Wedding Day Emergency Solutions

By Erin Love

No matter how prepared you think you are for your wedding, a potential disaster could be lurking right around the corner. Therefore, preparing an “emergency kit” for that special day could ease your mind. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Below is a list of the most common mishaps that could occur:

Clothing Stains
There are various products that could diminish or totally erase the stain for you. For instance, hairspray on a Q-tip or Shout wipes are great to have on hand to wipe stains gently on delicate fabrics. Water marks require dabbing the fabric with a white towel and then steaming the spot to eliminate the problem. But beware—a hairdryer isn’t the best choice for drying a watermark. It may actually spread the mark.

Puffy or red eyes
A few drops of Visine followed by cold compresses can correct the problem. A cold compress can be created from anything that will fit over the eye socket – a washcloth, tea bag, quarters, etc.

Facial Spots, blotches, or acne
If such a disaster happens a day or two before the wedding, a dermatologist can administer a cortisone injection that should correct the problem. If spots appear on the morning of the wedding, however, applying concealer to the pimple with a brush for accurate application and then setting the concealer with powder, should blend the imperfection into your skin flawlessly.

Shaving nicks, cuts, and abrasions
Cuts and abrasions can happen to both bride and groom at the most inconvenient time, but there is a way to stop the bleeding without using toilet paper! Products containing both alum – a hemostatic that stops bleeding – and potassium – an antiseptic that cleanses skin and closes up the pores can be found at any local drugstore.

Having a wedding day “emergency kit” can foil a host of disasters other than the ones listed above. Below are a few more items you should add to the kit:

• Hairspray
• Makeup
• Bobby pins
• Safety pins
• Deodorant
• Super glue
