7 Wedding Day Essentials Every Bride Should Pack

Hair & Beauty

Sure, everyone might tell you that your wedding day goes by very fast, but when planning your wedding day beauty look long-lasting is the name of the game. You'll want to make sure you look and feel fresh all day long, especially since you'll most likely get your hair and makeup done early on in the morning. To ensure that happens, here are the seven beauty items that every bride should pack with her on her wedding day.

1. Fashion Tape
Carrying around fashion tape is always a great way to tame any last-minute issues with your wedding dress or any of the bridesmaids dresses.

2. Makeup Remover
Got a little teary during the ceremony? Happens to the best of brides! Don't fret, and just dab the running mascara off your face with a tiny bet of makeup remover.

3. An Extra Lipstick
Obviously ask your makeup artist to apply your favorite lipstick in the morning, but stash an extra one in your wedding bag for easy touchups throughout the day. That way, you won't mix colors later on and keep that pout looking kissable through the night!

4. Hair Ties
It always seems like we have a pile of hair ties, but we can't seem to find one when we need one the most. Make sure to pack a handful of hair ties. They may come in handy later in the night if you want to re-do your sweaty up-do after all those moves on the dance floor.

5. Eyelash Glue
Whether or not you're wearing fake eyelashes, having a tiny tube of eyelash glue available is a good idea for any sudden emergencies, such as bracelets or nails breaking off. Eyelash glue is sturdy enough to help with a quick and temporary fix.

6. Moisturizer
You never know how your skin is going to feel on your wedding day — but dry skin is not photogenic! If any parts of your body need a bit of love, make sure to have a tiny bottle of moisturizer available for your arms and legs. (Don't forget those elbows!)

7. Blotting Paper
Throughout the day, you might find yourself feeling a little bit oily or sweaty. Carry around blotting papers so that you can easily dry your skin without wiping off any makeup.
