What Goes In the Wedding Day Survival Kit: First Aid For the Wedding Party and Guests

Weddings can be pretty stressful. Headaches and tummy troubles are usually common for at least one member of the wedding party or one guest.  Being prepared for these things to happen can help prevent someone having to leave the party early.

Headache Aids – Weddings tend to be week-long celebrations.  Get rid of headaches and other aches and pains with some acetaminophen, aspirin or ibuprofen.

Antacids – Nerves can do funny things to anyone’s stomach. Keep antacids on hand for the bride, groom or maybe a nervous parent.

Band Aids – These are convenient for small cuts and pricks of course but they have another use.  Heels can rub the back of your heels when they are new causing blisters and discomfort.  Putting a band aid on the spot where the shoe is rubbing can help keep this to a minimum.

Alcohol Wipes – Use these for cleaning any cuts, or wiping anything sticky off hands.

Cough Drops – These are great especially if the wedding is being filmed and someone has a cough from a cold or allergies.

Benadryl – Benadryl can help avoid red watery eyes in wedding photographs.

Gas-X – To ease discomforts from certain foods for the guests.
