Groom’s Wedding Day Emergency Kit

So I love being organized. Really, I do. It's like a sickness. I am all about the labeling and the prepackaged kits for every potential need. So is it any wonder that I really enjoy reading about recommended wedding day emergency kits? "We need a roll of duct tape and some breath mints…STAT!" Hee.

Anyway, after reading about seven bazillion of these babies, I noticed a trend. About, oh, 99% of the lists are for general wedding day emergencies (meant for the wedding planner) or for the brides. I simply could not find a thing for the men. Until now…

I was cruising Real Simple's website for a pork roast recipe and accidentally stumbled upon a list of wedding day emergency kit items for the groom (random, I know). According to Real Simple, every groom (and groomsman) will be covered for an emergency if they have:

  1. Breath mints
  2. Cologne
  3. Compact steamer for pesky wrinkles
  4. Deodorant
  5. Extra bowtie or tie in case the groom or a groomsman forgets
  6. Extra buttons
  7. Extra copy of the groom's vows
  8. Extra cuff links
  9. Extra dress socks
  10. Extra handkerchief or pocket square
  11. Extra shoelaces
