What Should the Maid of Honor Bring on the Wedding Day?
If you're short on time and just want the list get it here:
At one of our weddings last summer I couldn't find a safety pin anywhere in our venue kitchen and had to use pliers and two heavy-duty straight pins to fix a strap on a girl's dress.
Another bride had an amazing crew of about 15 women who swooped into the venue and decorated that place in less than two hours with florals, personalized rustic chic decor and wine barrels.....but someone forgot the small card holder for the gift table.
The point is, these things happen friends. One way or another, someone is bound to forget something on the day of your wedding.
The great news is it's totally not the end of the world and, when it comes to your maid of honor, today's blog post and checklist will help mitigate this exact thing.
So let's chat...
Here's the list of 40 Things Your Maid of Honor Should Bring on
Your Wedding Day
Sunscreen (especially in the mountains!)
Backup makeup kit (don't forget under-eye concealer and mascara!)
Safety pins (small and large) and straight pins
Extra pens (to sign the marriage certificate)
Cell Phone - Save these phone numbers for the wedding day: the venue, wedding planner, Mother of the bride and transportation vendor.
Clear nail polish
Strapless bra or pasties (don’t forget extras!)
Bling Wipes (to clean rings before the ceremony)
Bug spray (outdoors)
Remind the bride to bring: the Marriage Certificate, her Driver's License and Passport (if needed for the honeymoon).
Overnight bag or tub to put all of this in during and after the wedding
Snacks (like protein bars) that are easy to transport and cleanup
Hand written note of encouragement for the bride
