I've been asked by many brides what's in my 'emergency kit'. And recently a videographer friend of mine asked what the essentials were - he wants to have some items handy when things fall apart (literally!) and the bride and groom have not hired a wedding planner or DOC.
So... I've inventoried my giant suitcase. Many of the items on the list have multipurposes, so instead of listing by use, I listed alphabetically. It works better for my type A personality this way too! At the very bottom, you'll see some items that we make sure we keep handy if there are little ones around. It makes the day less stressful when you can keep those little hands & minds preoccupied.
