a spruce before the ceremony
Body spray – For spraying around once dressed
Perfume – For the final touch of scent
Hairspray – For men and women in the wedding ceremony
Disposable razors – For any last minute under arm / leg hairs you didn’t realise were there.
Moist wipes – For morning after refreshing or redoing make up
Mints – again for the Bride and Grooms first kiss
New hairbrush – I had my own but this was for other bridesmaids incase anyone forgot theirs.
5 Other Ideas
Backcomb powder – to give everyone that extra oomph to their hair.
Protien bars – for the Bride as it’s a common thing you forget to eat.
Spare tights – for everyone including the Bride.
Hair grips – in the colours of everyones hair,
An extension cord – all those straighteners and curlers need to be plugged in somewhere.
To summarise, if you’re a Groom, Best Man, Bride, Bridesmaid or anyone else involved in the day then consider putting together one of these kits full of wedding day toiletries. Mine was used much more than I thought it would do and everyone was grateful. The last thing you want is for your hair to need brushing and no-ones got one.
