As seen on yahoo.com:

Believe it or not, the following can all fit into a tiny makeup bag. Most items are inexpensive and available at your standard drug store. Pack one for yourself and your fellow brides-to-be. A fully stocked kit makes a fantastic bridal shower gift!

A tiny mirror… small and portable so you can peek at your look

A handkerchief… for tears, of course

Bobby pins and a travel-sized bottle of hairspray… to keep that hairstyle in tact

A small comb… to smooth back flyaways

Lipstain… it lasts and won’t get on your teeth

Band-aids… clear ones, for the inevitable blisters

A Tide to Go pen… for unforeseen spills

Blotting papers…for shine-free photos

Dental floss… also necessary for those photos

An emory board… to smooth out rough parts on nails that snag delicate dresses

Krazy Glue… for shoe heels, clothing jewels or other adornments that come off

Extra pantyhose… in case of a run

Clear nail polish…in case there’s no time to change stockings

White chalk… to cover up marks on your gown

Topstick toupee tape… the best double-sided tape there is

Extra earring backs… hopefully, you’re wearing screw-ins, but just in case you’re not

A mini sewing kit… tiny scissors for loose threads, a needle and thread for mending and extra buttons because someone will lose one

Safety pins… a quick fix for rips

Travel-size perfume… to keep that great scent all day long

Mints… think of all those people you need to talk to

Eye drops… happy tears make for red eyes

Aspirin… for that annoying headache

Straws… so you stay hydrated without smearing your lipstick!

Tips On How To Save on Your Wedding

1. Instead of decorating with floral centerpieces uses candles

2. Offer a wine tasting experience instead of a full car

3. Purchase alcohol from a store where you can return unopened bottles

4. Rather than allotting one slice of cake per person, order a cake that feed 75% of your guests. Alot of people  don’t eat cake especially if you are serving another dessert.

5. Hire a wedding planner

6. Choose a venue that is already beautiful

7. Set up fewer tables with more persons

8. Reuse flowers from the ceremony to decorate the reception

Get Kids Down The Aisle

Based on lots of experience the average 3 or 4-year-old doesn’t take directions very well. The following should help in getting them down but what we can’t predict is what they will do once they there:

1. Practice – Have the child physically walk down the aisle a few times to gain familiarity

2. Incentives – Have his/her parent waiting at the end of the aisle with a lollipop or toy.

3. Have a bridesmaid be prepared to hold the child’s hand or even carry him/her down the aisle.
