Your Wedding Planners Emergency Kit

Over the years, wedding planners gain bucketloads of experience in saving the day! Whether our fault, your fault, a bridal party members fault, a vendors fault, or just good ol’ Mother Nature’s fault, it is likely that at least one thing will go wrong on your wedding day.  By having an experienced team of wedding experts on your side, it is much more likely that issues are resolved before damage occurs and anyone else finds out!

As wedding planners, we take these experiences and we build up our emergency kits so that we’re prepared for any possible future mishaps. We swap stories with other industry professionals and think, “hmm, maybe I should add [item] to my kit in case that ever happens to one of my brides/grooms.”  We’re not super heroes by any means, but we’ll certainly try to save your day if anything happens! Instead of wearing shiny red capes, we roll shiny black bags behind us with all of the emergency necessities.

Another upside to a wedding planners emergency kit...we can not only save the bride or groom, but the bridal party, the parents, and even some of the decor, to name a few!
