5 Must-Haves for Your Bridal
When it comes to your wedding day, "better safe
than sorry" should be your motto. Being prepared can turn a
potential disaster into a mere small mishap. For starters, you've
probably already thought to have these basics on hand: blotting
papers to prevent a makeup meltdown, hairspray to keep the frizz at
bay, and tissues to touch up smudges and dry those happy tears.
But what about those other problems you might not have
considered? We don't want to send you into a panic, but there a
slew of beauty mistakes that don't involve your hair or makeup.
To give you peace of mind we rounded up a few fast fixes for
common bridal blunders. Stash them in a day-of emergency kit
(and put one of your bridesmaids in charge of it) and you really
will have all your bases covered.
Walking down the aisle is just the beginning of your long day in
heels. To make sure you actually make it to the dance floor
later, be sure to pack a blister-blocking balm, which you can
swipe on heels and toes to minimize friction from your sandals.
Sure, Tide to Go is a smart product to carry, but you should
also bring along a piece of chalk. It may not dissolve stains on
your gown but it can cover them no matter the fabric -- lace,
beading, or silk.
Even if you got a mani/pedi the very morning of your big day,
breaking or chipping could happen later. Filing down your nails
can erase a broken or chipped edge in seconds.
Just in case your get the last-minute jitters or the hor
d'oeurves don't sit right, keep a tube of Tums on hand. The
antacid will quickly calm an upset stomach and prevent your face
from turning green.
No water toothbrush
Mints will freshen up your breath but you also will want a mini
scrub so your teeth stay pearly white in all of those photos.
