As picture perfect as we all imagine our wedding day to be, the truth is, there will always be hiccups along the way. A bridesmaid might chip her nail, a groomsmen might need a little lint-roller action on his tux and the flower girl might stain her dress. Just ask rockstar event planner, Kristin of Kristin Banta Events, accidents are bound to happen! So, we teamed up with her to put together a downloadable survival kit checklist. The better prepared you are, the smoother your day will go!

From Kristin Banta EventsEveryone should have an emergency kit handy on the day of an important event. As an event producer, I would not show up without it. However, the emergency kit is not just a necessity for event producers, it is also great thing for a bride/groom to have when preparing for the big day.

Anticipating anything big or small that can go wrong on the day of is key to producing a successful event. After over 20 years of working in the business of weddings and events, I’ve pretty much been through it all in terms of minor or major mishaps. From the bride and groom forgetting their rings, to the mother-of-the-bride falling into a pool, allergic reactions, overtanned bridesmaids, groomsmen in gym socks with their tuxedos, even fires, floods, and hurricanes. Gradually these things have led me to having the mindset of “expecting the unexpected.” 

We’ve included a list below and a downloadable survival kit checklist! You can also check out my video from Hallmark’s Home & Family Show to see what I stash inside my emergency kit.
