Some wedding day kit necessities I might suggest are: deodorant, mints, extra make-up, dry shampoo, a shawl, sunscreen, sewing kit, alternative footwear (flats), common medicines, hair grips, neutral nail polish, stain remover, a backup razor, a portable charger, and the list goes on!
- Comfortable Attire: No matter what style dress you’re wearing, it’s important that your undergarments compliment your dress and are comfortable! When you’re shopping for the day, make sure you’re searching for a bra style that matches your dress neckline, and most importantly, make sure it fits right so that you’re comfortable and confident.

Don’t be afraid to step away for a few minutes; breathe, take it all in, and tell yourself how beautiful you are. You’ll radiate confidence!
