It's basically a kit to make sure that if there are any last minute alterations, mistakes, issues or fixes that need to be done then they can quickly and easily.
We recommend that these kits include the following, first aid related items such as banadages, plasters (also essential for rubbing shoes), pins, makeup, clips, hair spray, sewing kit, tablets for headaches, mints, clothes and wipes. So you'll be able to fix all sorts of emergancies from fashion to beauty.

Make sure that everyone knows there roles on the days leading up to and day of the wedding so you don't have to make sure that they are all doing what they are meant to be.
We call it 'The List' and basically it's a list of alternative suppliers, just in case something happens such as the florist falling ill and not being able to supply the flowers. With a list of other suppliers you can quickly contact them at late notice and hope that they can help you out.
By having a list of suppliers that you have already looked at and approved to some extent, so they may not be your first choice but you would still be happy with them means that if you do have to look for a different supplier it takes away time and stress. A list of suppliers should include florists, food caterers, music/bands/DJ, photographer, makeup artists and even venues.
