Bridal Emergency Kit

One of the shower gifts A. received from her bridesmaids was a 'Bridal Emergency Kit.' We found a super cute Roxy makeup case and filled it up with things she may/would need on the big day. I totally forgot to take pics of A's actual kit but here's a similar makeup case from Roxy.

Contents:

-sewing kit
-bobby pins
-gum
-mouthwash
-hairspray
-deodorant
-blotting paper
-manicure kit (tweezers, file and clippers)
-eye drops
-Advil®
-Tylenol®
-Tums®
-allergy pills
-Bandaids
-Bandaid® Blister block (new product...I'm going to have to ask A if it works)
-moist towelettes
-hand cream
-Tide® Pen
-flip flops
-snacks (chocolate, roasted nuts)
-drinking straws
- a note saying "Just add water!!"

What else would you have included?

Update: Bridechka passed along a great recommendation..."White chalk. It is a must have! If the bride gets a stain on her dress, the stain sticks sometimes make it worse or leave giant wet spots but use a little bit of white chalk on it like white-out and you won't see a thing."

Oh my goodness. I just came across your blog- I attend weddings/am in weddings ALL THE TIME. I think we might need to be friends!

Oh my, that's quite a kit!
I can't think of any suggestions. Let's hope one wouldn't need a tampon on that day though.

@Mo: I totally thought about including some but then thought it was too personal. lol. But knowing my luck, it would be a must for me.

I hear that the foam you get with drycleaning (the stuff they put on the hanger) works wonders for deodorant stains.
I also include:
- travel toothbrush/toothpaste set
- safety pins (if not in the sewing kit)
- mini lint brush
- hair elastics
- black socks (in case any boys need them)
- a mini mirror
- q-tips

Thinking about it, I should also start including earring backings.

I think that's everything :)

I am getting married in June and I had that same idea for my bridesmaids. I had overnight bags made(ordered online) with their names sew onto them in the color of my wedding (brown/blue) We are all staying at a hotel the night before the wedding so i included a lot of things you listed plus shampoo, razor, lip gloss/balm, snacks,waters.

Safety pins and double-sided tape! I remember needing the latter when I lost weight after getting my bm gown altered. That tape saved the dress!
