It's time to walk down the aisle! You've spent months planning every detail to make sure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch. From the flowers and decor to the perfectly-placed escort cards, you're ready to go.

Minor mishaps—especially of the fashion and beauty variety— are bound to happen over the course of the evening. That means it's a good idea to have a little stash of helpful items on hand in case you need them while you're getting ready or during the after-party festivities. In the flurry of the day, you'll also want to keep essentials (think hand sanitizer or lip balm) nearby.

Whether your kit is stored in your MOH's clutch or in a special reception-ready bag, you'll feel more at ease knowing you have the gear in case something —whether it's a broken button or a blister—comes up.

Here, everything you need for the ultimate wedding day emergency kit.
