    I'm a MOH in a wedding in january. I want to make a funny/cute gift for the bride. I was thinking a wedding day or night or both survival kit. So far I've come up with a few things. These are all for the wedding night.
    1. wine
    2. CD of love songs
    3. cute outfit


    Any more ideas?

    Even though I'm the MOH, I won't be around for the showers or bachelorette party so I want to do something really fun for a gift.

        There use to be a thread on this, but I couldn't find it. Anyways, here's some ideas for emergency things that may be needed during the day:

        • Hairpins
        • Breath Mints
        • Purse Mirrors
        • Safety Pins
        • Hairspray
        • Clear Nailpolish (if she's wearing pantyhose... in case of a run!)
        • Sewing Kit
        • TISSUES!
        • Wet Wipes
        • Advil
        • Some Bandaids (especially if she's just breaking in those shoes! )
        • Tampons
        • Mini Deodorant
        • Double-Sided Tape (for last minute emergencies)
        • Waterproof Mascara
        • Nail File

        Ok, those aren't so funny.. but good for the day-of Emergency Kit

          Also for the wedding day survival kit:

          -White chalk (for spots on dress, do not use any stain remover, they dye some white materials yellow and its permanent)
          -Thread in the colour of the brides dress and BM dresses
          -Black socks (in case the groom or one of the GM's forgets)
          -Hair spray
          -blotting powder
          -tooth brush/tooth paste
          -dental floss
          -clear bandaids
          -Band Aid Anti Blister stick (to put on before she puts on her shoes to prevent blisters - its awesome stuff I swear by it)
          -Crazy glue
          -Pepto
          -immodium
          -benadryl
          -earring backs
          -lint brush
          -mouthwash
          -hand lotion
          -scissors

          That is all I can think of for now. I have made a survival kit 3 times now and the brides always love it.

            Jules, I swear by the Band-Aid blister stick too! It's the best!

              Where can you find the Band-Aid blister stick? We all had blisters in Mexico for my sister wedding. I swear I had a hole in my foot for a week.

                  The Band Aid Blister stick should be in the same section as the insoles and other footcare items. If you can't find it at the drugstore, you can go to a store like REI and get Bodyglide. It's basically the same stuff but the original version used by hikers and marathoners to avoid blisters.

                  How about adding xanax to the kit? Not so funny but quite helpful!
