Planning a wedding requires a lot of checklists and often, it’s the littlest things that we often miss out on. Looking at the bigger picture, couples who get married often only takes a look at the bigger picture: the wedding day. Soon after, last-minute problems arose but don’t worry because we can avoid this altogether to have a stress-free and happy wedding.

Allow yourself to also look into the tiniest details – including your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Often, it’s the people who bring unpredictability to a wedding and leave you with several issues to attend to on the day itself. Let’s altogether avoid that and use a bridal checklist for reference. Vintage Bash rounded up the important things needed by the bridal party to keep that smooth flow over the whole day. After all, overconfidence brings more harm than good.

The Ultimate Bridal Party Checklist

1. Emergency Kit

Let’s start with the frequently overlooked but necessary items on the wedding day itself. These are back-ups and lifesavers in times of unexpected issues and mishaps (case in point: wardrobe issues). As they always say, it’s always best to have everything than sorry. So better get this stuff ready unless you’re welcoming problems on your big day. It will never hurt to be ready.

  • Sewing Kit
  • Safety Pins
  • Thread or Invisible Fishing Line
  • Static Guard
  • Line Roller
  • Tide-to-Go
  • Small Scissors

  • Super Glue
  • Chalk
  • Clear Nail Polish
  • Club Soda (We know! For the stains.)
  • Steamer

2. Makeup
