Ask your maid of honour to assemble a bridal first-aid kit and keep it with her at all times.
1. Safety pins
Keep a selection of sizes for all clothing mishaps and 'malfunctions'.
2. Masking tape
Useful for any hems that come undone.
3. White chalk
Draw over virtually any mark on your white dress (or his white shirt) to cover it up.
You don't want to be fiddling with nail varnish if a ladder appears.
5. A pocket sewing kit
Make sure it has a small pair of scissors and a variety of thread colours (including white).
6. Baby powder
It absorbs sweat, removes stains and prevents water marks.
7. Earring backs
You know why.
8. Hair clips
How do they always fall out with no one ever noticing?
Someone is going to cry. Or spill something.
10. An energy bar.
Nerves often deaden the appetite. You don't want anyone (specifically not you) fainting from hunger.
11. Headache pills
The tension! The stress! The sparkling wine! Having a headache on your wedding night won't do.
12. Phone numbers
Keep the contact details of all service providers so you can get hold of them if there is a crisis.
13. A lipstick you can rely on
Give Sally Hansen's Smile Brightening Lip Treatment a try – you might find it's just the thing, as it genuinely does make your teeth look whiter (great for the photographs).
