The Party Girl’s Emergency Kit
While no one wants to think about emergencies, it’s always better to be safe than sorry! A handy pack with all those easily forgotten items can be a lifesaver – and not just for weddings. The party season is a hectic time and running through Woolies in your evening frock isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time!
Pack a small tote with some mini essentials and you’ll be ready for anything. Emergency kits make the perfect gift too – why not fill a gorgeous custom bag with some emergency items as a gift for your bridesmaids, mum or work mates? We guarantee they won’t leave home without it! If you’re not one for DIY’s, you can also purchase a variety of pre-made kits online.
When you’ve been on your feet for hours dancing the night away (or running in and out of the photo booth!) and the blisters start to set in – you’ll be glad you packed band aids! Consider the packages with various sizes so you’re equipped to deal with sore heels, toes (and any other body part!).
Mini Sewing Kit
No one believes that their super expensive designer gown will suffer any fashion emergencies, but it’s always best to be prepared! At nearly every event, there will be group of women in the bathroom trying to sew someone back into her dress after she has experienced a dreaded zipper quandary! Don’t be caught without a mini sewing kit on hand to help get you (or another guest) through the rest of the night.
During a long day of preparation and festivities (and a few glasses of wine), it’s not uncommon to forget to keep yourself hydrated. At the first sign of a headache, you’ll want to have some pain killers at the ready so the party can continue. Panadol Rapid or another fast acting pain reliever is best so you’re able to be back dancing up a storm or enjoying the photo booth in no time!
We’re sure we don’t need to explain this one, but breathe mints are among one of the most easily forgotten items. Here is your gentle reminder!
Hair ties/bobby pins
No matter how much hairspray and how many bobby pins have fixed your hair into the perfect, most flawless style; sometimes it just can’t hold up against vigorous dancing! With all of the hugs and congratulations going around, we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t seen someone’s jewellery get caught in someone else’s perfect hairstyle!
We all know there’s little worse than peeking in the mirror two hours after dinner and finding a piece of spinach lingering between your front teeth! While we’ve seen some awesome photos using food in the photo booth, food between your teeth probably isn’t the look you’re going for! For those remnants that you just can’t quite reach with your fingernail, dental floss or toothpicks will save the day.
Again, one we probably don’t need to explain. A touch up on your deodorant after a long day is never a bad idea! Most grocery stores have a travel section where you can find mini deodorant options so they’re not taking up all the room in your clutch.
There’s nothing worse than putting a run in your pantyhose as you get out of the car! Many brands sell two packets in one so wrap the spare pair in a small zip lock bag and keep it in your bag – just in case. They don’t take up much room and they just may save some drama on the night. A bottle of clear nail polish is also a good idea – if you’ve done some damage to your pantyhose but it’s not a disaster just yet, a dab of clear nail polish on a hole will stop it spreading to an unrecoverable run!
A broken or chipped nail can really get on your nerves! They catch on everything and are a surefire way to ruin your perfect manicure. A nail file in your bag will ensure you’re equipped to deal with any fingernail disasters that may occur while you’re partying up a storm.
