Your wedding day will end up being one of the most memorable days of your life, but while it’s still going on, Murphy’s Law may apply. One way to keep all the things that have the potential to go wrong from going wrong is to stock your wedding limo rentals with emergency kits filled with items that can save the day should disaster threaten. Here are some things you should bring along on those drives to the church and the reception.
• Umbrellas: An old superstition says if it rains on your wedding day, your marriage will be blessed. The bride-to-be’s hair stylist, makeup artist, and dress designer may not agree. Weather can turn from sunny to showery very quickly, particularly in the springtime. Always carry a stash of umbrellas in your wedding limousine for the members of the wedding party.
• A sewing kit and a small pair of scissors: Should the bride or one of the bridesmaids snag her dress on the way out the door, needle and thread can come in very handy. Limos have such a smooth ride that you won’t have any problems basting a hem while you’re riding in a limo.
• Nail polish and clippers: Nails can also snag at the most inopportune times. You won’t have enough time to perform a complete manicure in your limo, but you will be able to cut down the offending nail and apply the necessary polish as camouflage.
• Acetaminophen or ibuprofen: Weddings are wonderful, but they can also be stressful, and stress brings on headaches. Be prepared by bringing some headache medication with you when you travel.
• Comfortable shoes: Yes, those shoes look great with your dress, but how much time did you have to break them in? You don’t have to worry about looking perfect in the limo, so kick them off and slide into a pair of flats or sneakers than won’t pinch your feet.
• Band-aids: Speaking of those shoes… If they give you blisters, you’ll be very happy to have something to bandage those blisters with.
• Stain-removing pen: Uh oh! One of your bridesmaids knocked a flute of complimentary champagne on your dress. Blot the liquid off carefully and dab the fabric a few times with a stain-removing pen. Be sure to test the pen first on the underside of your dress’s hem to make sure the pen doesn’t react badly with the fabric.
