I've been a bridesmaid more times than I can count, and I always take my duty very seriously. Having been known as the flighty friend in my earlier years, once my girls started getting hitched, I vowed to be the responsible bridesmaid, ready for any unforeseen mishaps on the day of the "I Dos."
So I devised The Bridal Bag: my emergency kit of any- and everything a bride or bridesmaid could possibly need on the wedding day, all contained in a white, lace, drawstring bag. Safety pins, fabric tape, sewing kit? Check. Tissues, Q-tips, hairspray, breath mints? Check. Tylenol, Tums, tampons, Tide-to-Go stain remover. Check.
